RIP Holger Czukay


https://spoonrecords.com/news/holgers-obituary.php


Holger was found dead at his home, the former Can Studio in Weilerswist, yesterday, aged 79. He lost his wife U-She (Ursula Schüring) on 28 July. She had been ill and largely immobile for many years and he had been dedicating much of the last years caring for her.

There will be many obits and reminiscences in the next few days. Suffice to say here that Holger was the twinkling fire at the heart of Can, an imaginator of new sonic worlds, adapting the dry sophistry of the postwar avant garde music he studied under Stockhausen for use in an innovative pop context. A brilliant technician, he made audio gold from the murk of primitive equipment in Can's early days, while developing a hypnotically minimal bass style.

A true European, Holger salvaged wit, humour and artistic integrity out of a childhood that should have left him traumatised: uprooted as a toddler from Danzig at the outbreak of world war two, resettled in a bombed out Berlin. He was a laughing contrarian and artistic adventurer. More than the rest of his band mates, he retained a strong sense of theatre, goofing off like a dadaist. To some extent it was his trickster's desire to push against the grain in Can's later development that finally caused the group to finish as an active unit. From there he salvaged a new career as solo artist and catalyst for others, notably David Sylvian in the mid-80s.

When I first met him in the late 90s, his enthusiasm for the emerging minimal techno – he was collaborating with some of Cologne's Liquid Sky scenesters at the time - was infectious. His final years, living in the cleared-out shell of the old cinema at Weilerswist where so many classic Can albums were recorded, were a quiet coda to all that, focused on U-She and on obsessively reworking his own solo work. He was not really receiving visitors and increasingly shut out the world at the end, and my one regret was not being able to visit the old studio one last time.

Auf Wiedersehen Holger.

* Captain Credible is known for his violently eccentric live performances and arsenal of homemade instruments. Hectic beats fight for attention while aggressive melodies and harmonies spurt like battery acid out of the speakers. Somewhere in the land of IDM break

* Radio 9 is a collective that plays electronic music with real drums, guitar and bass and even some vocals. Think energetic, melodic Krautpop. Varying from hypnotic, mellifluous atmospherics to frenzied postpunk whiteouts, the band frequently improvise live in extended rhythmic bop.
