"...Despite the name of the album, Roadhouse Party is not a typical party album, but certainly an album for the road! With great guitar licks, long solo's and above all fine blues tunes!..."

   - Mr Blue Boogie, Billybop Magazine, Belgium


"The aptly titled new Kimon & The Prophets album truly is a "Roadhouse Party", featuring 11 originals and 5 covers (of songs from Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Nick Lowe/Elvis Costello, and Don Henley). The originals have a really fun funky blues vibe going on that’s a departure from previous Kimon albums, but in a lot of ways the whole band seems more comfortable on this album then any of the previous ones I’ve heard.

While personally I feel five cover tunes was a bit of overkill, this is definitely my favorite Kimon album, and the case could be made that how could you have a true "Roadhouse Party" without some covers.

Also included with "Roadhouse Party" is a DVD with some music videos and acoustic performances. I have not had a chance to view the DVD yet, but it’s pretty cool that they decided to give you more for your money (as if a 16 track CD wasn’t enough)."

"Kimon is a singer, songwriter, player and producer handling bass, guitars and keys on Twice A Day In Japan, which is his third release. Performeing in bands and working as a solo artist, his latest twelve track CD is radio friendly, alternative rock, heavy on guitars with an experimental edge. Kimon's observational lyrics are well written and his arrangements are colorful. Kimon utilizes a variety of techniques and textures to give all of his songs a full band feel and sound. 'In My Head' and 'Everybody Else Does' are the opening tracks, both feature infectious hooks with energized instrumentation and robust vocals. As the CD progress Kimon explores more styles and expands the guitar solos. 'No End In Sight' is a prime example of subtle changes in mood and tempos with more of a focus on the guitar. Twice A Day In Japan is a solid rocker!

Feb. 2006: "Twice A Day In Japan is a powerpop disc crammed with strong singable melodies, catchy guitar hooks with lyrics to match, and attitude reminiscent of Butch Walker. This is an effective and inoffensive record that won't push any of your buttons, but doesn't back off the party music value. If you're looking for edgy, go elsewhere. If you're looking for PG-13 hoots and hollers, Kimon's your boy."

"I think Discorporated will be one of the surprise hit albums of the year. The lyrics are smart and thought out and the riffs and rythms really drive it home. And I'm not the only one who feels that way! The album charted as the 2nd most played cd at our station this month."

"He's been road-hardened, paying his dues so to speak for a long time in miscellaneous bands and countless little dives along the eastern seaboard," says Pacific Time president Curtis Urbina. "I think that's part of what accounts for his pissy demeanor. Regardless, we are very pleased to be able to introduce Kimon to a national audience."

Already receiving favorable early response from a number of radio personalities around the country, Discorporated will be supported by an extensive radio promotion campaign and press marketing launch, as well as various performances as part of a multi-city promotional tour this spring.

Dissent is un-American, says one side. Dissent is patriotic, says the other. However, one thing that both sides can agree on is this: Dissent set to music is often boring, sanctimonious, and unconvincing.

One notable exception is a singer-songwriter out of New Jersey named Kimon (pronounced "kee-mon"). He takes a bitingly forthright analysis of all that's wrong in the world today, wraps it up in lyrics chock-full of nicely turned phrases and clever rhymes, and sets it to bluesy rock 'n' roll, and what do we get? Dissent you can tap your toes to...

...whatever the topic, you can be sure that it's handled in a wry, satiric manner without getting more preachy than is strictly necessary. So, when you're picking out music to bring to the next WTO protest, consider leaving the Rage Against the Machine at home and bringing Kimon instead.
