KONK ‘The Magic Force Of Konk 1981-1988’ Deluxe 3xLP Pre-order NOW!

Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

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 NYC bands history.

Emerging during a period marked by the post-punk, new wave, disco and early hip-hop scenes, KONK straddled genres, blending the balls to the wall attitude of punk with the dance your ass off rhythms of the clubs, an eclectic approach that resonated throughout the city. Equally at home in rock clubs such as CBGB’s as they were in Danceteria and Paradise Garage, 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 now as it did back then, 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, this 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.
