Get ready for the Definitive Sounds Of A New York Jazz Punk Afro Funk Disco Machine...get ready for KONK! with the ultimate collection - The Magic Force Of Konk 1981-1988! This Limited Edition 3xLP Deluxe Set is a lovingly composed retrospective, showcasing the influential NY bands history.
KONK straddled genres, blending the balls to the wall attitude of punk with the dance your ass off rhythms of the clubs, at home in CBGB’s as they were in Danceteria, KONK took NYC’s supercollider of sounds and melted them down into a hard driving, latin infused flavour all of their own.
The Magic Force Of Konk 1981-1988 is a testament to the bands artistic staying power, the music sounding just as fresh, from the crossover funk grooves of ‘Konk Party’, to the innovative punk funk synth bass of club hit ‘Your Life’, the bands influence indisputably lives on in this beautifully designed package. Looking as good as it sounds, it is sure to please fans of Liquid Liquid, ESG, Pigbag, James Chance, Soul Sonic Force, LCD Soundsystem, or simply those intrigued by the vitality of 1980’s downtown New York City.
This year, FUTURISMO give every discerning music fan the collection their ears have been craving, The Magic Force Of Konk 1981-1988 . Each Limited Edition Deluxe set includes 3x140g ‘Night Fun’ coloured vinyl - where each of the three disks are a different vinyl colour (transparent red with black marble splatter, solid bright yellow and classic black). Included alongside all the original studio recordings by the band are live tracks from CBGB’s plus a disk of DJ mixers, which can be used to mix alongside the original versions of ‘Your Life’ and ‘Konk Party’. It is housed in a wide spined gloss laminated sleeve and contains a 12pg Book featuring photos, flyers and liners by journalist Ezra Gale, plus a Huge Poster and a Digital Download of the tracks.
KONK’s The Magic Force Of Konk 1981-1988 is an essential addition to the collection of any jazz, funk, punk, afro or disco fan! This October, get down to the sound of the New York underground...only while stocks last!
