Nights At The Roundtable - Kitchens Of Distinction - 1992

Nights at the Roundtable with Kitchens Of Distinction and a track from their 1992 album The Death Of Cool, "4 Men".

<strong>Kitchens Of Distinction - Wildly influential band most people hadn't heard of.</strong>


I ran a track from an earlier Kitchens Of Distinction ep last year around this time and there's not a whole bunch more I can add, aside from the fact that Indie and Shoegaze were getting toeholds with audiences in the early 90's and Kitchens Of Distinction were at the forefront - bridging that nod to the 80's with heavy emphasis on synthesizers while exploring new avenues in the area of Indie and Electronica. Still, they were more influential among other musicians of the period than they were with audiences, certainly not with mainstream audiences in the U.S. - but they ultimately had something to say, even if it is being recognized some twenty years later.

Tonight it's a track off their 1992 album The Death Of Cool, which was released in the States on A&M. It failed to make much dent in the U.S. market but it did well in the UK and gave the band some hope they weren't chasing after something impossible. 4 Men is the second track on the album.

Maybe we'll look at the 90's this week. Some interesting stuff that may have gone overlooked.
