Kitchens Of Destruction's members came from Switzerland, Spain and Monmouthshire, but formed after meeting at a house party in Tooting, South London in 1986. They signed to One Little Indian two years later and released their debut album Love Is Hell in 1989. Their allusive, complex lyrics were groundbreaking – vocalist Patrick Fitzgerald sang about life as an unreconciled gay man in a way that was far from in-keeping with the then-trends for gay pop. KOD released their fourth and final album Cowboys and Aliens in 1994, a compelling swan song that features backing vocals from Katie Meehan and Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood has cited as inspiration for OK Computer. The band split two years later. This vinyl reissue serves as the first time Cowboys and Aliens has appeared on the format since it's original release.
