First of all, it has that catchy, powerful start, a slap bass, something quite rare when it comes to indie rock. Then the song just explodes to a perfect combination of rhythm and guitar.. However, the lyrics are my favorite part. Being fans of The Kinks , The Kooks were excited by the prospect of recording at a studio started and run by their idols. You can't help but be inspired by making an album here," said Pritchard.

The band had been prolific songwriters during their two years on tour, and even considered making their sophomore effort a double album. However, tensions would occur due to bassist Max Rafferty. The band's issues with Rafferty eventually came to a head and he was fired on 29 January after the album's completion and before its release. Remarking on Rafferty's sacking, Pritchard commented, "In my opinion he's going through a lot in his life, and being in a band doesn't help that kind of stuff.

Rafferty's departure made the band consider splitting up, but they soon reconvened with Dan Logan , formerly of Cat the Dog , a fellow Brighton band that also shared management with The Kooks. Konk was released on 11 April and went on to debut on the UK Albums Chart at number one with first week sales of 65, units. The album was certified gold in both the UK and Ireland.

After initially promoting the album with Logan until September , bass duties for the remainder of the album cycle were taken over by Pete Denton, who had also previously filled in for Rafferty and would eventually become a full member of the band. Drummer Paul Garred would also be forced to abandon touring for three months in mid due to an injury to his left arm; [21] he was initially replaced on tour by Nick Millard formerly of Crackout [22] before returning.

Garred then left again in late , and Chris Prendergast, who had been the drummer for Kooks tourmate Kid Harpoon , joined in as both live drummer and band member during initial sessions for the next album.

AllMusic said with Konk , The Kooks "explores pop and rock in all their glory," [25] while BBC Music described their second album as "a little contrived with the recycling of old guitar lines and intros. In , responding to claims that he had left the band due to drug abuse, Rafferty insisted that the real reason for his departure was because he "didn't think Konk was very good, and I said that.

Konk isn't imbued with the sunshiny, carefree sound that its predecessor was infused with. The album seems, on the whole, a little contrived with the recycling of old guitar lines and intros.

It's almost as if they've said: 'Right, people liked this hook, this line, this intro; let's try and use it again'. To call Konk the sound of complacency is too cruel, but it is the sound of a band who don't seem as enthused and as ready to impress.

There are, however, some shining moments on the album. Mr Maker is a little barnstormer of a track; peppered with hand claps and slide guitar; it is the sound of a band enjoying themselves. Stormy Weather, despite having an intro which sounds like a detuned Sofa Song, is hugely likable with its refrain of ''It feels like love, love, love''.
