Copy Haho // Moon Unit // Kuda @ The Tunnels!

Thursday night was the night that started a 3 day bender but what a start it was. First up on an ecclectic bill was local mc Kuda, bringing the hip hop vibes. With two dj's & two mc's I guess it couldn't really be that bad. And it wasnt. Mixing some real dj skills with good raps does help. I was suprised by how good the lads were, stupid considering its Kuda, the guys lives and breathes what he does and it comes through in the quality of his music.


Next on the bill was Nackt Insecten re incarnate as a a 3 piece outfit, MOON UNIT! Well nae really, its a new venture with the Nackt man on guitar, Andreas on keyboard / effects & Pete on drums. It was a rapid departure from the sonic noise fest I was expecting and instead the guys fell into a sonically melodic free jam with some awesome riffing from Ruaraidh and beautiful lighting drums. Music to let your mind wander free, which was easy after the 4th pint! Was really impressed though and hoping to collaborate with the Moon Unit guys on some sonic / visual collaborations in April!


The headliners / organisers for the evening were local lads COPY HAHO. Individually they are true masters of their instruments so I was expecting good things from the lads. Sadly by this point the pints had kicked in and I wasn't able to keep up other than bobbing my head and enjoying some guitar reminiscent of Dinosaur Jnr! Anyway you can see the lads on Wednesday in Munich as they make their way across mainland Europe supporting Los Campesinos!
