Kitchens Of Distinction

Profile:
Formed in Tooting, London in 1985/86 by Patrick Fitzgerald (vocals/bass), Julian Swales (guitar) and Dan Goodwin (drums). They took their name from a Hygena advertisement.

Playing powerful, melodic rock, often culminating in a magnificent crescendo of emotion amongst a glorious guitar racket.

KOD clashed Patrick Fitzgerlad's melodic voice, Dan Goodwin's monstrous drums and Julian Swales' thrilling guitar into some seriously beautiful music. Having four cleverly titled albums full of terrific lyrics and excellent production from master producer Hugh Jones (except their last), KOD made themselves popular with critics and an underground fanbase. Although not financially successful (due to poor label management) KoD continues to create new material as a band trough independent labels and solo projects - primarily Patrick's alter ego Stephen Hero.
