Biography

Kumm are a Romanian alternative rock band from Cluj. The band is composed of Eugen Nutescu (lead vocal, guitar), Iordache (saxophones), Kovacs Andras (piano, Rhodes piano, synthesisers), Utu Pascu (bass) and John Ciurea (drums). Since 1998, the band have released five studio albums.

Kumm’s debut album “Moonsweat March” appeared in 2000 at Soft Records. It was well received, especially in the art-rock and prog-rock communities. With the second album, “Confuzz” (2002 - Soft Records), and new lead singer Dan Byron, the band definitely crossed the line into alternative rock territory. “Angels & Clowns”(2005) was the band’s first release on the Italian label Cramps Records, and found the band experimenting with electronics and baritone sax. The album’s release was followed by two Italian tours.

In 2005 Kumm attempted their first tour of Germany, and met their current manager Anja Strub, who went on to organize the band’s next European tours. Later that year, singer Dan Byron left the band.

Kumm started rehearsing with singer Catalin Mocan ( formerly of Persona) and composed the material for their fourth album, which was released in 2006. “Different Parties”, the band’s most adventurous and daring album to date, mixed Mocan’s soaring vocals with brutal guitar and saxophone riffs and lushly arranged strings and woodwinds. In 2007, Kumm celebrated their first ten years with a concert at the Bucharest National Opera House, amongst their former band mates and Romania’s most interesting rock bands (Timpuri Noi, Luna Amara, ZOB, Travka, The Mood). As a friendly gesture, each one of them played one song by Kumm.

    am şi eu o intrebare, întrebare de bun simt, ca asa e la noi, la tara , suntem nespoiţi şi simpli : la ce mai trăbă trupe din aştea, gen kumm, urma, etc. , toate flegmăturile astea netalentoase si care fac gură, ca muzica bună, că etc. respondenţii rog sa scrie la adresa Mitică Mărar, str. Coclau'Nou, nr.24 B, Ciomăgeni, că nu am năt numa decît cînd merg la tîrg la caracal.
