Guitar & organ driven pop songs played to Jamaican ska rhythms. A blend of The Specials, Elvis Costello & The Slackers.

Fronted by King Kong Girio, Canada's King Kong 4 have dedicated themselves to recording ska music.

Each of them has done their time working with other bands (King Apparatus, Prince Perry, Lo & the Magnetics) and they bring these experiences together for this project.

In the years 2017 and 2018, the King Kong 4 put out five mini-EPs. Here, available for the first time on a physical format, they are releasing this body of work in a single volume.

Lovingly recorded in the subterranean depths of The Slow Cooker, King Kong Girio's laboratory of sound and composition in Toronto, Canada.

Organ/ guitar driven ska music wedged uncomfortably between early Elvis Costello and the second Specials' album.

Toss in a dose of Joe Jackson and indie darlings Spoon, and you've got a sense of how catchy this collection truly is.

For fans of Elvis Costello, The Specials, Joe Jackson and The Slackers.
