After the successful "La Jupe Volante" project, whose B-side has been synchronised on the Australian TV series the Offspring (Channel Ten); Kind & Kinky Zoo are back with some hard hitting pure laidback style music. They have received massive support both in the clubs and on the airwaves and now they are back, with on the flipside the help of Lack of Afro, or Adam Gibbons as he's known to his psychiatrist. Two pistol paced and good-natured tunes as they are very capable of.
A Side - WONDER ZEBRA Somewhere between retro psychedelia and afrobeat lies the Wonder Zebra. Speeding along à la Calibro 35, the feel is frantic and thrilleresque. No wonder Kind & Kinky Zoo are a big hit on foreign TV shows.
B Side - V.L.A.M. (LOA remix) A breezy bite-sike chunk of head nodding, foot tapping funky beats. Led by a warm, sunny flute and irresistable rhodes, rather reminiscent of a 60s slice of dancefloor-friendly acid jazz. Small but perfectly formed.
