Long Out Of Print Vinyl Reissue!
Featuring "Always Where I Need To Be" & "Shine On"!

Long out of print but now available on vinyl again! The second album from The Kooks, 'Konk' was recorded over a six week period in 2007 in Ray Davies' Konk Studios in north London, plus a week at Los Angeles' Sound Factory. The sessions once again united the group with esteemed producer Tony Hoffer (Beck/Air/The Fratellis). 'Konk' features twelve tracks.

"The Kooks' debut album, Inside In/Inside Out, was a sleeper success story, going on to sell a whopping two million copies. It was a fabulous set, but their follow-up, Konk, wipes the floor with it. The title takes its name from Ray Davies' studio, where the quartet recorded most of the set. This direct connection to Britain's past obviously inspired the band to new heights, because the Kooks and this album are positively electrifying. Across a dozen songs, the quartet explores pop and rock in all their glory, with every number set apart from its neighbor in sound and feel. The Kooks wanted each song to be 'its own little world,' and they've succeeded brilliantly... The album sounds phenomenal, with producer Tony Hoffer giving the entire set a warm glow that heightens the band's retro elements. That glow turns luminous on 'One Last Time,' an acoustic-styled ballad with all the majesty of Green Day's 'Good Riddance (Time of Your Life),' and burns just as brightly on the sway-along 'Stormy Weather.' Everything about this album shouts masterpiece, a set that will thrill listeners for years, nay decades, to come." - Jo-Ann Greene,
