THE KORGIS Take An Askance Look At Their Kareer

One can never get bored, only dewy-eyed, in the kompany of THE KORGIS who never tire of finding new ways to entertain their followers. So, as if the recent release of the ensemble’s biography and the veterans’ forthcoming concert with an orchestra weren’t enough, the British collective are gearing up for domestic release, on October 28th, of “Kool Hits, Kuriosities & Kollaborations” – the successor of sorts to "Kartoon World" and something they call a Japanese album, because it was compiled at the request of a label from the Land of the Setting Sun yet has a worldwide appeal. As the platter’s title suggests, it’s not a new opus per se but, rather, a fresh approach to the – mostly – previously issued pieces that were given a different shine, feel and color.

To fully grasp what’s in there – and possibly, having taken a glance, hop at the pre-order bandwagon to snatch some goodies in the form of special packages – look here:
