DAMO SUZUKI: « Very soon comes a double CD called « HollyAris »…I mean I’m going to release only doubles in future, except one CD I edited already. It’s nice to have more than two hours of pure instant composed music which will never be performed again. ‘HollyAris’ has two location recorded live. One is in Hollywood another is Paris. As I perform with local sound carriers. CD 1 called Hollywood is performed by sound carriers from Los Angeles and Japanese guitarist Mandog. CD 2 called Paris is performed by sound carriers from France. After they formed a band called FRENCH DOCTORS as they found chemistry between them. And they are recording their first record… »

« ...the Paris CD which is the real surprise of this set. It was recorded only some 14 months later, yet it sounds like a decade has elapsed since the LA-gig. Whereas the latter band played psych- and avantgarderock with the occasional nod in the direction of Can, the music on Paris is much more subtle. With the sole exception of the drummer, all of Damo’s five collaborators use electronic processing tools. Thus Damo’s singing is presented here in a totally new setting for him. The fact that Damo can adapt his singing so effortlessly to this modern context speaks volumes for his artistic vision and his will to communicate with his fellow musicians (which has always been his ultimate concern). More than any other of Damo’s releases, Paris focusses on the search for a collective expression, the communication and understanding across genres and generations. Damo once said that when he goes onstage, he is not so much thinking about the music which he will play but about creating a collective experience with his audience within the moment. The music on Hollyaris bear witness to that attitude. » (XRAYRECORDS, bit.ly/2qaOGED)
