bullfrog/kid koala 7"
- Thought some of the fine folks on The Wire list would appreciate knowing
about this new single. It's available in the USA only through mailorder via
Aquarius, although if you are in the UK the Rough Trade shops are supposed
to be getting some too. Cheers.
BULLFROG with KID KOALA 7" 4.50
While turntablist whiz Kid Koala is still working on his full length
solo record, here's something to tide us fans over: the debut 7" from Kid
Koala's band Bullfrog, a five piece group wherein Kid Koala does scratching
duties. Reportedly Bullfrog cut a plate of original vocals, then during the
recording, Kid K scratched them right into the mix! The effect is
surrealistic, subtle and very very loopy, a perfect foil for the music, two
tracks of which sound like a combination of turntablist fun mixed up with
rare-groove/sweet-soul from the seventies. Plus, there's a third track
that's all Kid K, doing more of what you've come to know and love on his
now completely-unavailable "Scratchcratchratchatch" cassette. We firmly
believe Kid Koala is one of the artists that is going to take turntablism
into the Future; he combines a storyteller's ear with a songwriter's sense
of compostition and of course turntablist chops that make lesser DJ's turn
Due to Kid Koala's kindness and loyalty, Aquarius is the ONLY STORE IN
THE ENTIRE COUNTRY to carry this very limited single. Take a listen, you
won't be disappointed.
