A very special documentation of European musical energy arrives courtesy of this collaboration between artists Damo Suzuki (ex. CAN, Damo Suzuki Network). Badun (Danish jazz-electronica), and Snöleoparden (Danish experimental and world music).

 

For many years all three artists have been part of the same European music circuits, performing alongside each other on several occasions in different constellations. The result of a shared appreciation and desire to make music together, this album is the crystallisation of their combined musical understanding and vision.

 

Recorded LIVE in front of an audience at the legendary venue in Mejlgade 53 in Aarhus, the eponymous title of the album celebrates a venue that for two decades has been one of the strongholds in Northern Europe for experimental music.

 

 

Damo Suzuki

“To create time and space of the moment” is one of his creative motion. In this way, he made more than 1,000 shows – one and only performances around 45 countries with more than 7,000 local sound carriers (musicians) since 2003, after US attack on Iraq He is curious about oyster to Mesopotamia, try to 48billion brain cell to build up his Football Stadium. He is a ‘68er fake hippy but happy. Believing in Natural (God made) System and not trust in human made system (Artificial). Keeping healthy stomach and brain, switch off all those MSM and Silicon Valley snob media that bring only ugly energy. He is a waterproofed Japanese with bone and skin, but not with a camera. He joined Oliver and Jonas few performances.

 

Oliver Duckert

Generation ’79, grew his musical wings around Århus, Denmark, recording and producing electronica and playing jazz for more than 20 years. Founder of the chameleonic group Badun in 2002 and a long time organiser involved in the electronic avant-garde movement in Denmark, he has helped curate influential festivals and events in and around the city of Århus, introducing experimental music in all in many different guises throughout the region.

 

Jonas Stampe

Danish experimental musician with a unique life-path. As an 18 year old he became a student under the late Indian maestro Ravi Shankar and a year later became part of Shankar’s live group. Creating the musical alias Snöleoparden in 2004, Jonas embarked on a musical journey that taken him to Greenland, Indonesia and Pakistan, where he has collaborated and toured extensively – from royal cremations to Black Magic ceremonies in Indonesia, and stadium concerts to secret Sufi festivals in Pakistan. Jonas released his debut album as Snöleoparden in 2008.

Back in those distant days of live music in packed, sweaty rooms I remember attending this concert with fellow Terrascope scribe, the illustrious Ian Fraser who if I remember rightly enjoyed or perhaps more accurately endured a lengthy and unexpectedly confusing taxi ride across Liverpool that nearly made him late for it (I’m sure his autobiography will explain more about this adventure at some point).

Part of the 2018 Wrong Festival at Liverpool’s Invisible Wind Factory (any schoolboy humour will be punished, or at least punned) and other nearby venues, this set was one of the absolute highlights of a fine day of psychedelic rock.

Mugstar and Damo are no strangers to each other having shared a stage and recordings before this gig and their mutual pleasure in working with each other is clear to see and hear. It’s a pretty impressive marriage between Mugstar, one of the most interesting bands working today in the field of inventive and exploratory psych and space rock and one of the most iconic vocalists in the history of Krautrock who still crams in an eclectic and busy worldwide schedule of collaboration and free improvisation projects.

Weird Beard have generously provided us with the chance to relive the full forty or so minutes of a dynamic and memorable set, a wide ranging improvisation taking in many diverse twists and turns on its path. Underpinned by a solid yet varied rhythmic platform, Mugstar create a musical canvas where light and shade is created through guitars that shimmer and soar, compelling and memorable riffs that propel where needed and feed melodic ideas providing texture, colour and contrast.

There are generous servings of driving motorik, touches of desolate spaghetti western landscapes, flashbacks to echoing and tense early eighties psychedelia tinged new wave and Stooge-like energetic and exhilarating solos and riff fuelled sprints which come and go through the set keeping it varied, unpredictable and most importantly exciting.

Using this canvas, Damo Suzuki treats us to his full array of vocal talents, sometimes leading the music to new places and sometimes responding to the challenge set by Mugstar. At times harking back to the wailing improvisatory style of his Can days, sometimes growling like Tom Waits and then crooning like Scott Walker (or even Ian McCullough) at his most desolate and experimental, Damo’s chameleon like and indeed unique approach to singing is demonstrated at its very best here.

You can see some good videos of this set on YouTube but there is something to be said for letting the audio pleasures on offer speak for themselves. I really enjoyed the set as a punter but this well recorded vinyl time capsule is already offering up some new delights unheard in the general hubbub of the crowd on the night and is pretty much essential listening for any fans of Mugstar, Damo or indeed of high quality and inventive improvised or psychedelic rock.

Strongly recommended for your audio pleasure.

Notice

Nobody expected things like this happen in this depth – worldwide!
Forced to stop daily and private life.
Everybody is forced to live in this scary and mysterious situation, no light of fortune sight able at this moment.
Nobody knows how long we have to live in this situation.
Bad news comes one after another.
I just wished only I had this nightmare, hard to believe now this is reality.
Many things had been changed into wrong direction since then.
If you believe in conspiracy or not reality is here.
After postponed Italy tour, unfortunately followed by this North American tour also postponed.
I was ready to go, a week before situation was different – an another world.
US booking agent Space Agency booking and I agreed to cancel long waited North American tour.
Just hope near future finally able to travel to everywhere I like to perform.

Stays this abnormal situation spend time with alternative thing and don’t put your head in sand..
Wish you all stay healthy and wish you all in positive energy flow.
Hope to see you near future!

Energy!
