KING CORNELIUS & THE SILVERBACKS
SWINGING SIMIAN SOUNDS*
From deep within the jungle comes KING CORNELIUS, tracked, hunted and captured by a sturdy band known as THE SILVERBACKS.
Working together, they have combined the sounds of the jungle, the jet set and the space age using tones taken from the surf and the garage. Their debut album “Swinging Simian Sounds” absolutely catches this sound combination – starting off with the fun surf‐pop‐punk‐tune “Chimps in Space” the record grabs you instantly and literally makes you go ape! You get a cool instrumental surf tune “Tabu” with chimpanzee sounds on the one hand and mental garage‐punk songs like “I'm a Monkey” on the other. Not least, you will find the beautiful, dreamy ballad “Only Ape in Space” that rounds up the album perfectly. Be prepared for the rites of passage to the hidden listening pleasures of "Swinging Simian Sounds" and all it has to offer to the willing and the ready. You'll never look at a monkey the same way again!
