A Tel Aviv suburb's answer to Britpop
Kfar Sava band Kerach 9 is often linked to '90s groups Pulp and Suede. But its roots are a bit noisier than that.
“I had a gig as a DJ at a Purim party for the Hanoar Haoved youth movement in Kfar Sava,” says Noam Rotem, singer for the band Kerach 9, describing his first meeting with bass player Roy Hadas and drummer Uri Meiselman. Both were 15 years old at the time. “They put on a spoof based on Zvika Pick songs. I was looking for people to play with and I really liked them.”
