Knalpot will play Sunday 20 September.

Knalpot are Raphael Vanoli (guitar/casio/electronics) and Gerri Jäger (drums). At a push it’d be possible to sqeeze Knalpot into the punkfunkelectro bag, but the seams wouldn’t hold the duo for long. Sounding a lot more organic than other similarly tooled outfits, their music is stuffed with loops, blips and Mulder melodies.


Knalpot means ‘exhaust’ in old Dutch, but its connotations are: noise, pandemonium etc. And that is exactly what Knalpot brings live on stage, but in controlled bursts. Using a keyboard, drums and more guitar effects than even you have, these two guys bring experimental electro/jazz like they have never done anything else before. They claim their sound engineer will be there to make sure no-one gets hurt. Our advice to you is to come and see this fresh duo, but do not forget your earplugs!
