Is it punk? Is it dub? Is it disco/rock? These are some of the questions you'll ask yourself as you listen to Full Circle, an album by former CAN members Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit, as well as former PiL member Jah Wobble. Even with the renewed praise for CAN in recent years, their solo endeavors have remained severely overlooked and underappreciated. Thank goodness to the fine folks at Gronland Records for shining a light and making this seductive dub-rock-dance album available again. From the dubby-disco track "How Much Are They?" to the super dissonant "Trench Warfare" this album takes a few listens to fully appreciate, but will likely remain in your collection for repeated plays for years (just writing this review is making me itch to play my personal OG copy back home). 6 tracks in all, released by Gronlond Records.
