where are they from? the world! well, London

Why you should like them
Their name stands for The Intergalactic Republic of Kongo which is pretty cool name for a band.
Their music is a mixture of electronics, afrobeat, trance with a punk attitude. The sound of the inner city- all the different types of music pouring out of the open windows on a summer stay at the same time…the sound of squat parties and the multi cultural rush of modern music as you walk through the London streets on a warm summer evening- the meting pot of culture and sound…

what’s the cut of their gib?
Put together by one time Dead Kids frontman Mike Title, this is a band that has no barriers, every track sounds different- tripped out, jagged, dancey hypnotic. You may need drugs but we don’t advise them.
