King Lagoon's Flying Swordfish Dance Band - The Golden Lagoon

King Lagoon's Flying Swordfish Dance BandDe achtkoppige King Lagoon's Flying Swordfish Dance Band is het geesteskind van de in Brighton in het Verenigd Koninkrijk gevestigde vocalist en multi-instrumentalist Rodrigo Kerr. In plaats van een doodgewone biografie van de band creëerde King Lagoon's Flying Swordfish Dance Band op hun website een legende over King Lagoon, heerser over een tropisch paradijs in een parallelle dimensie: "The realm of King Lagoon hosts many diverse and exotic lands and small islands where the royal flotilla races and cruises to the sounds of the King's favourite bands. This dimension is similar to ours but many things can work quite differently and unexpectedly. A messenger from King Lagoon, a small golden bird with 5 wings, iridescent plumage and large expressive eyes, made contact with Rodrigo in 2010 to ask him to create a band…. Whether it was to simply open up interaction or for a more dramatic reason, the exact motive remains unknown. Appearing at a window, having to be released from the inside of a drum or coming out of a tap, a computer screen or a saxophone, the bird appears to Rodrigo – alone or at band rehearsals - to drop off little parcels of exotic flavoured treats. Rodrigo and the other Flying Swordfish eat these tasty delights, and as they taste the other-dimensional flavours, more becomes known to them about the realm of King Lagoon, as well as inspiring music and ideas for the performance.".
