Right now there are two types of people who populate the live Irish music scene – those who are fans of King Kong Company and those who haven’t seen them yet.
The band headlined The Cosby Stage on Saturday night at Electric Picnic 2016 and they tore the place asunder. There were as many people dancing outside the tent in the rain as there were ecstatic head-the-balls bouncing around inside the packed arena. Two weeks later Pure M Magazine handed King Kong Company the award for “Best Live Act 2016”. The band have been having an extremley good year and it’s set to continue.
This autumn the King Kong Crew will be dealing out their dirty-dubby-electro-rock in venues around the country, with a special “End of Festival Season Session” in The Academy Dublin on September 30th. This band likes to party and on the tail-end of the best year they’ve ever had, KKC have plenty to celebrate. The Academy show is a gig not to be missed.
Donkey Jaw is the next release from the bands critically acclaimed debut album. Although this track isn’t likely to receive much mainstream airplay (it has some adult themes), it’s become the standout track for KKC fans. Both track and video take a tongue-in-cheek look at buzzer culture, providing a stark and familiar warning to those that over indulge in their social lubricant of choice. The video sees Boxhead (King Kong Company’s onstage dancer and crowd fluffer) power through The Fear to rip Saturday night a new one!
Killer Rabbit Productions, responsible for the video for Scarity Dan (Nialler9’s Video of the Week, Pure M Magazine Video of the Year Nomination), have taken up camera duties again for a video as quirkily dark as it is entertaining. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears pricked, King KongCompany are ready to roar.
