Bohren & der Club of Gore
Bohren & der Club of Gore is a German ambient/Jazz band from Nordrhein-Westfalen.
The band was founded in 1992 by Thorsten Benning, Morten Gass, Robin Rodenberg and Reiner Henseleit. The band started to play 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". The bands name was at first just Bohren but since they had gotten the urge to play instrumental music from an instrumental band called "Gore" they changed the name into Bohren & der Club of Gore.
In 1996 guitarist Reiner Henseleit left the band and was replaced by Christoph Clöser in 1997, replacing the guitar with a saxophone at the same time and turning the sound even more jazzier at the process. The band has released six full length albums.
Thorsten Benning – drums
Christoph Clöser – saxophone, piano, rhodes
Morten Gass – piano, mellotron, rhodes
Robin Rodenberg – double bass
