King Champion Sounds Facebook
Louder Than War are about to release their second album to follow on from the successful Evil Blizzard debut.
It’s from the Dutch based Ajay Saggar led band King Champion Sounds and it’s called ‘Songs For The Golden Hour’ and it’s a great collision between the rumbling Stranglers/Fall bass grind and the joys of African and Ethiopian music and a great wonky brass sections with the cutting and direct vocals of Jos who used to sing with the Ex.
Ajay was a comer member of John peel faves Dandelion Adventure and used to be part of the Membranes strange and dislocated world.
Smart lyrics, thrilling songs and a great sound mark this out to be a great release.
It’s wonderful and thrilling release and you can buy it from here
