Kentucky Knife Fight

Kentucky Knife Fight

Kentucky Knife Fight's music evokes images of smoky bars where wood paneling lines the walls, rooms and worlds covered in shadow and stained with liquor. The St. Louis five piece create songs about desperate people doing desperate things in places they shouldn't be. But the worlds they sing about aren't all dark. They have songs about living in the moment, teenage recklessness, that freedom you feel at the wheel and of course... sex. All of this built by a thick framework of riffs and rhythms that are rough and raw around the edges. There is a seductiveness to their music that draws you in while the driving bass and drums force you to move. If there is a jukebox at the end of the universe you will find Kentucky Knife Fight between The Stooges and Tom Waits. 

“Imagine the Replacements suffering through sweltering Midwestern summer nights instead of cold Minnesota winters, and infused with a little less punk and a little more dirty twang..."
~Christian Schaeffer , River Front Times

"The Replacements and The Stooges shoot dice in tuxes against the swankiest abandoned building in town."
~Brian Baker, CityBeat

“KKF exhumes the shriveled-up corpse of ‘70s punk, cuts it open, and stuffs it full of swaggering rockabilly rhythm. For good measure, it throws in a touch of honky tonk."
~MP Johnson, Razorcake
