No disrespect to The Kooks, but I honestly had no idea how popular they really were. I really enjoyed their first album, Inside In/Inside Out, but always assumed that was the peak of their fame.

 

Turns out I was wrong. The Palais was packed to the rafters with their legion of fans. Even more interesting was that while the girls screamed and danced, it was their jocky,...

Following a six-month break, The Kooks have been busy crafting material for a “groovier” fourth album, as well as rehearsing for their upcoming Australian tour. But unlike many musicians who you may expect to spend the time off collaborating, working on a solo project, or putting in some time with the family, The Kooks’ lead guitarist Hugh Harris says he did what every other young man would do...

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

Back with their second EP since the quietly celebrated debut Distance Is a Gun, Melbourne three-piece Celadore offer up another slice of melodic pop-rock mastery with The Bright and Blue.

 

 

While the opening bars of Bakery may bear the markings of many distinctly average pop-punk outfits that have come before, by the end of the track its clear there's a little more...

When the Beatles, aka the Biggest Band In The World released Please Please Me in 1963, they weren't just lauded - they were also heavily criticised.

As I’m sure fans are astutely aware, The Kooks swiftly sold out their Palace show on January 4 after it was announced earlier this year. 

 

Missed out on tickets? Been carrying around a deep regret ever since? Not sleeping too well there, little guy? Well have we got news for you. Due to overwhelming demand, the organisers have gone and upped the venue capacity, moving the show...

The Kooks have arrived at album number three, one of an erratic disposition. The band's endeavours here frequently fluctuate in quality, ensuring a frustrating experience.

 

The title-track strikes gold early, its frosty ambiance ushering in an impassioned crescendo. "I want to make you happy," declares front man Luke Pritchard, a striking simplicity defining his sentiments. The...
