Damo Suzuki: The Accidental Anarchist

Mike Barnes, Wire, July 2004

Damo Suzuki is the legendary vocalist with German group Can, but he has been perfecting his unique mode of 'instant composition' all his life. Having survived a life threatening illness, a spell as a Jehovah's Witness and life as a salaryman, he's back with his Damo Suzuki Network on a Never Ending Tour, nomadically performing all over the world and connecting with local musicians in an attemtpt to become more than just a musical tourist.
