Inner Space: The existence of this record has been widely denied. According to the official "CAN-Book", the band changed it's name from Inner Space to Can in December 1968. One month earlier, they had recorded the music for a movie called "kama Sutra". The Single "Kama Sutra, parts 1 & 2" saw the light of the day in January '69 on Metronome, credited to Irmin Schmidt alone, and Inner Space was used as the name for the Can studio fro now on. What we have here is an Inner Space Single from '68 on Vogue, writers credits go to Irmin, Mischa and K. Lea (whoever Mr. Lea may be...). It's a soundtrack again, although we've never met someone who recalls the movie "Agilok & Blubbo". The flip is the wonderfull "Kamera Song", where Inner Space join forces with Rosy-Rosy, infamous Munich actress, blessed (or cursed) with a set of bells to even scare Russ Meyer. We'd kill for a copy of the movie...
The Renegades: were exactly that, renegades from their Birmingham play grounds, driven to continental exile by lack of success and to much competition. In 1965 they were Finnlands No. 1 attraction, they rivaled The Sorrows and The Primitives in Italy at the end of the Beatboom, and in between, they rolled up Germany. Not only did they chart with damn fine versions of "Cadillac" and "Take a heart" like they'd just invented acceleration, they even had a minor hit with one of the most explosions of Freak Beat, "13 Women". Like The Monks, The Smoke or The Creation,
