The singer from 70s krautrock legends Can visits The Continental for a solo show, backed up by Lancaster based experimental rock band 3D Tanx.
Most famous for his work with seminal experimental rock band Can in the early 1970s, Damo left the band and retired from music in 1974 after providing the focal point for their three most celebrated albums, Tago Mago, Ege Bamyasi and Future Days. Emerging again in the late 80s, Damo has since spent his life on an almost-permanent tour, improvising at each performance with an international network of musicians - known as the Damo Suzuki Network.
Recent collaborations have included a mini-album with Mars Volta lead guitarist Omar Rodriguez Lopez, an album with Ninja Tunes' Sixtoo, and countless live performances with the cream of the international experimantal music circuit.
Backing band 3D Tanx have been at the forefront of the north-west progressive rock scene for ten years, and have performed concerts all over the country, including as part of an exhibition at Tate Britain in 2006, The Working Class Go To Paradise.
