Album Notes
Written from the start to be delivered live, the music of Kenny Don't Care (KDC) is equally at home in the recorded format of their first album, Dollar Store Diamonds (DSD). Though not a concept album, these songs from the album's beginning to end create a cohesive flow that results in an interesting, compelling adventure that is sure to resonate as well with listeners on their various playback devices as they do with live audiences..

Starting with the hard-hitting Billy's Drums--a poetic account of a boy's challenging reckoning with the adult world--DSD continues with highlight tracks like the reggae tinged Helpless, wherein the lyric's "speaker" could well be Billy as an adult looking back on the turmoil of adolescence and the topsy-turvy world he has grown into--for better or worse.

Other standout songs on DSD are the near saga of Little Things, a document of what might be the absolute worst day ever that somehow works out well, and Fat Girls, a feminine viewpoint that considers how packages can be deceiving, how that package's content is ultimately far more important once the wrapper has been removed.

The adventure continues with People Don't Know, one of DSD's musically lighter tracks, which begins with a reminiscence of a life that never was due to the unpredictable nature of life. This song's opening lyric, "Stop, I want to do it again/Get it right this time" is the speaker's lament that second chances in life are rare, or sometimes simply impossible, and she is left wondering what might have been had circumstances worked in her favour.

DSD ends with the epic Madeleine, a true-story lyrical insight into the life (and death) of a French resistance fighter during World War II. This piano driven track is supported by occasionally roaring guitars--a mainstay of Kenny Don't Care's music--as well as sweet string arrangements complimenting this powerful lyric and melody.

For those that enjoy lyrical depth accompanied by strong, memorable melody, DSD will appeal. On the whole, Kenny Don't Care offers a unique and diverse blend of musical texture that demonstrates their unusual grasp and exploration of various rock-oriented genres, subtly underwritten by classical, metal, blues and other influences not typically found in most rock-oriented bands.

KDC is a Vancouver, Canada based band. They are currently completing their second album and rocking stages in their home town and beyond. As one industry insider puts it, “Kenny Don't Care is "A classic example of a rock band--great vibes, great energy. There’s a lot of passion reflected in this band!”
