Klark Kent Kontest

Klark Kent was a guy who put out an album in 1980 called Music Madness from the Kinetic Kid. The bio on the back of the LP cover says the name is pronounced "Klerk Kunt" in "the Welsh fishing village where his psyche first materialized". Kent wrote and performed all of the music on the record, but he certaily wasn't Dave Grohl, Prince, or even Billy Corgan. There are two songs in the player below, Don't Care and Ritch in a Ditch, taken lovingly from the LP with snaps, crackles, pops and hisses intact.

The first person who tells me what Klark Kent's real name is wins a couple of lame CDs I've culled from the collection. If you like the songs and want to download them, go here.

Stewart Copeland. Didn't even need google to answer that one! "Away From Home" is included on some Rhino 80's compilation.
