This is The King Is Dead… That is …Long Live The King!
King Candy likes his music “shiny, sweet, and so good to eat.”
The King is Dead, Long Live the King by A Western Front was the first album released by Quagmire in 1992. It marked the beginning of the new “in-sound”. This was not AWF’s first album, but it was their most twinkly to date, which accounts for something. Featuring the songs Heavens Ocean, Immanuel’s Mother, Burn the Pop Star Down, Pump The Lemon Barrel, and Hair, the album is a cornucopia of healthy fruits, vegetables, nuts, and other harvest foods. It’s pure power-pop. Listening to the King is Dead is like someone jamming lit sparklers into your speakers and you don’t give a shit… because it’s all part of the show!
