Jazz PUNK Psychedelia
Christian Kühn ( Germany )
is the German bandleader who moves like a rat on stage. He has been accused of schizophrenia by the jazz press and is constantly fighting a war against „the invisible jazz wall“. He lives in Berlin, loves Duke Ellington, Shostakovich, Rock n Roll and his red telecaster.
Esat Ekincioglu ( Turkey )
tries to destroy his cheap pressboard bass since 2012. He is a true master of the „Turkish Bass Solo“ and an excellent manager, driver and lamenter about turkish politics.
Ziv Taubenfeld ( Israel )
was born in Karmiel. Improvising on the bass clarinet is his way of being. He searches for the pure primitive that is free from time when leading ‘Full Sun’, a fairly large ensemble based on the Amsterdam impro scene.
Sofia Salvo ( Argentina )
Sofía Salvo is a baritone sax player and improviser from Buenos Aires, Argentina, currently living in Berlin, Germany. Her performances include a strong combination between acoustic noisy sounds and dark introspective melodies.
John Dikeman ( USA )
Is a beast on the tenor sax, some even say he is the reincarnation of Albert Ayler. His ear shattering volume and intensity on the tenor make him a great new asset to KUHN FU. His thick American accent almost make him a parody of an American cowboy who plays free jazz.
George Hadow ( England )
comes from Devon, loves fish & chips and Indian music. He plays loud drums but is a quite person by nature. On the Autobahn touring with Günther the van, you see him looking out the window, headphones on, tapping his fingers. We once asked him, “what music are you listening to?” He replied „not music, it’s a metronome“.
