Description
Official reissue of Kenneth Higney's 1980 private press 45rpm single. Compared to "Attic Demonstration," the recordings are much more polished. Synthesizers and "pop sensibility" have found their way into Higney's music, and the more I listen to it, I'm convinced this could have somehow taken the world by storm in some sort of post-No Wave context. Don't get me wrong, this is still incredibly strange stuff, with Higney triple tracking his vocals in different registers. "Funky Kinky" is an especially unique come-on to a lady and "I Wanna Be The King" is an "ode or tribute, whatever you'd like to call it, to the NYC punk scene of Max's Kansas City and CBGB's in general and Johnny Thunders (the "King") in particular," according to the artist. "I wanna be the king, I wanna play guitar. I hate the sissy music of John Den-var." :
