The word feisty was probably invented for London based band, Koogaphone who release their latest single White Trash this month.

Lead singer, Julie Gravell, takes no prisoners with her succinct style of raucous abandon tinged with rock chick savvy. Together with the frenetic sound of band members, bassist Rachael Carter and drummer Matt Conyngham, the trio has built a worldwide following which other bands would sell their sisters for.

In 2008 they were awarded a PRS grant to perform at Canada’s NXNE North by North in June followed by a gig at Glastonbury.

Their sound is more Buzzcocks meets Janice Joplin than anything else, explains Julie.

“I was influenced by a lot of 70s and 80s stuff - The Buzzcocks and The Who as well as The Pixies and a dash of Aerosmith is all in there,” says the lady who named her band after a Polish telephone sex line.

“It was great Glastonbury again. Last time we played a 40 minute set on board a massive purple metallic pirate ship in the festival’s Midnight Carnival field. About three thousand people were chilling out below us. It was brilliant, an experience that every band wants.”

Koogaphone have recently completed their debut UK album, produced by Gareth Parton who is the genius behind the Foals, Pipettes and The Go! Team. The lead single 'Just Like me' is currently getting airplay on MTV Europe and can be seen on rotation on MTV 2 from August.

The band’s collection of early demo's, 'Fast, Loose and Lovely', was produced by Pat Collier of Wonderstuff, Primal Scream fame. It was released in Canada and North America following their appearance at NXNE two years ago.

Since then, Koogaphone have been busy gigging in Britain, Spain, Canada and Italy – they return to impress the Italians again in Spring and are preparing for a tour of Ireland – as well as juggling more unusual requests including being the ‘wedding band’ at the Isle of Wight’s Bestival when Jake Shears of The Scissor Sisters got married to himself in front of a mirror before hundreds of fans in an enclosed inflatable church.

“It was lots of fun, but then I’ve always been into the bizarre,” adds Julie.

Koogaphone debut album will be released worldwide on Sept 28th and in Italy Sept 29th.
