* CreepyJazzMusic: Part of their GenreBusting reputation came from Jaki Liebezeit, who prior to Can, used to play in a forerunning European free jazz band. He brought his influence to the band, and provided a frenetic, primal sound for the rest of the band to improvise (and, by extension, [[NightmareFuel/{{Can}} create nightmares]]) on top of.

** When interviewed on the release of the 2012 compilation ''The Lost Tapes'', Holger Czukay made the distinction that Can's jamming wasn't the usual method of having them dick around on their instruments until they landed on an idea, but starting with a specific idea in mind and focusing on isolating its key elements and seeing where it could be taken.

This resulted in the songs working both in ''and'' out of the scene's context.
