Japanische Kampfhörspiele (JaKa) is a german Grindcore band with six members. The band was founded in 1998. Klaus Nicodem moved to Krefeld in 1998 to study towards the serious side of life. In his student hostel’s kitchen he met Christof Kather and both started celebrating some sort of war-coverage on Christof’s whacked 8-track recorder. This started the madness. They cobble together something one might call metal, but the results sound as distraught as independent due to the fact that Christof only consumed jazz, easy listening.
