By the time they were ready to record their first album they had teamed up with a an incredibly volatile fl American artist called Malcolm Mooney, who had no musical background save the ability to scream and moan effectively.
Mooney's demented performances were part of Can's live appeal but it soon became clear that much of this dementia was real.
Apparently, Mooney had found, down the back of a sofa, an air ticket the band had sent him in the US a decade before, and was prompted to renew contact.

Mooney's bizarre and (often apparently psychotic) ranting stood in contrast to the stark minimalism of the music, which was influenced particularly by garage rock, funk and psychedelic rock.
Malcolm Mooney's voice has been compared to that of James Brown and their early style, rooted in psychedelic music, drew comparisons with Pink Floyd.
Early concerts found Mooney and Suzuki often able to shock audiences with their unusual vocal styles, as different as they were from one another: Suzuki's debut performance with Can in 1970 nearly frightened an audience to the point of rioting due to his odd style of vocalizing.

Called Malcolm Mooney, he went on not to New York but to Cologne with Irmin, who had been so impressed with his hyperbolic imagination and insatiable verbosity that he's asked him to become the band's singer.
Mooney had never sung before, but he threw himself into the role with fervour, and locked the band into a positive direction.
Malcolm Mooney had found an unused airline ticket stuffed down the side of his armchair and had contacted his former sparring partners to suggest they made another record together.

The Mooney Suzuki might have done just that at the legendary garage festival, Cavestomp, in 1999 when they opened for the mythic Aguilar and Co. To be absolutely fair, the CWB did something that borders on heresy in the garage world.

 Malcolm Mooney (Can) with Tenth Planet and Daevid Allen (Gong) with The University of Errors
I'd seen Malcolm backed by a similar group of people on a couple occasions a few years back, and always been highly satisfied with the mix of Mooney's high-energy poetic delivery, excellent improv music, and fine reinterpretations of early Can songs.
Mooney has an amazingly unique delivery style (somewhat reminiscent of Robert Calvert), and can really spit it out; he was quite mesmerising, whether subdued to whisper level or ranting aggressively.
The University of Errors obviously hadn't been doing this for as long as Tenth Planet (as previously mentioned, members of that band have backed Malcolm Mooney on numerous occasions over the last 5 years, wheras I believe this was the University's first public performance), but were still a great band for Daevid.

The Mooney Suzuki had the good fortune of forming right before three-chord garage rock tackled the American zeitgeist in late 2001, entitling them to street cred withheld from the Vines and the Strokes.
Albums haven't communicated that energy wholesale; instead, the Mooney Suzuki has used the recording studio to clue listeners in to the pop songwriting craft lurking beneath the hard rock fireworks.

 David Tyack With Malcolm Mooney - Rip Van Winkle - Review - Uncut.co.uk
On Rip Van Winkle, he teams up with ex-Can singer Malcolm Mooney for a heartfelt tribute to Washington Irvine's classic short story about an idle fellow who falls into a deep sleep and wakes up to find those he once knew have passed away.
Mooney's abridged reading was recorded in Yonkers—not far from the Catskill mountains where the story was set—while Tyack's accompaniment was composed and produced in his hometown of Manchester, alongside the nine instrumentals that comprise the first half of the album.
Uncut hope he's working on his new opus somewhere, because Rip Van Winkle is a bewitching album, and a fine introduction to one of Manchester's finest young artists.

1970 was a transitional period for Can, since the band's first singer Malcolm Mooney was getting into a profound psychological crisis and finally decided to leave the band and to return to the United States.
Mooney's voice is very hoarse and the lyrics are soon reduced to the mere title while his voice gets weaker and weaker.
After that the album finally closes with a smooth and tender ballad with strange lyrics sung by Malcolm Mooney.

Mooney left in 1970, partway through a series of movie-music sessions, and was promptly replaced by Damo Suzuki, an itinerant freak from Japan who integrated his voice into the band's improvisations more than Mooney had.
In 1986, the original lineup of Can -- including Malcolm Mooney -- reunited for the sessions that became Rite Time, but they don't seem to have been too excited about them; the album didn't appear for almost three years.
It's identifiably Can, and not embarrassing, but the old magic is absent, and Mooney bellows away without much relevance to what the band is playing.

This song, which features Mooney yelling what appear to be the highlights from a love letter, has been covered in abbreviated form by The Geraldine Fibbers, Thin White Rope, and others.
Mooney returned to America soon afterwards (on the advice of a psychiatrist, according to legend) and was replaced by the less overtly challenging Damo Suzuki, a Japanese traveller found busking outside a cafe.
Suzuki was a very different sort of singer from Mooney: his multi-lingual (he claimed to sing in "the language of the Stone Age"), often inscrutable vocal style (somewhat influenced by Yoko Ono) added the missing ingredient to a set of playful pop songs.

Perhaps inspired by Mooney's presence, and Czukay settled back on bass, the music contained here truly satisfies in tracks like "On The Beautiful Side Of A Romance"--where the late Karoli lets it rip--and "The Withoutlaw Man"--with its sinuous and long riff and Mooney's best vocal in the whole record.

"Can's debut is the only full-length, proper release to feature original vocalist Malcolm Mooney, whose free-form ranting is matched by a raw, aggressive dynamic unlike anything else in the group's canon; driving, dissonant songs like the extraordinary 'Father Cannot Yell' and 'Outside My Door' even owe a rather surprising debt to psychedelia and garage rock.
Delay 1968 features classic early recordings with Malcolm Mooney on vocals, recorded in Nörvenich, Germany in 1968-69, not released until 1981.
"A collection of cuts featuring early vocalist Malcolm Mooney, these seven songs are among the very first Can ever recorded; while nowhere near as intricate or assured as the group's later work, the visceral energy of tracks like the deranged 'Uphill' and 'Butterfly' is undeniable." -- Jason Ankeny.
