Some reviews some people wrote:
King Kananga - "Three piece grungy number 'King Kananga' from Huddersfield opened the night with an awesome developed set. A raspy-voiced front-man delivered hook filled choruses and a confident performance. Edgy rhythm changes, hard hitting yet quirky riffs and driving drums gave the band a slight Queens of The Stoneage feel. A truly professional band, even a string repairing minute was filled with some drum and bass jamming"
From Surface Unsigned Festival
"King Kananga - Although new to the rock scene , King Kananga are quickly making a name for themselves, blending Grunge, Punk, Metal and straight ahead rock, they are worthy of the hype."
