It’s HIM. Kim Kix! The Toréador of Trash. It’s PowerSOLO. The rock’n’roll band that you hate to hate and your galfriend just loves to love. Ahead of the release of new album BO-PEEP, PowerSOLO have announced a run of UK tour dates for September, with a date at The Lantern in Halifax on September 7th.
BO-PEEP was conceived, written and partially recorded during an extended weekend of solitary recluse at the Waikiki of Denmark. One man. One guitar. One kick drum. One microphone. Two bottles of absinthe. Once back in the big, bad, Jutlandian metropolis of Aarhus, Kix added more guitars, drums, organs and his old secret weapon: The triple bass. He even met up with his Railthin Brother Bo, who laid down a few dope beats on a couple of songs for Christ… and old times’ sake. Mixing was achieved through the divine intervention of Mr. Nik Heyman, and a final layer of dirt was shovelled into the woodchipper by Emil Thomsen at ET Mastering. 17 songs in total. The ones too strong for unlimited release were chosen to comprise the 7-inch 45rpm wonder that is PEEK-A-BO, released in 500 copies on Record Store Day 2018.
The beautiful artwork was done by Martin Wild of The Courettes – a fine band for whom Kim Kix has produced 2 records. The colours are bold and the designs even bolder. The final result defies description. But we’ll try: This is a fine record. Damn fine. It’s what the doctor ordered. It’s what your Father warned you against. It is highly toxic but strangely addictive. It is BO-PEEP. And PEEK-A-BO. A double whammy like you’ve never heard before. 17 inches of pure undiluted PowerSolo. Can you dig it?
