by Jason Lightner September 19th, 2014
Audio Kings of the Third World is a group who cut their teeth in my backyard — The City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, PA. Their four piece style is what many would call garage or stomp rock; a mixture of guitars, bass, simple percussion, and electronic noise designed to overwhelm the senses.
