This past weekend, Stephen Malkmus helped to celebrate the 40th anniversary one of his favorite albums, Can’s krautrock masterpiece Ege Bamyasi, by covering the album in full at Week-End Fest in Can’s hometown of Cologne, Germany. The local band Von Spar backed him up. Below, check out professional footage of Malkmus and Von Spar playing “One More Night,” “Pinch, and “Soup.”
