KUNG FU MONKEYS, THE: Coast to Coast with the Kung Fu Monkeys: 7"

Mar 06, 2007

Music created by human Happy Meal prizes! Querents who wish to know what it is that separates Elfin Masters of Treacle-Core such as the KFM from mere wishful thinkers should look no further than "Chapel Hill, Surf City"—J. Cahill could have easily just let the lyrics contain the comparatively vanilla line "The California coastline is really the most," but, instead, he spent the extra three seconds to think about it a little bit and presented it in the subtly-but-powerfully altered form of "The California coastline is really the mostline"—transmuting mere Vanilla to mighty Chocolate Chip Mint with one deftly placed syllable! Please make a note of it. In a perfect world, James Cahill would be playing Dr. Doom in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie, and the Stormtroopers in Star Wars would wear sweater vests. BEST SONG: "Chapel Hill, Surf City" BEST SONG TITLE: "Candy Shoppe (Twice)," if only for the esoteric Modern Lovers reference FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: 1. This record contains the Swimmingly Records Slip of Quality: "If it weren't quality, we wouldn't put it out, and we wouldn't put this little slip of paper in it either. That's a promise." 2. The Kung Fu Monkeys once bought me lunch. You're goddamn right there was a milkshake involved!  –norb (Swimmingly)
