De Italiaanse psychedelische rock groep King Bong heeft aangekondigd dat ze hun epische album OGOPOGO via Mandrone Records zullen uitbrengen op 5 maart 2021. Deze vier uur durende opname neemt de luisteraars mee op een magische trip in een geweldig land. Chis Haskett, (guitarist of Henry Rollins, Bowie and Tool) en Rosarita Crisalfi zijn de special guests.
Mandrone Records says of this unique offering,
"We are proud to help King Bong to release this epic episode of the Beekse Bergen saga, OGOPOGO. The first time we listened to it, it was a proper ritual: dimmed lights, closed eyes and their music brought us from London to Milan. Our mind ended up in the studio with the band playing.
We already knew how big are the landscapes the trio is able to paint with their instruments, but Chris' additional guitars and Rosarita Crisafi's saxophone brought everything to a higher level. We merged with the music.
OGOPOGO will be released on the 5th of March as a digital download and in a Limited Edition of 50 box set of 4 CDs. Each box set is patiently crafted by the talented hands of Alberto, Andrea and Teo, who are now manufacturing this pure expression of DIY Philosophy. (So even if they can’t jam because of the lockdown, they are working together as a team)
The box set will be available on the band’s Bandcamp and on Mandrone Records Store as a special edition, which will include a printed map of the Beekse Bergen land.
It’s so cool to have these guys in Mandrone."
