"KaTaTak" is the 4th studio album by the US-born and Germany-based avant-rock-fusion formation known as ALEX'S HAND.
No overall concept this time. Just sort of story oriented. The first piece "Waterfalls" is about paranoia and sort of an homage to Thomas Pynchon's novel "Gravity's Rainbow". The second piece "Epic" is sort of a musical experiment with richety robot style jazz. The third piece "Ghost Peppers" is about someone eating a ghost pepper and being possessed by the devil...
