KAOS

KX actually 'inspired' a whole movement. when they came out in 1988, right dead center of 'hair band hell', they were doing drop-d tuning, prog elements and beatles-ish harmonies. NO ONE was doing that at all at the time. i read countless articles with the popular rock bands of the day who were literally praising KX. now, flash up a few years to about 91or 92...think about how many bands use the drop-tuned, riffy, harmony approach. ALICE IN CHAINS has admitted to ripping off KX (and how could they deny it...they started out as a 'hair band')...STP, SOUNDGARDEN, and MANY others borrowed heavily from the KX style and got rich while KX stayed practically un-noticed commercially. i remember doug in RIP responding to a question about how he felt that so many bands were basically getting rich off of 'thier' sound...his response was "...it's nice to be appreciated, and it's an honor to be considered a positive influence on someone...but where's MY million dollars?"...haha

don't mean to ramble...i just truly LOVE this band!
