Killer Clan of F.U.N.

And after a quiet year Killer Clan of F.U.N. finally presented new material this week. It’s the song “Hocus Pocus” which was released on Tuesday, with a somewhat different sound than before, but still with some great rock’n’roll as their cornerstone. They say that, during their “pause”, they have recorded 15 new songs, which will be released over the year. Here’s “Hocus Pocus”.

Killer Clan of F.U.N. – “The World of Voodoo”

The World of Voodoo

After I wrote about Killer Clan of F.U.N.’s debut album in 2009, I came in contact with the band, and we started talking about a collaboration, which also was started soon thereafter. A little more than two years later we could present the band’s second album in the beginning of this Autumn, through my label Blindmen.

As it’s Christmas time the band wanted the entire album to be available for free download, and since the journey started, in a way, here on Meadowmusic, I thought it would be a good place to announce it in a post here. I have added three songs here below and if you’d like to listen and download the entire album you can visit Killer Clan of F.U.N.’s Bandcamp page.

I think it’s a wonderful album and also a fascinating journey to be a part of. They are a hard working rock band who have played at all possible and impossible scenes during the last two years. There’s an unstoppable and positive energy within this band that sometimes amazes me. It doesn’t seem to matter if they are playing a large venue or if they are playing on a small stage in front of a few visitors in pouring rain; it’s always 100% energy and focus. Well, I guess that’s what rock’n’roll really is about, a kind of joy of life through the music and a strong wish to share it with others.

“The World of Voodoo” is an album where the band pushes their rock frontiers even further. If the debut album mostly was about straight classic hard rock, now more influences have started to show themselves more clearly. One of them is a strong punk vibe you can hear in several songs, which goes hand in hand with the singer Maniac’s expression and lyrics. All in all it’s a great varied rock’n’roll adventure which I hope you will enjoy.

The band experienced a setback some week ago as the drummer Big Boned Barabas left the band, and they are now searching for a new drummer who can join them on tour next year.

To follow Killer Clan of F.U.N. you can visit their site or their Facebook page. The album is also available on Spotify.

Killer Clan of F.U.N.

I have been waiting quite a while now for the debut album from Killer Clan of F.U.N. Some time ago I listened to a couple of demo tracks that sounded interesting, but it was hard to say in which direction they were going. So, finally, a week ago, after waiting more than a year, I finally got to listen to the album. And it was a complete surprise to me.

Their road had taken them to an album that was full of vibrating rock’n’roll, right out to it’s fingertips. A guitar riff party that made me jump up and down and join Maniac Daniels, screaming and singing. The references is  hailing down over me, like for example Motley Crue, Accept, Guns’n’Roses, Aerosmith, Rainbow, AC/DC, The Rolling Stones and many others. Yet they don’t sound like anyone else.

Maniac launches like a loose Scud missile and sometimes makes me feel that  Beastie Boys finally has taken over a hard rock band. Bedlam sprays his guitars all over and distinctivly hammers rock’n’roll into my soul. Guitars that leans forwards in their energy and almost threaten to nuke my room. At the same time the voice of the blues echoes within the music, through the feeling and with the help from Maniac’s harmonica.

Luckily they give me some breathing space now and then, as sparkling acoustic guitars appears, Maniac shows a surprisingly broad register and everything is just glued together.
