Lily Allen’s haterade got me curious about the Kooks. I know they’re bloody huge across the pond, with two hit singles, but I haven’t listened to this band much. Dig the Gnarls cover, but then again, I’ve yet to meet a cover of “Crazy” I don’t like.
So here’s the song that will be the Kooks’ first US single (album’s out 10/3). Sure we could name a half dozen other bands who this sounds like, but it’s a fun burst of summer rock ‘n’ roll. Wonder why Lily’s picking on them. Maybe Luke asked for her phone number?
If you wanna know what they look like, watch the “Eddie’s Gun” video (WIN MEDIA).
