Review: 'KUHN FU'

-  Label: 'UNIT Records'
-  Genre: 'Rock' -  Release Date: '31st March 2017'-  Catalogue No: 'UTR 4753'

Our Rating:
This multinational band formed in the Netherlands and present for your delectation their second album which, they say, offers a sarcastic view on life ..... not taking itself too seriously".

The music is written by German composer/guitarist Christian Achim Kühn which explains, but does not excuse, the pun of the band's name and album title. The clarinetist is from Israel, and the drummer and bassist are respectively from Serbia and Turkey.   

Someone once quipped that jazz-rock fusion provides the worst of two musical genres and so it proves here for a record in which the striking graphic cover artwork by Viennese illustrator Artur Bodenstein is the highlight.

The eight instrumental tracks feature mercifully brief spoken language inserts in bad English and are an unholy mish-mash of musical ideas.

If nothing else it proves that heavy guitar riffs and woozy clarinet playing are opposites that do not attract.
