Kenny Young and the Eggplants
Claiming to be from Brooklyn (but possibly from another galaxy altogether), Kenny Young and the Eggplants perform folk-and-roll songs about giant squirrels, aliens, scary bits of cheese, malevolent washing machines and other important topics. Plantastic Voyage, their sixth album, featuring songs for TV and film from a parallel universe, rocketed up college radio charts and won three Philby Awards for outstanding musical achievement.
“From out of left field comes Kenny Young and the Eggplants. This brilliant, whimsical Brooklyn band always leaves me with a lightened heart and a spring in my step.” -- Tom Robinson, BBC
"The Eggplants mix brainy, funny lyrics with a fine sense of what makes pop music wonderful." -- Dr Demento
“The naivete Kenny wears on his sleeve is genuine – think of an East Village Brian Wilson, without the money but still tilted in his own wacked-out way.” -- The Village Voice
