Editorial Reviews

It's a standard rags-to-riches story. A bunch of mates form a group. They play the local Canadian bar scene for what seems like eons. They record a demo, get the ear of a major label, and score a significant coup when a maverick producer decides to step out of the superstar realm for a while to help some decent homegrown talent score a possible chart topper. Sure enough, the song goes gonzo, landing the lads on such significant media spotlights as Dick Clark's seminal American Bandstand. Soon, the tune is an FM radio staple, providing the boys with a high enough profile to tour the States. Unfortunately, their first foray into an American audience - a stint opening for Jeff Beck in Denver - is a disaster. Thus, the legend of The Kings and "This Beat Goes On/Switching to Glide" is born. This informal interview feature finds the four original members discussing the writing, recording, and reaction to the memorable combo callout, stopping short of explaining how fleeting fame actually was. Everyone is full of anecdotal joy, happy to revisit a time when they were on top of the world, no matter how short-lived (or short sighted of the fanbase). But again, there's not much more information to be had.
