It’s a case of dance not and you’ll be sitting alone. But want to know why the name really rings a bell? It’s because The Krak are no ordinary band. In fact they’re pretty out of the ordinary. In just over a year the London based foursome have achieved things most groups take a lifetime to. They’ve been featured on national TV.
Loads. Had radio sessions a plenty. Played a gig to gorillas in London Zoo. Done their own guerilla gig thing at clothes shops around London.
They were the first band to ever, that’s ever, play the iconic Orient Express and the quartet took their travelling tour on a Routemaster bus for an acoustic show round the streets of London town. The band have even been personally requested to perform at celeb studded high profile parties thrown by everyone from Jodie Harsh to Kelly Osbourne. Shucks, they even made Velvet Revolver dance. But, you know what, they’re still yet to release a single… Well, that’s about to change.
In your hands now lies their stunning debut Madame Riviere out on the Rock Against Racism label - Militant Entertainment. Already given the thumbs up by Xfm the three minuter of rabble-rousing glory is a mere snippet of what’s to come. And it’s already wet some important taste buds - The Krak have recently been requested to open up this year’s Glastonbury festival as well as playing a set on the Left Field stage. Heck – they’re even going to make history by becoming the first group ever to rock up ‘n’ play for tourists at world famous Madame Tussauds London.
