Kid Confucius – ‘Good Luck’
After their last album Stripes sent them traversing our continent, Kid Confucius took some downtime to start work on a new album. It’s still untitled, but we’ve got the first single here, the funky ‘Good Luck’, which is also the first song since the departure of guitarist Ray Mann (who is actually in that picture above, sorry guys!).
It’s got potential, though it feels a bit stilted and lacks some of that funky soul that oozed out of Stripes. Just check out some of the material on the KC MySpace page. ‘Last Straw’ is a particular favourite – one of my favourite songs of ’07.
The album’s due to hit stores October 18 so I’ll be interested to see what else is on the disc. Kid Confucius are never a band to write off.
