An album of material was recorded, initially entitled Prepared To Meet Thy Pnoom, although no record company was willing to release it. Can made a second attempt at recording an album, which became their debut Monster Movie. It was successful in the German underground scene of the time, and combined the band's Velvet Underground-influenced rock with Mooney's mixture of paranoid ramblings and James Brown-style vocal funk. Prepared To Meet Thy Pnoom was released in 1981 as compilation album Delay 1968, and various other tracks that Mooney recorded with the band during this period appear on Soundtracks, and the compilation Unlimited Edition.
He rejoined Can in 1986 to record a one-off reunion album, Rite Time. He also has released one album with the band Tenth Planet, on which a new version of the song "Father Cannot Yell" from Monster Movie appears. In 2002 Mooney was invited to sing on Andy Votel's "All Ten Fingers" album - on the song "Salted Tangerines", a version of Mooney's poem of the same name. Mooney now focuses on his visual art. In 2007 Matthew Higgs invited Mooney to exhibit a piece at New York's venerable White Columns.
Malcolm Mooney appears on the following original albums:
