I'm a sucker for anyone who can make me laugh. This definitely extends to bands as well. Today here are two bands beginning with 'K' who have suckered me good and proper!
Here are Kenickie being deadpan:
I've probably mentioned before that I'm a fan of Kenickie. One of my favourite Kenickie recordings is the hidden track on their debut album At The Club. Known as 'Montrose Gimps It Up For Charity', it's clearly largely improvised by bassist Emmy-Kate Montrose. As she mentions the milk bar, scaffolding and the fishnet section, the rest of the band piss themselves laughing in the background. Obviously I enjoy their pre-prepared songs too, but the humour is so infectious on this track!
Kenickie - Montrose Gimps It Up For Charity mp3 (available for 7 days)
Today, I spent a lot of time chuckling as I listened to my mp3 player. This was mostly down to KateGoes. I can't get enough of this band at the moment! They're so inventive and funny and make brilliant music! The Tamagotchi freak-out in this song is especially fantastic...
KateGoes - Yo-Yo mp3 (available for 7 days)
Please, please rush over to the KateGoes myspace page to listen to the songs up there (particularly Walking The Dog) then read the blog entry that tells you how to buy KateGoes music. I'm determined that everyone I've ever known should hear this band!
I'm surprised to see how hard it is to find a large online outlet where you can buy Kenickie albums in a tangible form, but you can buy them in download form from here. Hoorah!
P.S. Hey baby, you're gorgeous. Do you fancy accompanying me to the milk bar?
Airdate: Idris Elba: The King of Speed - Luther star takes to the track in a three part motoring series, on Discovery.
