Ken Fox & Knock Yourself Out

(Rum Bar Records)
Rumbarrecords.bandcamp.com

Way back in early March, when people could still safely gather in a sweaty rock 'n' roll club, Ken Fox & Knock Yourself Out lit a musical fire at Quinn's in their hometown of Beacon. Longtime Fleshtones bassist Fox and powerhouse combo Knock Yourself Out were celebrating the release of this dynamo of an EP. With his fiery, quavering delivery, Fox makes a convincing front man. It also doesn't hurt to have the explosive and versatile KYO as the musical engine room, along with a host of notable Hudson Valley players adding horns, piano, and violin. Fleshtones fans will recognize the gloriously buzzy, Fox-penned "Let's Go!" and "One Step Less" from 1995's Laboratory of Sound. The psych-punk ramalama of the Pink Fairies' "Do It" is a highlight, as is the power-pop-meets-honky-tonk of "Love is in the Grave."
