No Pan Kissa History
The group was born in 2008 under the impetus of Dominique Messere (vocals) and Didier Van Geyseghem (keyboards). Their desire was to create their own musical
style that included a mix of different musical genres such as “intuitive” rock, jazz, reggae, post-rock and barock’n roll.
Their aim is to leave the musical routine, while proposing a music away from stereotypes and musical standards but which will please the public.
Known for several years already, the structure of several songs already exists and different songs are quickly composed.
Angelo Milone then joined the band on drums. The posts of guitarist and bassist will be ensured by different musicians of passage.
In the wake of its creation, the group goes directly on stage and performs at the Ateliers Rock in Huy. http://y-aaz2.skynetblogs.be/no-pan-kissa/
Other performances were made including a concert at the Fiesta du Rock in Flémalle in 2009. http://www.lavenir.net/cnt/262723
In 2011 and after some changes of musicians the band acquires a certain stability and the line-up is completed by Maxime Hoyoux (guitar) and Mike Fodsey (Bass).
The concerts follow one another, including a stage appearance of some of the group’s musicians during a concert with the Panache Culture group https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Nmzed7xcRI
The band has gained some experience on stage, so it was time to move on to the next step, recording a EP. The group then entered the studio in 2013 and later released its first disc, a EP 4 titles soberly titled NPK.
The group then hosts in 2014 a new bassist, Laurent Da Pra. And in order to further expand his universe and explore new sounds, the group also occasionally hosted a cellist, Aurélie Potty.
The concerts are more and more numerous and No Pan Kissa returns on stage in 2014 at the Atelier Rock in Huy to celebrate the release of his EP called NPK. http://www.lavenir.net/cnt/DMF20140502_00470884
The group also goes back to the scene of the Fiestas du Rock (Flémalle) in June 2014 and continues to perform concerts in 2015 and in early 2016.
In the course of this year 2016, Laurent Da Pra decides to leave the group and is then replaced by Pierre Doffagne. In few weeks, a new set is put in place, concerts resume, and once the line-up is well-honed, the group decides to enter a studio to record his second EP called NPK².
Recorded by Axel Denteneer (DHOLES), this new 4 tracks takes a darker direction, a more raw production well in tune with the times.
Concerning the Live, the group wants to put even more emphasis on power during its services. It is then decided to move to a line-up with two guitarists, rhythm and lead. Maxime Hoyoux leaves the project and after a few months of research, the band integrates Antoine Lejeune (Lead) and Léonard Cristino (rhythm) early 2018.
In the process, No Pan Kissa goes back very quickly on the boards and occurs in particular at the well-known café-concert “Le Central” (Profondeville), establishment with a prestigious scene and well known in Namur.
Other dates will follow as well as the official release of NPK².
