Island in the Sun

A full gig review of the Weezer gig of last night to come later, and also some pictures and stuff of my own for various things when I finally have internet in my house!

Meanwhile though, I missed all but the last song of The Kooks' set last night (them crazy London gigs start things at funny timeses) but have seen and interviewed the young whippersnappers before. They are lovely (or at least I can certify loveliness of Hugh and Paul who are the two I interviewed) and hail from Brighton (though their lead singer was once a Brummie) and the youngest is 17. They all went to music college but were in separate bands playing different styles of music, so what comes out from The Kooks on stage is an eclectic mix.

They supported The Dead 60s on their tour and are supporting Weezer currently and will be supporting The Subways in the near future (darn, I thought I'd get that in before they did but they've announced it on their website: the tour will be in Autumn, when The Kooks are also playing their own mini tour). Their first single was Eddie's Gun and their newest one (due out I don't know when but we have it here in the Sugar office) is Sofa Song which is a lovely poppy summer tune that's a bit more rockin' than McFly type stuff. Listen to The Kooks if you like the bands they're supporting and I think The Bees is a good'un too.

I can't find any decent pictures to pull off for you, but go to to have a look see at the ones there and do some reading up.

  1. Is there any news on a Kooks album yet? They were cracking when we saw them supporting the Dead 60's and seemed like a nice bunch of guys.
