Damo Suzuki is best known as the singer of German group Can on their LPs ‘Soundtracks’, ‘Tago Mago’, ‘Ege Bamyasi’ and ‘Future Days’.
[audio:01 – i want more.mp3]This period exerted a considerable influence on artists such as P.I.L, David Bowie, Brian Eno, Sonic Youth, The Jesus and Mary Chain and The Fall, who released the tribute ‘I Am Damo Suzuki’ in 1985.
Much of Can’s output was made through, in Damo’s words, ‘instant compositions’, a thread which continues in to his current musical incarnation in the Damo Suzuki Network. From 1998 on Damo has taken the Network on a ‘Never Ending Tour’, and ‘Sound Carriers’ have included members of Can, Acid Mothers Temple and Guru Guru among many others.
Since his first Australian tour in 2004, Damo has been backed on several occasions by The Holy Soul, including appearances at the Big Day Out and Oren Ambarchi’s ‘Maximum Arousal’ series. Together they have released the collaborative album ‘Dead Man Has No 2nd Chance’ (2010). Damo and The Holy Soul are happy to bring their collaboration to Europe for the first time.
