Damo Suzuki

In 1973 metaphysical transporter and singer DAMO SUZUKI left the legendary experimental rock band CAN, to which he gave his voice and energy on some of the bands most ground breaking music albums and eclectic live shows. Going on pilgrimage and a journey for mystic exploration that still lasts on until today, Mr. Suzuki then started his own live music project: The DAMO SUZUKI NETWORK, traveling the world to perform completely improvised live shows together with primarily young and unknown musicians from local psychedelic underground scenes. – https://www.damosuzuki.com/
Sadly we lost Damo Suzuki on February 9, 2024. I very much regret that I never got to see him live. Looking for video of times he played Philadelphia I’m even more upset that I never made it out. I found a couple of his shows here one with both Bardo Pond and Stinking Lizaveta ( I just noticed both videos have the same date either that was a very busy day for Damo or one has the wrong date). The Bardo Pond set is also available as an audio download from archives.org. I’ve thrown in some other things I found including an amazing Can documentary from 1972.

National Wrecking Company


The National Wrecking Company gathered around singer songwriter, Lars Din in the early 90s in West Philly. The band featured Mike Watson on mandolin and electric guitar, Gordon Rice on bass, Cheshire Agusta (Stinking Lizaveta )  on drums, and Glendon Jones on fiddle. We played every Sunday for several years at Cafe Cairos, 40th & Baltimore Ave., Philly and Fridays at Sine Cafe in Manhattan. Performances often lasted until the wee hours if not all night and included many roving sit-in musicians. We loved and hated each other in equal measures. Describing music I’m involved with is a job I normally leave to others but I’ll make an exception. The National Wrecking Company created and clung for dear life to our own form of post Dylan urban swamp pop chaos. Lars wrote a good lyric and constructed some decent melodies we could throw our axes at.
