Energy: A Documentary About Damo Suzuki

Very excited to announce I am an Associate Producer on the forthcoming documentary about Damo Suzuki’s battle with cancer and his return to the stage. Made by Michelle Heighway, who made the excellent “Mr Somebody” about Huddersfield eccentric Jake Manglewurzel.

I was present for the first couple of batches of filming so I might even appear in front of the camera. I certainly saw my arm in the trailer:

So, while it’s all been filmed, post-production and marketing ain’t cheap so there’s a crowdfunding campaign set up to try and raise some funds for that. Lots of great rewards involved including mugs, t-shirts, artwork and, of course, the film itself. Get involved here

UPDATE: signed vinyl & digital downloads added to rewards!
UPDATE#2: crowd-funding now over. £13,566 GBP raised by 178 backers. Thanks to everyone who got involved, this is going to be a great film. I’ll make sure to buy a big bunch of copies of the finished project for the Was Ist Das? shop so watch this space.

FREE VIDEO OF DAMO SUZUKI WITH KAWABATA MAKOTO

Are you aware of the internet archive? Thanks to them I was able to find a copy of the old version of this website and put all the old articles over on the features page. They also store non-copyright media. You can download films that have have expired or lapsed copyright such as “Nosferatu” or “Night of the Living Dead”. They also have a live music archive where you can access for free live recordings of artists who don’t mind their shows being distributed in this way.

Well, I thought it was of particular note that they have a video of a Dublin gig played by Damo Suzuki [ex-Can] and Kawabata Makoto of Acid Mothers Temple along with some local collaborators. You can download it from:
