Biography

“Garage funk, played by a rock trio”

Adventurous, danceable and cheerful: a performance by The Incredible Stacks is no pre-fab rock show but a happening where intuition and feel show the musical direction. The live set has a structure more similar to what a dance DJ would do than to that of an average Rock band – the beat just goes on and on. The applause will have to wait until the end of the show, there is simply no time for it. By using improvisation to adjust to the audience a performance of The Incredible Stacks never is the same twice and always is full of surprises.

“Garage Funk” is much more raw and pure than the well-known regular funk. There’s nothing extraneous — no pretentious jazzbo solos, no overdubbing, barely any chord changes, and definitely no Fender Rhodes piano or blues changes. Just the jagged interplay of chukka-chukka guitars, a screaming organ, bumping bass, and, of course, stuttering, thundering drums.

On their debut CD “Consider The Incredible Stacks” the band shows a contemporary version of Garage Funk with mixed-in influences of Rock, Powerpop and Jazzdance. This is no collection of instant one-dimensional radio hits but a record where it’s all about grooves, catchy riffs and musical tension.
