They may be from Barcelona but The Kinky Coo Coos have a long history devoted to classic Jamaican rhythms. One of the hardest working bands on the live scene they offer catchy rocksteady, ska and soulful reggae. The band have backed Jamaican stars such as Dave Barker , Rico Rodriguez, Laurel Aitken (R.I.P) Roy Ellis, Earl 16 and Sister Audrey.....
We’re talking about some of the best musicians on the Catalunya scene. The classic line up of drums and upright bass supplying the rhythm along with two guitars and keyboards serving up the melodies with a brass section and two female vocalists means non stop dancing all night long.
Eight years ago The Kinky Coo Coo’s fronted by Lord Kaya launched their fantastic covers album. Three years later Montjuic Boneyard hit the record stores. That album’s release in Japan lead to the appearance of band’s own songs on two Japanese compilations: "Moon Shine - Ska in The World Collection" and "Wonderful Smile -Ska in the World, vol 2"
At the close of 2010 their Jamaican musical train arrived at Barcelona after two international tours. The Kinky Coo Coo’s had presented their new show in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenja, Rep. Cheka & Germany and several cities in Spain. En route they released a new single (Full of Hope/Alive Brains).Scorcha Records for the German market.
Enthused by the response to their tours the band headed for with renewed energy and laid down some soulful tracks in Kinkylab. Early in 2009 The Kinky Coo Coo’s issued a self produced EP called "The Mean Machine" on .. Liquidator.
The Kinky Coo Coos bring you the original sixties/seventies styles of the Jamaican golden era. They’re guaranteed to make you dance and feel as if you were backayard in Kingston
