Amun-Ramen

4 piece band on the stage, men playing guitar, bass and drums, female vocal/classical guitar

 

Amun was one of the most powerful gods in ancient Egypt, often referred to as the ‘King of the Gods’. When combined with the god Ramen, he’d become even more powerful: a god of all creation, but mainly, creation of noodles.

See, in the fight over who invented spaghetti people tend to forget that noodles are holy foods, that no human could invent. They were sent to Earth by gods who wanted to give people something easy to cook, something that even the mortals could not mess up. And yet, in the history of homo sapiens, there were so many cases of overcooking noodles, serving ragu with thin spaghetti, having ramen with bread… someone even thought that ramen-flavoured Pringles would be a good idea!

The gods didn’t like what the Earthians were doing with their holy food and decided to send Amun-Ramen down to Bristol, to put an end to the culinary heresy. After realizing that the no-Sun conditions are not good for an Egyptian deity, Amun-Ramen decided to possess a human. It turned out that even the greatest human to ever walk the planet was not enough to accommodate the god’s greatness (RIP David Bowie); Amun-Ramen decided to divide his being into four mortals. He now continues creating (mainly music) to save the world.
