Kraut was a New York City punk rock band who formed in 1981. The original members were Davey Gunner (vocals), Doug Holland (guitar/vocals) Don Cowan (bass/vocals), and Johnny Feedback (drums/vocals).
Kraut's very first performance was opening for the The Clash at Bond International Casino in New York on June 11, 1981. While recording their debut album, An Adjustment to Society (produced by Ryk Oakley), they opened for The Professionals at the Channel in Boston. Former Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones became good friends with Kraut and recorded extra guitar tracks on the album. Jones' playing was included on "Kill for Cash", "Sell Out" and "Onward". A video clip for "All Twisted" appeared in rotation on MTV, making Kraut the first independent band to be played on the station. The band went on to release a second album, Whetting the Scythe, and toured the USA.
