Paik (pake) - an old English word meaning a powerful blow to the body, or to pummel. With 10 years out the tailpipe, PAIK continues to pursue their road trip of the cosmos with the release of the 5th full length, Monster of the Absolute, and a 10 year live DVD, entitled Magnesium Fire, both released in summer,2006. The new material finds them at a songwriting high, and exploring fields of radiant, undulating frequencies undiscovered on previous releases. Harkening backwards, they have toured with notables such as Stephen Malkmus, BRMC, Windy&Carl, Subarachnoid Space, and left crowds smiling at CMJ 2004, SXSW 2005, Terrastock 5 2003, Terrastock 6 2006, and the MIT senior steer roast 2006. Countless compilation appearances, a THRASHER MAGAZINE skater of the year DVD score, and split CD with KINSKI, and SURFACE OF ECEON are also to their credit. Its difficult to see into the crystal ball that they have rattling around in the back of their van, but one thing is certain space is deep, and PAIK has a full tank of petrol.
Described as a giant, swirling, maelstrom capable of filling most any venue with lush textured soundscapes, at volumes that let the listener stand breifly in this trio's shoes and feel the truth an honesty from which their sounds emanate. At live performances, an equally engaging light show allows an individual the opportunity to let go of the here and now, and travel somewhere much more soothing, where time ceases to exist. (Myspace)
