THE FUTURE OF ROCK 'N ' ROLL?
~ King Automatic's In The Blue Corner ~
As we are now nearing the 2nd decade of the 21st century, it is time to ask an essential question:
Where lies the future of Rock 'n' Roll?
Will we recycle old ideas ad infinitum - 3 chords boom chica boom, mimick the past and kneel and pray at the alter of Jerry Lee Lewis, The Ramones and the Cramps or will we introduce new musical concepts into Rock 'n' Roll, embrace the future and venture into unsafe yet exciting waters?
Will we limit ourselves by sticking to the musical traditions of the Western hemisphere only or will we seek inspiration across the four corners of our globe and make truly trans-global Rock 'n' Roll?
It is time to expand the horizon and to seek out new territories - it is time to evolve and if that evolutionary process takes the shape of King Automatic...well that's all the better.
This Gentleman finds inspiration in Jamaican Rocksteady, Rhythm 'n'Blues, Bebop and the tribal drumming of West Africa to mention only a few of the ingredients of a truly exotic musical cocktail.
In addition to the musical diversity to be found in his music, King Automatic has also freed Rock 'n' Roll from the lyrical cliché of: "I picked up my baby in a '59 De Ville, we tore through the city seeking cheap thrills". There is actually real songwriting at play here which adds a welcomed layer to the music we all like to drink, dance and make babies to.
Starting out in the mid-1990's as the drummer of the legendary French Punk band Thundercrack, King Automatic took a radical turn at the beginning of the new Millenium and introduced a new dimension to the sound of one-man bands.
He began to sample and loop organ, guitar, harp and percussion sounds live on stage to create a truly sonic soundscape – close your eyes and you will swear you are listening to an orchestra.
With his new album "In The Blue Corner" now appearing on Voodoo Rhythm Records, he has taken his vision to the next level and has created an even more diverse record than his previous two - he has once and for all left behind the shackles and confinements of traditional Rock 'n' Roll and his journey has led him to exciting places - mesdames & messieurs join King Automatic on his unique odyssee and explore the Rock 'n' Roll of the world!

You heard about Rock'n'Roll Music right? You heard about Electro Trash as well right? And you are bored of it right? We've got something very special for you... Imagine you mix up ultra wild Trash Rock'n'Roll such as the Billy Childish stuff or the Retards and mix it up with Devo and Kraftwerk and then with the bluesy tunes of Slim Harpo, and you add beats by a Farfisa Organ..
What do you have now? You don't know right, cause you're a Nut Ball... But.... we don't know either... we just know that this music presses the shit out of your ass like nothing before.
Jay aka KING AUTOMATIC was the Drummer of THUNDERCRACK and the one and only fantastic SQUARES, As KING AUTOMATIC he is playing all the instruments by him self... not only on the recordings, no! Also LIVE... This is the NEW WAVE IN RAW BLUES PUNK... up front wild and trash as fuck... and he's from FRANCE the country who gives you the Splash 4 or No Talents or VOLT... what do you want more?  Over the years now KING AUTOMATIC did play hundreds of shows in Europe from London down to Roma, from Paris over to Berlin, Switzerland France and and and Give KING AUTOMATIC a chance and let him X-Ray your brain; he is one of the most powerful and bluesy Trash One Man Band in the world!!!

FRENCH 'UNE HOME' GARAGE PUNKER AND RUDE BOY ORCHESTRA GOES EXOTICA FARFISA MARRACAS FUZZ GUITAR ROARING DRUMS AND A LEG FULL OF RHYTHM N BLUES

The setting : a nightclub in the tropics. The walls and seating covered in midnight blue velvetan albino tiger shark loops around a room-sized aquarium. What would you hear playing on the jukebox? Deconstructed blues, basement exotica wasteland rocksteady and Cuban sounds from outer space. Lorraine Exotica is King Automatic's 4th album - and without a doubt his most musically versatile record to date. He summons musical style from all four corners of the globe, his vocals are as self-assured as never before, his trademark live sampling and looping techniques are in place yet on Lorraine Exotica, there is a far greater diversity of flavours and shadings to be explored. Lorraine Exotica is a classic rock 'n roll record with a dash of pop sensibilities and more than just a hint of multi-ethnic influences.The end result is hypnotic, tribal and utterly danceable. Marc A. Littler (Slowboat Films)

The King goes Exotica !!! inspired from tours trou the South of America and the East Of Europe the King took a big sniff of their Folk Music and mixed it up with his very own Unique AUTOMATIC SOUND , we can say the King is Todays One of thee best and Most Breathtaking (everybody who saw him live knows what im talking about) and Unique DANCE ONE MAN BANDS he mixes up French YEYE Garage Beat-Punk with Rude Boy Jamaican Rocksteady, Rhythm n Blues Exotica and Trash Rock'n'Roll.... how can you get wrong with that? Born in the East of France but the Native Roots are in the Ukraine the King use to play in such bands as THE THUNDERCRACKS the SQUARES and this is his 4th Album on Voodoo Rhythm records
On this album he tells his Ukrain Root Story in 'All crossed out in red ' or in 'La vampira del Raval' jumps into a Latino Roots 'What's your poison' is classic Automatic Garage and the Killer 'Lorraine Exotica' or 'En passant par la Lorraineis' is new Breed Rocksteady Exotica !!!
