R.I.P. Damo Suzuki (1950-2024) 28 replies

Japanese krautrock legend Damo Suzuki has passed away at the age of 74, following an extensive battle with colon cancer.

Suzuki was best known for his stint with Can, with whom he recorded three albums: Tago Mago (1971), Ege Bamyasi (1972), and Future Days (1973). These records are widely recognized as pioneering the krautrock genre, as well as being highly influential to future experimental rock acts. As the band’s frontman, Suzuki adopted a loose, often improvisational approach to his vocals and lyrics – fitting nicely with the other band members’ jazz and avant-garde backgrounds. The group’s music was incredibly eclectic, encompassing elements of funk, jazz, psychedelia, space rock, musique concrète, and much more.

Following his departure from Can in 1973, Suzuki became a Jehovah’s Witness and stopped making music altogether. However, he eventually left the denomination and returned to music in 1983 under the name “Damo Suzuki’s Network ...more
