Born in the muck, mire, and Vicodin of northwest Ohio’s Black Swamp region, KRAKOA was the baby of proud papas Charlie Pauken (formerly guitarist for Bowling Green’s short-lived hardcore legends the Straightaways) and Bob Manley (formerly guitarist for long lived Cincinatti metal band Recitivist) when the two discovered they had a mutual love for stoner rock.

Practicing every weekend in Pauken’s third floor studio eventually came to a halt with the installment of a nosy and ignorant Born-Again Christian building manager and increased interpersonnel tensions. Pauken proceeded to go it alone and recorded a short demo that would become the initial Colossus EP, which would eventually get rerecorded in conjunction with The Golden Calf EP. Both of these, with the inclusion of live material from the Ratskins EP would be compiled on Cathal Brugha, a record that has seen three different versions of cover art.

Colossus, which was distributed initially on cassette, was used with the intention of recruiting band members. Among the prospects were Matt Hinkleman of Hubbcap and Mark from the Huron County Creeps before Mike Lupro (formerly drummer for Truman’s Water) stepped in to man the kit for a maximum of two shows which eventually became three. Pauken’s brother, Joe, stepped in to handle bass duties.
