Artist: The Dead Kenny Gs
Title: Operation Long Leash

If the moniker for the combustible punk jazz trio The Dead Kenny Gs doesn't say it all for it's intentions, a first listen on their new album OPERATION LONG LEASH quickly sets the record straight. At one moment they'll pull inspiration from punk legends the Minutemen while the next finds them embracing the spirit of jazz giant Rahsaan Roland Kirk, while another finds the influences of indie rock progenitors Deerhoof, and yet all the while sounding completely of themselves. And it's not just music informing the trios voice, but a deep understanding of political conspiracy in American history. The albums title comes from the clandestine CIA operation in the late 40s to fund Abstract Expressionism as a means for Western culture to undermine the rigid, confined and conformist ideals of the Soviet Union during the early years of Cold War.
