D.A.M.O. Interview

Archie Patterson, Eurock, 2002

DURING THE MONTH of October Damo Suzuki and band made a short tour of the US in support of the excellent new album Odyssey. They played several dates along the West Coast. During their show in Portland on 10/07/00, Damo and I met up and arranged the following interview. It offers a glimpse into the past and current musical ideas of one of the original movers and shakers (literally) of "Krautrock." To see him live after all these years was a gas, and the fact that he has lost none of his energy or spontaneous creative juice was refreshing to say the least.
