Dreamed up as a way for 3 friends to hang out, flesh out some ideas that might not work in their other projects, and hang out some more, Kudrow is what happens when you realize that writing your own music is sometimes easier than being in a Replacements cover band...
The Brooklyn trio - Jeff Rosenstock (Bomb the Music Industry!, Pegasuses-XL) on baritone guitar and vocals, Mike Campbell (The Brass, Laura Stevenson and the Cans, Latterman) on bass, and Dave Garwicke (Thousandaires, Halo Fauna) on drums - have just finished their debut 7", a four song record of noisy pop laced with fuzzed out riffs, smart lyrics and hooks aplenty. From the opening punk salvo of "Commutilation!" to the epic build of the 6 minute "Brooklyn Pool", Kudrow crank out tunes that should appeal to the 30 something dude with too many Superchunk, Archers Of Loaf and Weakerthans records as well as the 14 year old "punk" down the street who just heard "El Scorcho" for the first time. We think they put together one of the best raw sounding 7"s we've heard in quite awhile.
