In the supposedly halcyon days of Oz Rock, young bands typically took a couple of albums to find their feet. They learned the crafts of writing and performing one song and one gig at a time.
Such days are supposed to be long gone but somebody apparently forgot to tell KISSCHASY because in their own small way they seem to have (re)traced that journey over the last five years. The band’s songwriter/singer/guitarist, Darren “Daz” Cordeux wrote their first album as a teenager. Now with the release of their third album – the aptly titled “Seizures” – he and his bandmates, Sean Thomas (guitar), Joel Vanderuit (bass) & Karl Ammitzboll (drums), have ripened into one of Australia’s most important young rock bands.
Even in a world of instant gratification some good things apparently still take time. “Seizures” is one of them.
Recorded in L.A in early 2009 with legendary indie rock producer Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Beck, Powderfinger, The Vines) and it sees Daz and his comrades finding their voice in the time-honoured manner of third studio efforts.
The title track ‘Seizures’ was penned by Darren as a letter to a friend who he describes as “not living life to the fullest because they were too afraid of the consequences.”
