KLING KLONG

Postmodern jazz from Hamburg and Barcelona.
CD production at Syrinx Studio

KLING KLONG was founded in the early 80s in Marburg, Hessen. The five musicians of KLING KLONG started experimenting with rhythms, melodies and sounds. They were strongly influenced by the New York no-wave scene around the Lounge Lizzards and Arto Lindsay, as well as by singer Neneh Cherry's British band Rip Ric and Panic.

The KLING KLONG mix of alternative rock and freely improvised jazz was enthusiastically celebrated in clubs and at festivals. In 1983, the band finally released their first album: "Lieben Sie Ihren Kühlschrank" (Snowball Records) and toured extensively through Germany, Italy and to London.

Since 2018, after more than three decades, KLING KLONG has been reunited. The band plays more rhythmically than before, with bold melodies and improvisations. There is also a new element: the voice of writer and author Alexander Kluge. Fragments of interviews that Stephan Lamby conducted with him are used rhythmically - like another instrument.

In June, KLING KLONG produced a new album with a new sound at Syrinx Studios in Hamburg: "Jeder Mensch ein Sender". At the end of the production there was a party at Syrinx with a KLING KLONG live concert. The title song of the new album is available here as a live video.
