The Kooks went on more than half an hour late and their set was also really long so a lot of people left early to see the foo's.

Has anyone heard Max Rafferty's new stuf yet? For those who don't know, he was the original bassist who left the band at the start of the year

I always liked him the best

ooohh! Max! I love him! I saw them on Summercase, I was on first line. Post #89 reminds me that concert. He passed all concert flitered with a girl who was next to me so, at last song, he went down (u said like this?) and everybody got mad. I had to hold him ...

(Sorry for my English)

I just discovered the Kooks and am in love with their music. I listened to them all morning. They also have the best music video concepts out of all the bands out there. "Sine On" is so beautiful.

I loved their first album, and they have some really good demos. But Konk sucked.

How is it that I'm digging this thread back from the dead?

Love, love, love The Kooks. It's weird, they make such infectious tunes yet I don't find Luke particularly vocally talented. His song writing is another story however. Can't decide if I want to see 'em at Webster Hall this week. Last time I saw them, Luke was wasted and didn't put on the show I would've hoped for.

I think Junk of the Heart is consistent with both albums. They grow, musically, yet stick to the same tried and true sound. I think they'll be around for quite some time.
