Kitchens Of Distinctions – Love Is Hell
Love Is Hell was the debut album by British alternative rock band Kitchens of Distinction. It is available on CD and vinyl.
While the album earned KOD comparisons to bands like Echo & the Bunnymen and The Chameleons, the guitar soundscapes created by Julian Swales and the passionate lyrics and vocal delivery from Patrick Fitzgerald gave KOD their own signature sound. The album also maintains a punkier sound than to be featured on the band’s later albums.
Their allusive, complex lyrics were ground-breaking – vocalist Patrick Fitzgerald sang about life as an unreconciled gay man in a way that was far from in-keeping with the then-trends for gay pop. Their Margaret Thatcher protest song, “Margaret’s Injection” also caused much controversy.
