If you've seen my "Skate Rock" post, you know how much skate video soundtrack music inspired me as a young idiot. Well, I first heard Kinghorse on such a skate video. I could be wrong, but I think the video was Speed Freaks, and it was during Art or Steve Godoy's part. Coincdentally, that was also the first time I heard mention of Radio Birdman - a future favorite.
I bought the Kinghorse CD right away and for the first and last time in my life, I actually took up the offer to "send a S.A.S.E. for lyric sheet". Awesomely enough It came back with a super nice letter from singer, Sean Garrison. If I run across it, I'll scan it and add a link.
Danzig produced the record, and either the band or label put his name in big bold letters on the back, but I was sold at the Pushead cover.If you're into stuff like Wurm, Overkill and St. Vitus you may just dig Louisville, Kentucky's Kinghorse. Then again, maybe you're already a fan.
Buy it new on Amazon for $47.98 or...
