The Alice Kona Band are a breath of fresh air. Once upon a previous lifetime I used to listen to quite a lot of garage punk but I could never understand why a lot of the instrumentation and vocals had to be distorted beyond recognition.
With AKB’s Jay Adams all the instrumentation is clear, lyrics are audible and the vocals are well produced. Yet, the frantic nature and garage punk ethos are never compromised. Punky yet melodic, the Belfast band will leave you with the ‘Oh oh Oh’ refrain knocking round your head for the rest of the day. Legend.
