The Kong Company story so far…. They’re a band from Waterford, five blokes, a girl and a Boxhead. In 2011 they started putting out one video a month, put on the first gig in 2012 and played Indiependence on the back of a truck. Soon after Body & Soul booked them for an early Sunday evening at Electric Picnic where word had spread and the crowd had grown. Since then they have sold out Cork Opera House, the Button Factory, The Academy and most recently the legendary Olympia.
King Kong Company have played to 13,000 people in a tent at Electric Picnic for Sunday Mass, had thousands of hedonists lay siege to the Body & Soul arena for their stuffed to the gills lock in that closed the legendary stage. And in between there’s been tracks, an album produced by The Prodigy’s producer Neil McLellan, a Buckfast beer, Glastonbury, a robot, All Together Now, late nights, parties, early mornings, ferries, Prague, London, Newcastle, the engagement proposal, broken down vans, Spraoi, a Best Band in Ireland award and stuff that should never end up in print or online. Then some sort of pandemic, a weird far flung feeling that was miles away from the pandemonium of a King Kong Company gig. It’s time to bring it back.
