Banbury Park Records (The Silver Hearts) is proud to announce the signing of The Kiss & Tells, and album release.
Born amidst the din of General Electric and the smoke stacks of local industry, The Kiss and Tells call to mind a band out of time and place. A time when people played from their guts on real instruments and without vocal pitch shifters. A place where bands played high school proms and secret engagements known only to the in-the-know.
Barely out of diapers, The Kiss and Tells have already built a rabid following of dance party R n' B punk soul hard lounge-core enthusiasts. The band features the astonishing powerhouse voice of Kait Do-it with devilish accomplice Wyatt 'Red Squirrel' Burton on stringed things and vocals. The rhythm section features Jenny G-Spot on the very low end of love and the triumphant invading blows of Genghis Kom on war machine. Rounding out the group is Charnobyl and his uncompromising nuclear assault on keys and trumpet. The Kiss and Tells are looking forward to releasing their debut album "Love School" on Banbury Park Records late summer/early fall.
Love School, is a collection of 12 songs inspired by the days of chaperoned heavy petting, 6/8 slow dances and rhythm and blues cookers. In addition to Love School?s 9 original tracks, The Kiss & Tells treat us to four fresh re-workings of tunes made famous by Ike & Tina Turner (Fool In Love), Desmond Dekker & The Aces (Tips Of My Fingers), Stranger &Patsy (When I Call Your Name) and Ruth Brown (Mama..).
