ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Like a golden retriever's first steps out of the ocean, listening to 'This Road' will give you the irresitible urge to shake it. On the hardwood at the Cottage Bistro the regulars call it 'getting jiggy'. And 'get jiggy' you will by just cranking up this latest offering from the Kingpins. This band has been filling dance floors for years, and at the same time filling aficionado's ears with some mighty fine tunes. Anchored by the classical voice, or more appropriately, voices of Big Hank Lionheart, the Kingpins have come out from under the covers to belt out a
well-crafted collection of originals written entirely by the band members. Treaded throughout this R&B tapesty are
personal and west-coast reflections, particulary 'The Yale' - a tribute to Vancouver's Home of the Blues, where the band is regularly featured.

From Steve Cross' slick slide work on 'Blind Date' to Steve Ranta's B3 break on 'Dealin' with the Devil', each of the players get time in the spotlight to show their chops. Just like their live shows, the songs here are driven by the solid bass and lyric lines of blues stalwart Jack Lavin with drummer Daryl Bennett, creating a foundation of rock-solid rythyms that you can tell the rest of the band have a damn good time building on. Check out Wayne Kozak and Jerry Cook trading sax riffs on 'Night Cat' backed by the Louisiana-laced trumpet of Terry Townsend.

The Kingpins are here to make you shake it, so keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on 'This Road'.

Rajah 21

This is a great album....an instant classic!
Dear Sir or Madam, This is a great album..an instant classic..it's a travelogue of spirituals...zydeco and demonic, ominous harmonica riffs. Jack Lavin, tunesmith extraordinaire is at his creative best here with sweet and soulful harmonies..encouraging his bandmates into a swinging cohesive groove.Check out Strollin' and you'll dig what I mean. We are each on our own road..as Lavin subtly suggests..a spirituality throught, yet PanDEMONium is a complete masterpiece of abandon. A most honest and engaging record with lots of great 'blow' harmony as the doo-woppers say. Truly the Hottest Brand from Vancouver's Kingpins. Rajah 21

Outstanding.....this will get your toes tapping
Have seen these guys quite often and they are a great live band. Very tight. If you get a chance to check 'em at the Yale in Vancouver or the Central in Victoria, you won't be disappointed.
