Damage: David Sylvian and Robert Fripp

David Sylvian (born David Alan Batt in ’58) was lead vocalist and main songwriter in Japan which had some success in the ’70s, reaching worldwide recognition in 1981 with their 5th studio album Tin Drum Since then he’s embarked on a series of fascinating collaborative projects influenced by a variety of musical styles.

Damage is a live recording of their 1993 tour and God’s Monkey is a track from that album.
