The Kokomo Kings: Fighting Fire With Gasoline (CD)

(Rhythm Bomb) 12 tracks - digisleeve

The Swedish-Danish quartet has built up a very large and steadily growing fan base within a very short time. Already with "Artificial Natural" and "Too Good To Stay Away From" the musicians were enthusiastic, and even though the charismatic founding member HARMONICA SAM doesn't belong to the permanent line-up anymore, the band still literally tears down every hut at their regular shows all over Europe.

Therefore the success formula - namely a perfectly rounded, groovy mix of Low Down Boogie, Rock'n'Roll and Blues in the 30's vintage sound - is only slightly varied on "Fighting Fire With Gasoline". The album title aptly describes the effect of the twelve new Scandinavian songs, all written and produced by bassist MAGNUS LANGHAMMAR.

The KOKOMO KINGS are young, sexy, hip and urban blues, mixing traditional genre storytelling with contemporary irony. In 2018 they were named "Band of the year" by the British radio show "Blues Lounge" on Bradley Stoke Radio, while in the same year they were nominated as "best rockabilly band" at the Ameripolitan Music Awards.  Guitarist RONNI BUSACK-BOYSEN was named "Danish Blues artist of the year" in 2013. The KOKOMO KINGS free the blues from belly, beard and glasses.

"The Kokomo Kings"

The Kokomo Kings

Take a big bucket of unpolished Mississippi juke joint boogie and blend it with another bucket of laid back down home blues. Add a teacup of swamp pop, a tablespoon of hillbilly and a pound of profane, ecstatic gospel and you´ll have the Kokomo Kings. This ain´t Nothing but primitive, groovy Saturday-night music made for dancing.

The band is a collaboration of some of Swedens and Denmarks absolute top players. After years of backing a long list of international blues artists like James Harman, Mud Morganfield, Big Jack Johnson, Lazy Lester, Louisiana Red, John Primer, Big Joe Louis, Keith Dunn, Rusty Zinn and so on, and playing with a number of Scandinavian bands like The Instigators, The Domestic Bumblebees, Paul & The Blue Delivery, Peter Nande Band and many others, they decided to start a new band and do their own thing.

They got together in the spring of 2012 to record the debut 45rpm vinyl-single “Artificial Natural”. It took of good, and many said it was among the best sounding recording for years! In October 2013 they released the full length album “Artificial Natural” that received great rewievs. Many Blues- and Rock´n´Roll fans claimed that it was the first time for many years that they listened to a blues album from the first song to the last, and just loved every second of it!

In October 2015 the italian record Company "Turkish Records" released their new fishing-song "The River Turned to Steam" on vinyl. In 2016 harmonica sam decided to cut down on music. instead martin abrahamsson joined the band on vocals and guitar. sam will continue to perform with the band on special occations. In the spring of 2017 Rhythm Bomb Records released their 2nd album "Too good to stay away from". The Ameripolitan Music Awards in Memphis nominated the Kokomo Kings as the best rockabilly band of 2018.
