A Finiflex Compilation album And Away They Go was released to critical acclaim in 1993. The band was redeveloping their studio complex in Leith during this period and coordinated all management, recording, press and merchandise from there. For the writing and pre-production of the band's fourth album they relocated to a small crofting settlement called Sheigra. near Kinlochbervie in the north west of Scotland. In 1994 the band released the single "Brand New" and although a minor hit the relationship with London/FFRR was cooling. The album was launched with a sell out gig at The Shooting Gallery, Edinburgh with Davy Henderson's Nectarine No. 9. The band toured the UK with their most successful gigs for several years, headlining the ICA in London. They recorded the first ever John Peel live session and released three further singles for Infectious.
Listen to the biggest hits from Ege Bam Yasi, including Radar Egg, Eggboy, Sponge, and more on Slacker Radio. Mr Egg is a bald Scot and former plumber who took the name for his techno operation from a Can album. Despite such antics, he built his reputation with a series of increasingly successful acid tracks. These include the Indigestion EP (1991) and ‘Highblow’ (Groove Kissing 1991), though the then-group’s career had first begun way back in 1986 with ‘Circumstances’ on Survival
Nevertheless I Want More became their biggest single hit even leading to an appearance on the BBC’s Top of the Pops! The quirky Cascade Waltz is playful and follows the style of the songs on Landed but Laugh Till You Cry, Live Till You Die is a lazy, extended and ultimately pointless reggae which outstays its welcome by at least 3 minutes. It’s a tough call between this and Ege Bamyasi for top spot in this listing. Ege is the more completely formed and consistent album but Tago Mago just wins out on the strength of the first two sides and in particular Hallelujah, Can’s greatest ever work.
