On the street Commander Keen are just a couple of guys and a girl - three lovely, nice people not that much different from you and me, but put them on a stage with some electricity and a collection of instruments and you get more power than the A-team! They are on first name terms with most noise control staff.
Ever since fate deemed it fit to bring together Jake Banzai, kiD sNArE and J-Axis they have wanted nothing more than to play music together. There are several rumours circulating the mammoth sound that is Commander Keen which are in fact true: J-Axis has recently had a colostomy bag fitted to make extra time for playing bass, kiD sNArE continues to believe she is the forgotten fifth teenage mutant ninja turtle, and Jake Banzai is only allowed out of his straight-jacket for gigs and finger painting.
Despite their issues they have managed to find salvation in the alternative rock/melodic punk sound they produce. After playing all around Auckland and creating a loyal fan base Commander Keen are beginning a mission to infect the world with their unique sound of melodic vocals, surging guitars, thumping bass lines and driving, hard-hitting drum beats.
