Berlin-based guitarist Kristof Hahn, who has played with the likes of Alex Chilton, Tav Falco, and Chris Spedding and his most infamous role of being the lap steel guitarist for the newly reformed Swans in 2009 alongside Gira, Puleo, Westberg, Pravdica, Harris and now Wallfisch made him an irreplaceable component in the new lineup. Let's not forget to mention his own projects Les Homme Sauvages (with fellow countrywoman Viola Limpet) and more recently Sultans of Gedankenbrain (more recently referred to as Sultans of Sex). Kristof is an avant-garde musician with deeply rooted elegance and an expert in all things cool. Let's not forget his immense propensity for being multilingual, in speaking in the French, German and English languages and being an overall man of class. As a composer Hahn specializes in everything from writing pop to immense and layered compositions. His solo album on Erototox Decodings entitled "Solo Etudes" (ETD0027) leads one into other areas of Hahn's talents. Check it out now.
