Raionbashi & Kutzkelina @ No Fun Fest - The Hook - Brooklyn, May 18th 2007

Raionbashi & Kutzkelina, who I think are from Germany, opened their set with this sort of mellow, atmospheric music, and the whole audience couldn't see the band at all because the dude who was making the noise (who had a rad haircut) was on the floor messing with his equipment. Then... TWANG! He hits a switch and the whole room is blanketed with some beautiful screaming fuzz. Then he turns it off, and it's back to the quiet ambient stuff for a little while. Then... TWANG! and back and forth for a little while, fuzz, quiet, fuzz, quiet. And then she (kutzekelina?) steps up to the mic, blows a whistle and the song is over. The rest of the set consisted of her yodeling into the mic (which was different), over the Raionbashi's noise experiments, and it was great, because it's unlike any other music out there.
