Coconut Kings - Lost & Thirsty In Palookaville (7" vinyl single)
TZ991Regular price $7.49
After a year and a half, the five-piece band Coconut Kings formed from the duo Hannibal Slim and Captain Boogie. The band only played (and rehearsed) on the streets at first, where they could make some money as well as having fun.
All members of the band from Valais, Switzerland share an affinity for American black music from the 1900's to the late 1960's: swing, jazz, blues, soul, delta blues and especially rhythm 'n' blues and dirty rock' n'roll. In addition to Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Bunker Hill and various releases from Chess Records, her sources of inspiration include films by Jim Jarmusch, the Coen brothers and books by Henry Charles Bukowski.
