Brighton based sextet, Opus Kink share ‘Wild Bill’, the latest addition to the ‘Nice Swan Introduces…’ single series.
Opus Kink may not be your average growl-slinger, yet their impact is rapidly becoming notorious. Roaming over teeming anti-structures as practitioners of undisputed discovery, their character is a confidence to be reckoned with – the very kind of inspired saga in which to be a ‘Wild Bill’ one must first entertain the notion of wearing your influences on your sleeve whilst ripping said material to absolute shreds.
In a land where growled-jazz meets the blues in a showdown to end all perceptions of genre, Jim Morrison may have been the self-proclaimed “lizard king” and The Lounge Lizards a hectic bunch of freewheelers, but somewhere in the midst of cultural iconography and instrumentally blazed brass, lies a cold-blooded Opus Kink.
