And now… Pirates, Thugs, and Thieves


As the world becomes more familiar with the band Kokos, many still don't appreciate the sheer scale of success the band has achieved. The band has released 3 discs in 2007 alone. Their tracks are addictive, fun, and get liseners heart pumping.

It's this buzz of attention, which inspired Kokos to record their latest album ‘Pirates, Thugs, and Thieves’. Recorded, mixed and mastered in two sessions by Doug Fury at FF Studios.

"We recorded 18 songs in one day which was pretty hard on our drummer Brian." -Razor (guitarist). "We make upbeat music that people can party to… It's not depressing and it’s not confusing", deadpans Razor, "It's Dirty, it's Original, it's Rock and Roll… We capture what we sound like Live by recording Live. We keep it simple and non-fabricated."


After many months of honing the Kokos moral, the band is ready to take their new material out on the road to a wider audience: "I really think that Kokos is still best enjoyed in a live setting." Enthuses Brain (Drummer). Summing up the unpretentious approach that has resonated with the residents.

With back-to-back great tunes, Life living lyrics and organic, yet crafted production, expect "Pirates, Thugs, and Thieves" to become a true Rock and Roll classic.


-----------------------------------------------------------


From the first few notes of Toby’s trumpet, answered by a phrase from Razor’s guitar, you get the feeling you’re in for something special. By the time the rest of the band comes crashing in on opener “Art Gallery Steps” it’s confirmed ; Kokos and Friends’ long-awaited new album ‘Pirates, Thugs and Thieves’ has arrived and it’s a magnificent, screaming great beast of an album. All those lucky enough to have caught the band live over the past year of so will attest to the sheer power and excitement they generate. That the band has managed to capture so much of that incredible spirit within these grooves is simply stunning. Recorded in one long day in September of last year, ‘Pirates, Thugs and Thieves’ is a perfect summation of where the band is right now.
Although several of these tunes have appeared on previous Kokos’ releases, the band has captured truly definitive versions of these songs. All the live classics are here, and while the sound of the recording itself has a clarity and brightness missing from their earlier recorded work, it’s the inspired performances of the band that really makes this album a classic. Musical highlights abound; Rob (Maximo) Paccagnan’s propulsive basslines on “General Bacardi” and “24oz Flu”, Brian Turner’s punishingly authoritative drums on “Bike Thief” and “Day Trip”, Craig Adams’ grooving percussion on “Art Gallery Steps” and “Some People”, and Razor Buck’s dynamic leads and funky riffs on “Klepto” and “Autumn Dreams”. On top of everything you have the sweet street poetry and powerful vocals of Toby Misconception. Musically, these songs are catchy and swing like hell, but the great lyrics take them over the top. Toby’s committed delivery connects with the listener on a visceral level, and makes you believe every word. And oh, that glorious trumpet.
The band is playing several shows in support of the release in the coming weeks, watch these pages for details. As mentioned earlier, their incendiary live shows are not to be missed. These guys really connect with their audience in a way that’s rare in these days of manufactured images and music. Kokos and Friends are a band with their heart in the right place, and they play with soul and conviction. Get your hands on a copy of ‘Pirates, Thugs and Thieves’ and become a believer.

Best Van Band
Kokos and Friends are more than just a band... They represent a way of being. It is a life style. Only a small handful of bands have what Kokos have. And those bands live on.
