Their band site at http://yardsandgods.com/burgerkingdom/ provides a fascinating bio:
"Masters of reverb, delay, fuzz, loops, puns, and supreme hipness, Burger Kingdom has been churning out hazey lo-fi shoegaze since summer 2008 when the instrumental guitar comedy duo formerly known as Umbros morphed into the current guitar and drums setup."
Richard: "The transition from comedy to music seems natural, and I wouldn't mind seeing the LC make this move someday, assuming Chip and I can learn drums and guitar."
A little internet sleuthing led us to a site called Too Much Rock (www.toomuchrock.com), which is likely going to prove a new favorite for us and offers a review of a recent Burger Kingdom show at the Replay:
"Although Moore announced "This is our last song" before beginning every number in the band's half hour set, he made sure to punctuate the actual conclusion by throwing his guitar into the drumkit. This sent the kit, and Howard with it, tumbling to the stage floor. Perhaps a grander finale than warranted?"
Sounds like just the right amount of "grand" to us, readers, and we look forward to their Replay show tomorrow.
