Holger Czukay

was a co-founder, the bass player and engineer of one of the most important bands ever. With Can he experimented in the leftfields of rock and jazz in the early 70's. Their recording and engineering sessions – which mostly took place in Schloss Növerich outside of Cologne – influences musicians to this very day. After Czukay left Can he recorded several LPs under his own name or as part of different projects (f.e. «Bison» today).
