How it began. . .
Kinksi started in May of 1998 when Martin decided to put together a band, unlike the pop band he was already in. He had been listening to the German bands Can and Faust. He formed the group KlausKinski with friend Lucy Atkinson and David Weeks. After a year they began to play in local Seattle clubs and shortned their name to Kinksi.
