PAKS is a trio from Basel consisting of Michael Kunkel on Bass, Vocals, Saxophone and diverse instruments and treatments, Lukas Dreier on Drums, Percussion and Backing Vocals and Wanja Aloe on
Guitar, Synth. They are famous for their infamous, loud and crazy gigs with various lengths of songs and sometimes disuised (human) Chicken in the dancing pit. On their records the band is joined
by Producer and loose member of the band Daniel Steiner. With their diverse Backgrounds as Music Professors in new music and classical theory combinated with the oenologist, this band has
everything nobody needs but everybody thrives for in a Punk Band.
"nincsen semmi" - There is nothing - in Paks, the small town in Hungary from which the band borrowed their name, only one huge nuclear power station. A momentum of abdurdity, stupid force and probably a nuclear disaster is near of it... The band sings in German, Hungarian and English and you will probably find yourself dancing to it and ask yourself how you'd got there.
