hello, You can get Kitchen Of Insanity CDīs in a shop in Belgium called "Music Emporium" in Namur. www.music-emporium.net
I know it! And I know it well! Itīs surely one of the best cds in my collection, and I have over 500 albums. I heard it pretty often on Studio Brussel radio station around the time of its release - canīt rememeber which song it was. I went out to Fnac where they had a whole rack of this cd on display. It was warmly recommeded by everyone who played or sold it. Even today the music sounds as fresh as it did almost 15 years ago. I hope to see these guys turn up again; maybe in a reformed KOI, maybe in a new band...
I think 'Orpheus Feelingī is a great album and it is very strange that nobody knows it. If I play it to people they indeed always refer to the Doors, but I think KOI have a sound of their own. Not every band with en deep voice and an organ is a Doors-clone. I first heard it from the singer of a band that I used to play in (called Gumbrains). He is the only person in the world I know who knows KOI. I recorded the album on a cassette, and I still like it. And okay, itīs good when some mysteries remain in pop music.
The debum KOI album. I got it after the band came to attention and got more airplay with their second outing, Orpheus Feeling. Although the latter is far more sophisticated, this debut has its own strength; mixing rock, blues, classical influences,... Itīs all pretty much there... All very straight forward. Also look for the TIME cd maxi single. This one holds two more songs that are not te be found on the two KOI albums!
I heard some new songs from the singerīs(Paul De Borger)new band "Drunken Maria" and they are great.Catch them at www.drunkenmaria.be
Saw them at the Humoīs rock rally final. They were second after Noordkaap. Really great band. Paul is now playing in "Drunken Maria". But they didnīt release an album yet.
I saw Kitchen of Insanity in the beginnings of the 1990th in Regensburg/Germany. It was a great experience. I never forgot it. The voice of Paul de Borger is wonderful.
Iīve seen this band in Germany somewhere in the nineties and they where fantastic.I heard from collectors there are about forty unreleased songs....and Iīll bet that if you take the ten best of them...you will have a masterpiece.....
giant band opgericht begin jaren 90 Dreamaway sunday is een droomplaat Oorspronkelijke bezetting met Frank , Paul , Michel , Jan en Stefan geweldige periode - geweldige optredens notalgie ten top 2e plaats rockrally wanneer reunie ????
Indeed, there is NOTHING to be found on this band! This is very strange, as the music is superb! Think of a mix of The Doors, The Church, Echo& The Bunnymen and Madrugada and some Nick Cave... Amazing disc. Search for it I advise you. cheers Niek
