Edmonton based psychedelic noise rockers Krang are looking forward to playing a show at Henotic with a reunited Endangered Ape, Fist City, Bikeland and the Amber Waves, March 6.
They have just released their new CD ‘It Came From Planet D’ which is full of  psychedelic chaos complete with drum solos and tripped out guitar solos.Krang plays Henotic this week. Photo by Krang
 They will be recording their first seven inch single with Mammoth Cave Records, which means they will have to  tweak their sound just a little.
”We don’t have a lot of low, shorter songs, most of them are over five minutes long. But we’ll still be able to be erratic and improvisational,” said Parker Thiessen, who was just playing Lethbridge with another band, Zebrapulse. It this band he plays  clarinet and is responsible for  most of the spacey, weird and just plain strange sounds  in the band’s music created by a variety of electronic sequencers and  mixers.
“We feel like we’re Hawkwind meets Black Sabbath,” he described adding the core of the band, Thiessen and drummer Jared Majeski,  played together years ago as the Two Man Electrical band and they slowly added members. Most recently, adding  Dean ‘The Ram’ Watson  to the band five short months ago has really helped flush out and structure the band’s sound.
“I’ve played with him in other bands. He’s one of the better guitarists I know,” he praised.
“He adds a lot more. It’s very psychedelic  and experimental. It’s a lot easier to get lost in the music,” he said adding the new CD is a good representation of the band’s sound.
“If we feel we can play a 12 minute song, we will. You will be hearing the music from the CD, but there will be extra and it will be a hell of a lot louder,” he continued adding he is looking forward to seeing Endangered Ape back.
“We played with them in Edmonton, so I’m pretty stoked to see that.”
There is a $10 cover for the show which begins at 9:30 p.m.
