Check out this cool new record from King Kong 4. There are so many things I like about this. One is that they are called King Kong 4. I also like that their sound is “wedged uncomfortably between early Elvis Costello and the Specials first album” – as one of the Kongsters described. He’s right, by Jove. The dudes have a FB page and they’re on Bandcamp. The guitar playing is especially notable and the combo rocks. Really solid release, hot off the presses. Two paws up!
Here be they:
Fittingly, I start my set of paw-selected SKA music with an ode to SKA! UK’s marvelous Dub City Rockers lay it down, as Chris Murray – longtime champion of ska music and pioneer of acoustic solo ska – sings the praises of ska. What is for a ska doggie not to love?
UPDATE: This track is no longer available here! I’m leaving this post up so you’s can goog it! Woof!
Radio Noise’s kick ass punky ska number, “Save All Your Sadness For Me” has more valuable relationship advice stuffed into a few hot minutes than you might spend thousands of dollars and hours on in a fancy therapy office. Quality post-modern neurosis with a catchy chorus and some really funny lines.
Two paws up.
