In collaboration with Vinyl Record Guru, Lance Rock Records and CHLY 101.7 FM, as part of the store's ongoing 25th Anniversary celebrations Fascinating Rhythm is proud to present the legendary CAN vocalist, Damo Suzuki.

From 1970 to 1973, Damo Suzuki was the singer with German �Krautrock�/experimental music legends, CAN. He was seen busking by Can members Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezit, who asked him to join the band, so Damo accepted there and then and sang with Can that same night! He then went on to record the seminal albums �Tago Mago,� �Future Days� and �Ege Bamyasi,� three releases that helped define Krautrock and still sound fresh and innovative today.

Damo left the music business in 1974, resurfacing in 1983 with the idea to tour without a band, instead preferring to hook up with local musicians in any given destination to play improvisational shows. Known as the Damo Suzuki Network, hundreds of musicians around the globe act as Damo�s �Sound Carriers,� and in Canada have included such as members of Do Make Say Think, Broken Social Scene and Black Mountain. The beauty of this arrangement is that neither the ad-hoc bands nor Damo know where the performances might go. But �go� they most certainly do, and with the Nanaimo band comprising members of Moths & Locusts, Wolf Parade, Colliding Canyons and Fascinating Rhythm�s own Luke Nixon, 63-year old Damo�s first ever performance in our fair city promises to be incredible. With a supporting bill featuring the �gentleman�s techno� of Nanaimo's amazing Top Men, and Victoria�s post-punk/Krautrock outfit, Freak Heat Waves, the word �unmissable� springs to mind.
