Not so Kool

Words to chill the blood: Kool and the Gang are going after a 'younger audience':

"We have a couple of younger people in the band. We wanted to broaden our audience.

"People do get surprised as they expect us to be a dance band, but we are more than just that. If you follow the history of Kool and the Gang, we were an instrumental band, but when disco came along we needed to switch to that kind of music to stay involved and current.

We did a rap album, but I don't think people want to hear their fathers rapping."

Quite what they're intending to do to make themselves "younger-sounding" we don't know. We just know we wish they wouldn't.
