Bohren & der Club of Gore - Midnight Walker - Heidelberg 2000 - Underground Live TV recording


 Bohren & der Club of Gore are a noir jazz band founded in 1992 in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany by Thorsten Benning (drums), Morten Gass (keys), Reiner Henseleit (guitar), and Robin Rodenberg (upright / double bass)_they play a crossover of jazz and ambient, which they self described as an “unholy ambient mixture of slow jazz ballads, Black Sabbath doom and down tuned Autopsy sounds_

Originally, the members of Bohren, who were school friends, started out playing in various hardcore bands such as 7 Inch Boots and Chronical Diarrhoea in 1988_driven by the idea of a more unique style of music, they formed Bohren (German word for drilling) in 1992 to play, as they called it, “doom ridden jazz music”_in 1993 the band released a 7-inch EP for Suggestion Records_1993 also saw the band expand their name to Bohren & der Club of Gore, as a link to the Dutch instrumental band Gore, which inspired Bohren to play instrumental music_1994 followed the longplayers Gore Motel and the double set Midnight Radio (1995), both on Epistrophy Records, where Bohren introduced its musical vision between slow jazz- ballads and doom-guitars_



Henseleit left the band in 1996 and was replaced by Christoph Clöser, a Cologne-based composer and musician in 1997, replacing the guitar with a saxophone at the same time_
