X-Ray Moon

On my show this month:
This month X-Ray Moon has put together a special programme dedicated to Damo Suzuki, the former lead singer of CAN who recently passed away ... X-Ray Moon looks into the influence that Damo Suzuki, CAN and some of their contemporaries have had on music and musicians from the late 1960s up to the present day.
We are swirled through a maelstrom of experimental, avant-garde, surrealistic and subversive sounds and attitudes. From Damo Suzuki, CAN, Harmonia, Neu!, Faust, Amon Duul II, and Kraftwerk… to post-Punk groups such as P.I.L., Joy Division and Teardrop Explodes… to groups that covered CAN tracks, such as Loop, Jesus and Marychain, and Blixa Bargeld ... to the phenomenal, in their own right, The Velvet Underground.
This is a programme both for those who are Krautrock-curious and for those who have been followers of aka ‘Kosmische Musik’ for quite some time. For, X-Ray Moon plays both tracks that many will have heard before, but he also seems to have trawled either the depths of his own record collection or the inner-most sanctum of the music-net ... or quite possibly both ... and come up with tracks that even the most hardcore lover of all musical Germanic things from the late 60s early 70s is unlikely to have come across before.

Biography:

Music both old and new. My tendency has always been to be attracted to the 'different', the other, the subversive… something that in one way or another challenges authority or orthodoxy and somehow attempts to shape wider society. Whether that be Punk, two-tone, Krautrock, Rai… etc.
In addition to that though I quite simply enjoy discovering the new, the different and the strange. Sounds, voices and atmospheres from around this small globe we call home are what excite me...
Over the years I have lived in many different countries, and wherever I was John Peel was the background, for many years, that aurally lit-up my adventures. He so perfectly reminded us that the quality, importance and worth of something has nothing to do with its 'popularity', and more to do with how it breaks down barriers and makes the complacent feel uncomfortable. How music at its best can be so much more than just a wallpaper-friendly pop song. So, then, eternal thanks to John Peel, who helped mould many of us…
Plus, thanks for listening. It is a great pleasure and joy to bring these shows to you; I hope you enjoy what you hear.
