Damo Suzuki at the Black Box
Saw Damo Suzuki (ex-Can vocalist) play at the Black Box last night. Damo’s band consisted of local musicians – 3 drummers, 3 basses, and 2 guitars. The show started with about an hour and a half long set of krautrock-esque improvisation, and after a short break finished with about another hours worth of improv. Although at times mesmerising, unfortunately the black box wasn’t the ideal venue for this kind of long free-form workout, and could have benefited immensely from being held at an outside festival where the music could be dipped in and out of. Definitely worth seeing though, and even signing up for a chance to play in one of his gigs. Check out the Damo Suzuki Network for more info.
