FINALLY Introducing...Kong

I know that any post I put up here isn't going to do justice. So here goes.

Kong are close to, if not THE best live act in the UK right now. FACT.

I have seen them play every time they have been in London since they did A Fistful of Fandango last year. FACT.

On that bill were headliners Future Of The Left, another of my favourite UK acts (in fact vying with That Fucking Tank! and Kong for that title), and currently Kong (and Oceansize, but we wont mention too much about that) bassist Steve Hodson is playing with them. FACT.

Kong are scary, drunken, and above all fun. Its like watching the Jesus Lizard, Fugazi and Shellac in a whiskey-fuelled three-way - not that that would necessarily be fun... FACT.

Nothing more shall be said for the time being. Just watch the below clips, then get to the Old Blue Last on Aug 18. If you dont, then fuck off. FACT.
