Album Notes
While their second album was safe in the hands of Fuzzy Rainbow, Kimono Draggin’ decided to get in over their heads and hop into the studio for their third full-length album, We Are The Dudes. After a chance meeting with sound technician’s Matt Labozza and Kurt D’aniello, the band was invited to come into the recording studios at The University of New Haven less than a month later where they layed down 11 tracks. For “Dudes” the band wanted to harken back to the classic days of Rock when little importance was given to “experimenting“ but rather, simply laying down fat, warm sounds. Combining a plethora of prog, punk, blues and even metal tones, the overall feel of this record is HUGE. Constantly changing tempos
as solid grooves build into absolute completion.

Verbicide (Craig Gilbert)

We are the Dudes (Featured Album)
To quote the pre-GOP Dennis Miller, “I don’t wanna go off on a rant her, but…..”.

We, as a people, have an aural problem. We hear things but we very rarely listen. And that societal fault is the thing that is so fucking wrong with Kimono Draggin’….well, not what’s wrong with the three guys in the band per se, but…..

You see, of all the perky little ears that will hear this disc, they will hear but they will not listen. They will hear discord…despite it not being there as the tunes flow effortlessly. They will hear missed notes….despite those notes perfectly and appropriately filling the spaces they need to fill. They will hear goofiness and take that as not being serious….despite the humor being clever, tongue-in-cheek, and fun, and the guys being spot-on with their playing.

This record is awesome. Brilliantly off-kilter, sometimes Stooges-esque minimalism that flips into some “experimental” Mothers moments and big, fat dollops of rock. And while there is the musical angularity going on, that factor doesn’t drown the album out in “odd for the sake of odd.” It’s so musically sound — just not sound from this part of the universe.

Imagine some Beefheart pop/rock songs played by Mr. Bungle.

Eleven tracks long, and really, how can you go wrong with a song called “Allan Sherman’s Father Was a Racecar Driver” or “Julius Seizure Salad”? Well, let me tell you: you can’t.

We are the Dudes
Kimono Draggin' has two new albums out. Details of the first one, "Space Orphans" can be found a bit further below.

"We Are The Dudes" got recorded shortly after "Space Orphans". The album sounds a bit less experimental than "Orphans", but is still all about high-energy, powerful, guitar-oriented punk-rock.
Angular rhythms, hyperactive vocals, ... it must be Kimono Draggin'.

Who needs Champions if you've got Dudes. "We Are The Dudes" is the latest Kimono Draggin' release and it needs your attention.
