Well I think their cool, so I hope that doesn’t make it ‘dad music’ …
I was introduced to the music of Kraan by a good friend back in the 70s. The double live album, Kraan Live (74-ish) in Germany, is a favourite of mine, the rhythmic interplay between bass, drums and guitar just weaves itself around my musical soul.
The band are still playing, mostly in europe, I’m not sure if they’ve ever been over to the UK. Would be great if they did.
Helmut Hattler, bassist, has engaged in numerous solo projects from the 90s onwards. Here’s a sample of his solo work, with Torsten De Winkel on Guitar, Fola Dada: vocals, Oli Rubow:drums, and Helmut Hattler: Bass.
