Damo Suzuki is best known as the singer of German group Can on their LPs ‘Soundtracks’, ‘Tago Mago’, ‘Ege Bamyasi’ and ‘Future Days’. 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 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)
Camera are a Krautrock trio – Michael Drummer (minimalistic drum set: tom, snare, cymbals), Franz Bargmann (e-guitar), Timm Brockmann (keyboard, laptop) – with occasional guest musicians. Up to now there are no recordings, they just want to play. And most of all they play spontaneously and unannounced: on the street and in subway stations, or as unwanted guests at highly official after parties like the German music award Echo or Deutscher Filmpreis, until the security notices they are not supposed to be there and kick them out. But wherever they play, their improvised and minimalistic physical Krautrock always fills their audience with enthusiasm.
After two one-sided 12″ vinyl releases (“Tenebroso” on Holidays Records and “Live at Outside Inside” on Xhol Recordings) the first SQUADRA OMEGA full lenght is finally out on Holidays Records in LP+ 7″ format. Squadra Omega is a psych/avant/krautrock collective with former and present members of the Mojomatics, With Love and Be Maledetto Now! devoted to free improvisation, psychedelic jams and mind blow ups.
The open line-up change on every track. Members of Squadra Omega gather at their analog shelter – Outside Inside Studio – and this time they definitely walked new paths and reached higher peaks of experimentation.
