Kennelmus - "Folkstone Prism"
To throw a little history in here with the Sun City Girls posts, here's a early oddball album from the Phoenix area.
"Kennélmus - named after the group's creative hotshot, Ken Walker (born Kennélmus Edward Walkiewicz) - has been kept a secret far too long. The insinuating, addictive sound of this Phoenix, Arizona combo-relying heavily on Walker's electric keyboards and the mindshredding guitar of Bob Narloch to turn your brain into macaroni and cheese-has been the private plaything of the thousand lucky people who bought the album almost 30 years ago. A headscratching pun on England's Folkestone Prison (don't ask). The more relevant question should be: where have you been all my life? The answer, however, is so riddled with desert-marinated mysticism and peyote-laced tales of fear, degradation and debauchery that the answer only leads to further questions. Be content that Kennélmus-with its insinuating blend of the Chantays, the Quicksilver Messenger Service and the Electric Prunes and many more heat-induced musical visions-is here at last. It is possibly the strongest link in the hand-forged chain of genetically altered combos who have called Arizona home over the decades.
