JANIS GÖRLICH’s kleiner dicker mönch

Kleiner dicker Mönch means “fat little monk”.
The sound of this Trio is a DIRECT translation of the thoughts of a rather fat and short monk into music.
Kleiner Dicker Mönch may be regarded as Bummelzug Explosion’s smaller darker brother. According to Janis, “Bummelzug Explosion is like oasis in the middle of a large desert”, whereas Kleiner Dicker Mönch, “goes far beyond that point. The Trio operates on the dark side of the moon.”
The band’s debut “Bei Nacht” (which translates to: “At Night”) is going to be released in October 2014. It features compositions by Janis, Henrik Olsson, Thelonious Monk and Helfrid Lambert in adition to improvised tunes by a fat little monk.
The lineup is:
Henrik “Thor Oscar” Olsson - guitar & effects Jonas Hauer - accordion & effects Janis Görlich - drums, balafon & glockenspiel
