King Kong, a rock band from Louisville, Kentucky, formed in early 1989 by Ethan Buckler, the original bassist in the band Slint. The band's first single, "Movie Star", features the entire Slint line-up, sometimes swapping instruments. King Kong's core line-up for many years was the trio of Buckler on guitar and vocals, Willie McClean (bass), and Ray Rizzo (drums).
Buncha Beans, King Kong's first album in five years, continues down this well-worn path, serving up more friendly, literate oddities without ever seeming too predictable.

When King Kong was preparing to record their next full-length LP, Kingdom of Kong, Buckler was growing tired of people analyzing the lyrics and concepts of each release. His decision was to write a record that wouldn't contain a story, so much as a motif, and that way the listener could dance to it rather than sit and be critical. Following the October 1997 release of the album, the band toured Europe. At the end of 1998, King Kong decided to go on hiatus. Throughout 1999, Buckler worked at Churchill Downs horse track and also had a full-time job as a dishwasher. Five years later, King Kong returned with Buncha Beans, which felt like a throwback to the band's early albums.
King Kong - Buncha Beans. King Kong has plied its awkwardly grooving tunes for decades now, entwined with the Louisville indie scene without resembling the other parts of it. They're the kind of band that regularly pops up as the antidote to the brooding and groundbreaking bands around them - think of Superchunk and Southern Culture on the Skids, or Screaming Trees and Beat Happening. They've got their ties (Will Oldham produces here), but they fit in by deflating the ambitions of their buddies
