When you joined Can, were they still living in the castle?
No, by that time they were at Inner Space, a studio they made in an old cinema. It was a kind of a commune, we were there every day for 3 years when we weren’t touring. We had such an opportunity to make records because at that time many bands didn’t have their own studio. We could record at any time without any charge, so we would record for 12 hours and then edit the tapes afterwards to make songs. Because of our different situation we developed a new method of working.
