TONIO K.

Post by Shiney on Wed Apr 08, 2009 8:58 pm










This cat shouldve been huge. He was crafting tunes throughout the 70's and flirted with minor underground success with 1977's "Life In The Food Chain", a fantastic platter of aggro-rock new waveish punk hardness....

Scathingly witty lyrics...This guy wrote 'em and should have been famous for 'em..But he came and went with nary a blip on the ol' radar.

He eeked out a semi decent tenrue as a songwriter, which is okay.

But I urge you all to check these tunes out and see what you've no doubt missed.

You've put him on a few comps for me. I can't remember what I thought of him.

I have always dug the guy....

What made me dwell on him this week was an email volley between Skipp and me.

I always title the emails i send him with an onscure line from a song...

I chose 'Life In The Foodchain"

Skipp replied with a section of lyrics from the chorus.

As well as a section from "Funky Western Civ"...

Too odd...that he digs an obscure dude like TK...

So it got me on him and Ive had him in the car stereo all week...

Interesting... I really like that stuff.

My impression was that he was slick pop. I wasn't expecting the punk edge.
