| UNFIT FOR THESE TIMES FOREVER
Gloria has a background in the legendary all-female group of performance-based poets called the Pussy Poets;
Empee went from noisy punk-wave with Lul, through wavy post-postrock with Solbakken, to his current bluesy rock-grooves;
Frank is probably best-known for his fancy surf-riddims in the Treble Spankers, and punk-tight straight-forwardness in Big Paulus.
Musically, Kanipchen-Fit embarks on all kinds of styles, but stays in the neighbourhood of what has been labeled soul-rock,
noise-blues, among many other things. Some even went as far as to call it funky protest music for the twenty-first century.
Inevitably, inadvertently, Kanipchen-Fit generates energy, because the beat takes over and the adrenalin kicks in,
or maybe because they mix the groovy drums with some bassy rock-guitar and two powerful vocals;
it is an energy they themselves find difficult to control.
