Kapitan Korsakov – dangerously abbreviated to KKK – are back!
After taking a break to focus on his other band Raketkanon, Pieter-Paul Devos (vocals / guitar) gathered his bandmates Pieter Van Mullem (bass) and Sigfried Burroughs (drums) to go camping in Chicago’s Electrical Audio Studios and record the successor of the latest Kapitan Korsakov album “Stuff & Such” (2012).
“Physical Violence Is The Least Of My Priorities” is recorded and mixed by kindred spirit Steve Albini and show Kapitan Korsakov at their best: an eclectic mix of uncompromised noiserock, catchy melodies bathing in a mudpool of distorted sounds and heartbreaking songs.
“There are no genres in music. There is only good, sincere music and there is bad music”, says frontman Pieter-Paul Devos.
Honest songwriting, authenticity and disregarding all things fashionable are Kapitan Korsakov’s trademarks. Quite the relief in times of mediocre radio-pollution.
