Hold onto your hat and get ready for one of the most over-the-top rock n' roll bands of all time, hailing from Osaka Japan and weighing in at a combined weight of nearly 300 lbs. - the KING BROTHERS!
The KING BROTHERS are:
Keizo Matsuo: guitar, vox
Jun "Hair Star" Fujimto: drums
Masafumi "Maya" Koyama: guitar, screams
Combining the elements of every vital era of rock n' roll music and then exploding it, the KING BROTHERS approximate the sound of the Germs backing Howlin' Wolf with his hand caught in a garbage disposal. This is very wild music and they take it very seriously. The KING BROTHERS toured the US in 1999 and 2001 and left a trail of blind worshippers in their wake. Their self-titled debut album on Bulb Records is an exercise in lo-fi dementia - it makes Guitar Wolf sound like Belle and Sebastian. The KING BROTHERS have made such a reputation for themselves in their home country as an incredible live act that they earned themselves a recording contract with Toshiba/EMI. Their new album, "In The Red", takes their already insane sound into more dense and twisted territory. The KING BROTHERS are the new face of rock n' roll music.
"The King Brothers are the best rock n' roll band in the world"
