Sinners, come worship at the altar of KeN!
THE GODS OF ROCK ARE FEMALE!!!!
KeN is a unique blend of musical styles and influences created by an uncommon
assembly of musicians. Their common goal is a raw natural desire to kick some
rock and roll ass. Influenced by waning moons, booze, the concept that music is
math, and the urban Philadelphia shadows, KeN channels the grit and spit to
shape their song concepts in the cauldron of their original brand of rock.
KeN's long hallowed history has included shows with such greats as the Psychedelic Furs, Mike Watt, Alice
Donut, The Makers, Scrawl, Jenny Toomey, Kimya Dawson, Burning Brides, Capitol City Dusters, Ida, Kabochak, and Ben Folds Five. The unique brand of
KeN rock has been described as "sweetly bitter punk love anthems" (Jill
McDowell, Philadelphia Weekly); "estro-gin power collective" (Joey
Sweeney, Philadelphia Weekly);
"straight-up-shoot-from-the-hip-rock-outfit" (Julie Gerstein, Philadelphia Weekly); "a strange world where everything
sounds fine and its OK to fly off the handle" (Eric Wareheim, Rockpile);
and "Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! With a capital A, A, A!!" (Alex Baker, artist,
skate punk and Philly man-about-town).
After ten years of supporting and rocking the Philadelphia local music
scene, KeN released their first full-length CD, Parade of Sinners, in July 2005. Recorded July 2003
with Brian McTear at Miner Street and mixed and mastered in February 2004
with Pete Rydberg at 1935, the CD is a non-stop powerful force of nature. In November 2006, KeN's Parade of Sinners
won "Best Punk Album of the Year" at the Just Plain Folks Music Awards out in Los Angeles!
KeN latest album, Silky Smooth Destruction, was released in 2008.
