To this day, Damo Suzuki continues to tour the world, playing improvised sets with one-off ensembles of local musicians as he goes. On this Berlin date in 2011, his Sound Carriers include Ilpo Väisänen of Pan Sonic and Dirk Dresselhaus of Schneider™, among other remarkable types. Live At Marie-Antoinette is a double LP, released by Play Loud!
6/10 Mr Pearls Brain Customer review, 9th May 2017
The mixing statement boils down to "we hadn't rehearsed, we couldn't hear each other, it's a miracle there's anything worth hearing at all." The line up of instruments is baritone guitar, electronics, percussion and electric rake, whatever that sounds like. There is not a lot of mid-range there, and a lot of the time the music degenerates into noise. Damo does his vocalising thing and he's pretty high in the mix which makes the others sound even more like noise. The effect is exacerbated by the fact that the pressing is of necessity a bit quiet, due to the half hour plus track lengths. You have to crank it up, and the surface noise contributes further. Don't get me wrong, I like noise, but I like Can too, and I want this to sound a bit like Can. And it doesn't, which is a bit of a disappointment. A hard record to like.
