The Kooks

The Kooks - FUV Live - 2014

by Eric Holland

The Kooks have a new drummer, Alexis Nunez, who has brought a dance-a-bility factor to the band. That's according to Luke Pritchard, the very naturalistic rock star who sings and writes the songs. The fourth Kooks record is dramatically different than its three brothers. As the original quartet from Brighton has matured into the core duo and a freshly locked-in rhythm section, the songs from Listen demand compliance. In this session at our Bronx studios captured the afternoon before their show at The Paramount on Long Island, Luke nods to some funk inspiration.

The Kooks - Words and Music - 2011

by Kara Manning
Personnel may have changed, but The Kooks have survived quadruple-platinum selling success to continue their musical development. Back with the new album 'Junk Of The Heart,' Luke Pritchard and Hugh Harris from the band stopped by FUV for an acoustic set and a chat with host Kara Manning. [06/28/2011]
