KUHN FU

In their "paranoid prog-punk-jazz performance", the band KUHN FU of guitarist, composer and master of ceremonies, Christian Kühn, turns everything through the improvisational wolf. Zappa meets cabaret, surf sounds and metal riffs ride the Chattanooga Choo- Choo, while Shakespeare, Brecht and Monty Python are the godfathers.
