More Info
Emerging during a period marked by the post-punk, new wave, disco and early hip-hop scenes, KONK straddled
genres, blending the balls to the wall attitude of punk with the dance your ass off rhythms of the clubs, an eclectic
approach that resonated throughout the city. Equally at home in rock clubs such as CBGB’s as they were in
Danceteria and Paradise Garage, KONK took NYC’s supercollider of sounds and melted them down into a hard driving, latin infused flavour all of their own.
"The Magic Force Of Konk 1981-1988" is a testament to the bands artistic staying power, the music sounding as fresh
now as it did then, from the crossover funk grooves of the ‘Planet Rock’ inspired ‘Konk Party’, to the innovative punk
funk synth bass of club hit ‘Your Life’, the bands influence indisputably lives on in this specially created deluxe
collection. This beautifully designed package is a feast for the senses, looking as good as it sounds and sure to please
fans of Liquid Liquid, ESG, Pigbag, James Chance, Soul Sonic Force, LCD Soundsystem, to name but a few, or simply
those intrigued by those tales of wild nightlife that have become synonymous with the vitality of 1980’s downtown
New York City.

Each deluxe set includes 3x140g limited edition ‘Night Fun’ coloured vinyl - where each of the three discs are a different vinyl colour (transparent red with black marble splatter, solid bright yellow and classic black). Included alongside all the original studio recordings by the band are live tracks from CBGB’s plus a disk of DJ mixes, which can be used to mix alongside the original versions of ‘Your Life’ and ‘Konk Party’. These records come in a wide spined gloss laminated sleeve and contain a 12pg book featuring photos, flyers and a written piece by journalist Ezra Gale, and as if that wasn’t enough also included is a huge poster and a digital download of the tracks.
