"KOPEK"

Press comments:

"Just the shot in the arm necessary to kill off the Louis Walshe by products stunting the growth of Irish music today"
- The Guardian

“A gorgeous clutter of shouty choruses and machine gun riffs, their songs pull off the clever trick of seeming at once throwaway and anthemic. And the world it would appear, is starting to pay attention”
– Ed Power (Hot Press, Metro)

"Whoever signs them up will at least know they've picked a winner"
- Kevin Courtney (The Ticket)

A good old fashioned rock n’ roll band
- Terry Beagan (Promoter)


“There wasn’t one single band on the stage who didn’t deserve to be there but there can only be one winner of Global Battle of the bands”
- Steve Lillywhite (Producer - U2/ Rolling stones/ The Smiths)
- VARIOUS

Bio

In December 2005 Kopek were crowned winners of the Global Battle of the Bands in the London Astoria. The judges on the night were Steve Lilywhite (renowned U2 and Smiths producer) and rock n� roll veteran Glen Matlock (The Sex Pistols). After a blistering performance that ended Steve�s career due to hearing difficulties and left Matlock in need of a lower jaw, nobody could deny them their prize. Fresh from their victory the lads wasted no time kicking off on a world tour that peaked with an appearance in front of over 50,000 people at the Zocalo festival in Mexico. Since then they�ve been busy in studio perfecting their sound with music industry icon and producer extraordinaire, Danny Saber (Rolling Stones, Talking heads, Public Enemy). With their eyes now focused on a new prize � world domination � there will be no stopping the explosive energy of this 3-piece powerhouse returning to redeem rock n�roll in its truest form. Their single is due for release 1st June 2007 entitled 'STOP', and a debut album release planned for 2008 which the band are currently recording.
With a live show that would blow the shit out of an armored tank, Kopek are one of the must see 'live' bands of 2008
