Feeling a bit camera shy


Kingsauce are an Elephant 6 based "novelty-pop" project from the NYC area, From 1994-1999, leader Richie Chodes played bass and keyboards for the obscure "Vince Mole and his Calcium Orchestra" with Apples in Stereo founder and childhood pal Chris Parfitt. Richie started to record simultaneously in 1999 as "Kingsauce", starting with a 7" vinyl EP on "Happy Happy Birthday to me" records. This was a lo-fi record consisiting of 3 songs. In May 2000, they released a 7" split single with the Plastic Mastery on the rare British "Obtuse" record label. Then, in August 2002, Kingsauce released their first full length cd on HHBTM records. After a change of labels, they released a 2nd full length cd "Cancelled" 5 years later in August 2007 on Little Pocket records.Their last release was "Chanukah Blues", a 4 song EP which was also released on Little Pocket records.

The music of Kingsauce draws from several influences but mainly 60's/70's pop/power pop, 70's AM radio friendliness, with a touch of 30's era vaudeville, often accentuated by jaunty piano. The lyrics are usully silly and tounge in cheek inspired by Randy Newman, Allan Sherman,etc..Kingsauce often tend to write alot about 70's pop culture, specifically forgotten 70's tv show and actors/characters from that time ("Hey Mr Kotter", "Jackie Earle Haley", "Hamburglar was a rebel", etc). They are hoping to start playing out live again in the spring of 2011.
