Recommended Posts


Hi all!

Bit of a milestone over at Brew towers as we have our first full length album coming out from our favourite rock monster Kong. This has been a long time waiting but Snake Magnet will be released on Monday 13th July 2009 on a gorgeous CD/DVD matt finish digipak and all major download sites. The sexy artwork above is by Jon-Lee Martin of the Kong variety. Head over to STRATO for more of Jons artwork.

This release come with a bumper one hour documentary on the band featuring Biffy Clyro, Nine Black Alps, music videos for Leather Penny & Blood Of A Dove, shopping with Kong & Live at the 100 club. Check out the myspace for Sport and the music video for Leather Penny below for a sneaky taster:

All in all you get over 3 hours of audio and video material for a bargain price of 9.99, the first 100 preorders also come with limited, numbered, hand-drawn, signed artwork from the leather penny video shoot (pictured below). Head over to towsend records to pre order a copy:

Heres some nice press clippings:

If you like Shellac and Fugazi, consider Kong the toxic shock syndrome version; they will more than likely please your ears but definitely give you a side of nausea. How do I know? Cos Ive got a copy of their hideously good debut album Snake Magnet playing right now. Check it out upon its release on July 13th or Ill send a scary baboon round to your gaff to set your eyelids on fire. Just messing. Ill send Kong NME

One of the best live bands in the UK right now Dan Carter BBC Radio 1

Welcome to Kong's world. It's a world of heavy punk and cellotaped faces (leading to pretty scary gigs). You'd be mad not to enter and you'll probably leave it madder still Artrocker

Manchester mob definitively kick the pop out of the punk with this raw and abrasive track with a hefty dose of Fugazi lurking beneath the surface. Kerrang

"Kong might just be the best band in Britain right now. Ferociously powerful, stunningly inventive, and equal doses of scary and humorous." Dirtyzine
