Italian Stoner Grunge.

This is a strange EP I found in my C-Box. Koan from Italy plays some sort of Alternative Stoner Grunge. When I listen this EP, Chopping Machine from Colour Haze comes to mind. In their myspace Koan claimes to be influenced by the following bands and artists:
Nirvana, Melvins, Kyuss, Q.O.T.S.A., Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins, Bauhaus, One Dimensional Man, Tool, Hedge Hog, Helmet, Jesus Lizard, Shellac, Mudhoney, Soundgarden, Unida, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, The Clutch, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Fugazi, Meshuggah, Karp ,Giddy Motors, Uzeda, Sepultura, Pantera, The Who, Jesus & Mary chain, TAD, A Perfect Circle, King Crimson, Genesis, Pavement, Screamin Trees ,Mad Season, Temple Of The Dog, Mother Love Bone,The Fuid, The Wipers, The Cure, The Doors, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Pixies, Sex Pistols, Exploited, Peggio Punk, Negazione, Diaframma, Marlene Kuntz, Elliott Smith, Skin Yard, P.J.Harvey, Massimo Volume, Killing Joke... & more.
It's a lot of names and I can't place all of them in comparing with this EP.
I guess you should listen for youself.
