Un Petit Gouter-The Best of Kilopop!
- Artist: Kilopop
- Format: CD
- Release Date:7/9/2002
Future Fossil Records is proud to present Kilopop!...Europe's second best pop band and our first foreign-licensing release. Although virtually unknown in the USA, Furk and Trynka Zhenk have been consistent chart-toppers in the EU for over three decades, as well as furious experimenters who've stretched pop's parameters in every conceivable direction. As Furk says: 'Why shouldn't the definition of 'pop' include a Shaggs song (Who Are Parents?) or a Raymond Scott tune (Coming Back Down to Earth)? We aren't too concerned with what pop is, but rather what pop could and should be.' Is America ready for Kilopop!? We think so...enjoy! - Chris Butler ...........
