Kitchens Of Distinction Folly on Limited Edition Import LP

Kitchens Of Distinction returned in 2013 with the brand new studio album, Folly, their fifth album and first in 19 years. In Summer 2011 Patrick Fitzgerald asked Julian Swales whether he would like to work on some new songs together. With the constraints of distance, day jobs and family duties taken into account, things slowly started to come together. Dan Goodwin was invited to join in the fun and eventually ten songs loomed out of the mist. Ten new songs that sound not as a pastiche of a band 20 years on but, as Julian puts it, "like a new version sucked through time and space." The songs were recorded in Patrick's studio in Derbyshire and at Julian's studio in Brighton. The songs were mixed with Pascal Gabriel (Kylie, Goldfrapp, Inspiral Carpets, Ladyhawke) in April 2013.

Kitchens of Distinction were formed in London in 1986 and started and ended their career with a Single of the Week in the UK music press. In between they put out four albums and won the hearts and minds of a generation. Hit singles generally eluded them (the band's third single "The 3rd Time We Opened The Capsule" did however make it into the ‘NME Writers 100 Best Indie Singles Ever' list in 1992) but they fared better in the US with "Drive That Fast" hitting number one on the college radio charts over there.

A compact trio comprising of Fitzgerald (vocals, bass), Swales (guitars) and Goodwin (drums, percussion) they were known for their swirling maelstrom of guitar effects - coined in the press as like being a ‘sonic cathedral' – and Patrick's introspective and unabashed lyrics that often dealt with his own homosexuality. They were tagged with the genre ‘shoegaze' (UK) and ‘dreampop' (US) although, like many of their peers similarly defined, they never felt comfortable with either term. Their sound was inspired largely by their love of Joy Division, Cocteau Twins, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Echo and the Bunnymen and peers A R Kane and it went on to be heard in a new generation of bands like Interpol, Bloc Party, Editors and British Sea Power.
