"Future Days" Album Description

Can's "Future Days," released on 12" vinyl LP by Spoon Records, is a landmark in the history of experimental rock. Featuring the talents of bassist Holger Czukay, this 1973 album marks the final chapter for vocalist Damo Suzuki with the band.

"Future Days" takes a sharp turn towards an ambient soundscape, a stark contrast to Can's previous efforts. The title track itself exemplifies this shift, while the epic twenty-minute journey of "Bel Air" fully embraces the new sonic territory.

This newfound focus on atmosphere doesn't negate the driving force that has always been Can. Czukay's ingenuity as an engineer shines through, shaping the foundation for the band's sonic exploration. With Damo Suzuki's departure after "Future Days," the album holds a special significance. It serves as a poignant farewell, a final testament to the powerful creative partnership between vocalist and band. .

About Damo Suzuki

Damo Suzuki, born Kenji Suzuki in Japan, was the iconic vocalist for the influential German experimental rock band Can. He was discovered busking in Munich in 1970 and joined the band, revolutionizing their sound with his improvisational vocals and captivating stage presence. His work on albums like "Tago Mago" and "Future Days" was highly influential.

After leaving Can in 1973, Suzuki returned to music in the 1980s, forming "Damo Suzuki's Network." This project focused on improvised performances with local musicians in each city he toured. His legacy is immense, inspiring artists across genres from post-punk to electronic music. Sadly, Damo Suzuki passed away in February 2024, but his groundbreaking work continues to shape the music world.
