Welcome to The Kinison, another angry collection of post-hardcore, punk anarchists emerging from the California club scene. Formed in 1999 by three mates who were sick of the local music scene, they believed that they could make a difference, (sound familiar to anyone?) The band achieved recognition by touring the small clubs of the LA area, before sliding into some big festival slots.
The Kinison then finding some time to put something down, recorded an EP Mortgage Is Band, securing themselves a record deal with LaSalle/Atlantic. And let’s face it, there are worse companies you can be signed to. The Blink 182 boys are playing a large part in the promotion of What Are You Listening To? as they have brought The Kinison along for the European leg of their tour.
The whole of What Are You Listening To?, produced by Pelle Henricsson and Eskil Lovstrom, was recorded in an unbelievable 15 days. And for those who don’t know, Henricsson and Lovstrom were the men behind the genre-defining The Shape Of Punk To Come by the late Refused.
