"smash the drum-bucket-afro kit and play the guitar
5 days in the boomy room... with my favorite pet"
SchnAAk play unique Experimental Noiserock – with a weird blend of funny Jazz-licks, strange African rhythms and a tight Hardcore-energy… two-piece-madness somewhere between Hella, Captain Beefheart, Battles and Sun Ra.
It was very obvious that the first SchnAAk-EP has to be recorded live in front of an audience, so they decided to record two Berlin-shows on tape. So they did… and “women on ships are bad luck” is the result. For the first time with some vocals and sound-manipulations, but still incredibly rough and direct.

(Ex-Giddy Motors, for those of you to whom that means something.)
Amazingly complicated but still catchy. I'd call it math rock but it has way too much guts and spit for that; it's precise but also filthy. The vocals are completely unhinged. I love this band. Really hoping they come to the US on tour sometime soon. Mike Gintz

Oufff! Une musique insidieuse qui s'infiltre dans les sens les abreuvant d'abord, puis les pervertissant jusqu'à s'y noyer. À l'écoute de cet album, tel l'expression qui dit:''Qui meurt par noyade est rassasié d'eau'', l'hébétude après l'asphyxie fait graduellement place à la sérénité liée à la complétude sensorielle. Yééééé! Maison Planàterre
