Thanks to the wonders of GoPro technology, you can now glimpse a recording of Klaut recording ‘Primrose and Blue’ from the New Kite EP. It was all recorded in one take, apart from the vocals which were added later.
Our first proper EP, ‘New Kite’ is now available on Bandcamp (free or pay what you like for a limited time only). It’s also available to buy from iTunes and to stream on Spotify and Soundcloud as well as a few other places. It’s a studio recording but it’s quite faithful to our semi-improvised live sound and is sure to be well-received in all the colour supplements. As well as the usual guitars, drums, bass and synths it features delightful percussion, unhinged shouting, some surprisingly tuneful whistling – and it all culminates in a really irate poem performed by guest vocalist Ian Smith from the Fairfield and Howley Neighbourhood Project, who rails against the evils of gentrification.
Our first gig of 2017 is on Friday 13th Jan at the Auction Rooms in Warrington. What could possibly go wrong? Also featured are Hello Mabel, Danxia and Gout.
This is probably going to be our last gig for a while, as we’re heading to the studio to work on our first proper recordings.

Klaut will be supporting Fleetwood’s finest space/psychedelic rock band Earthling Society for a one-off gig in Blackpool on 10 September 2016 at The Layton.
Have a listen to this, their incredible reinterpretation of Alice Coltraine’s ‘Journey in Satchidananda’…

Really looking forward to playing our first Liverpool gig as part of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon this Sunday. We’re on stage D (Netherfield Road South) at 10:13am to be precise. Yes that’s AM not PM… so alarm clocks, porridge oats, noise etc.
KLAUTmd played three short improvised sets as part of the Museums at Night event at Warrington Museum & Art Gallery on Friday 13th May. To prepare visitors for spooky live action tour of the Museum by a group of local actors, we wore capes and unleashed some unsettling and unpleasant noises upon a bemused audience to accompany a short film made up of excerpts from the making of The Exorcist (1973). Here’s a film of one of the performances…
