A whole new selection of the best songs ever written by New York City punk-rock icon Kevin K. For the first time on vinyl format (double LP) !
To introduce the subject of Kevin K we must go deep inside the history of the New York City rockin roll. Itself the glam era of the New York Dolls and Heartbreakers. Kevin plays in his first group Aunt Helen in 1978. Then it will be The Toys who later will become the New Toys. They will open many shows for Romantics, Dirty Looks, Ramones, Pat Benatar, Sylvain Sylvain, The Fast, Talas and Johnny Thunders Heartbreakers. While livin at 89 Bleecker Street in NYC. Kevin and brother Alan will play in The Lone Cowboys from 1983 till 1988. Both brothers are found in the Road Vultures from 1989 till 1994 developing and appofonding a songwriting marrying pleasure.The Vultures again open many shows for, Sylvain Sylvain and Jerry Nolan, Dee Dee Ramone, The Waldos and Cheetah Chrome. In 1995 Kevin tries his chance in solo with the album "Nightlife". The first in a very long series. The death of Kevins brother Alan in 1996 causes him a radical change in his way of approaching life and the myth of rockin roll. He will be devoted from now on entirely to the music. Then its like a rain of albums....Kevins a true survivor and a hero to beat down rockin roll romantics the world over. Hes not young or good looking, so dont look for him on the cover of Glammer magazine. Kevin has been around forever and possesses the tenacity of a cockroach !
