A brief history of The Kunks

New Album Released:
Excursions In Trevorland

What do you get when you combine a legendary, much-honored man of letters and an adventurous New York tunesmith? One of the most original and enthralling indie-pop releases of the year. John Dunbar turns the stories of William Trevor into some of the catchiest and most intelligent pop songs heard in a long while. With tales supplied by William Trevor and music recalling the works of Ray Davies, Squeeze and Harry Nilsson, anyone listening is in store for a highly satisfying experience.
