Product Description

Kenneth Higney ‎– Funky Kinky / I Wanna Be The King

NEW 7" SINGLE

REISSUE

Official reissue of Kenneth Higney's lone 45rpm single. Compared to 'Attic Demonstration', the recordings are much more polished. Synthesizers and "pop sensibility" have found their way into Higney's music, but this is still incredibly strange stuff. 'Funky Kinky' is an especially unique come-on to a lady and 'I Wanna Be The King' is an "ode or tribute, whatever you'd like to call it, to the NYC punk scene of Max's Kansas City and CBGB's in general and Johnny Thunders (the "King") in particular," according to the artist. "I hate the sissy music of John Denver." Higney goes on to say: In June of 1980 Kebrutney released a seven inch single of 'I Wanna Be The King' b/w 'Funky Kinky'. This was my shot at being a performing writer and these were my first recordings done with the intent of being released to the general public. They were not demos. My thinking was to release a "double A side," which was reflected by the catalog numbers on the label: "KBH-516RAS" for 'I Wanna Be The King' was the rock ("R") side and "KBH-516FAS" was the funk ("F") side. A monster record which drowned in the swamp after being chased by the villagers.
