Lo-Fi Noise Rock outfit. Simplistic, fast guitar riffing with LOADS of noise, but not that much feedback. Usage of bongos and various other percussion instrumen
Fast-paced lo-fi Noise Rock from Bavaria, Germany. Noisy, high-pitched guitar, heavy, downtuned bass, bongos and other percussion instead of a drumkit.
Band/artist history
The Edward Kasperl Band was formed in 2004 in Tittmoning/Bavaria/Germany by lead singer/guitarist Edward Kasperl, bongoist C.A. Sinclair and guitarist Der Finstere Imperator. The three-piece soon recorded their groundbreaking debut EP "Tittmoning Vs The World". After the release they fired Imperator to recruit a bassist instead: Fät Tsöäck. In 2005, they recorded their second EP, "EKB Bleibt", which took their music to new extremes having a more complex and cacophonous sound. In mid 2006 EKB released their debut album, "Brother Brain", containing 16 tracks of frantic, fast-paced noise rock with heavy, grinding, noisy (but undistorted)bass. In late 2006, EKB recruited a second percussionist, Bo Riss, who plays things an Indian dholak drum or Tibetan temple cymbals. With Bo, EKB recorded their 2nd full-length album, "Spastische Klanglandschaften", which took an entirely different route than earlier records: Instead of consisting of many short songs, this new album consists of 4 lengthy, improvised numbers. In 2007, EKB completed their new album, Magus (13 songs, 29 mins). Percussionist Bo Riss plays an electronic drum kit on most of the songs, giving them a stronger rhythmic backbone (and C.A. more room for improvisations) than before. But at the same time, the band began branching out, taking on a less riff-driven approach and exploring post-punk, psychedelia and industrial music.
