Wait, Swingin’ Utters front man Darius Koski has a solo album out…? We did not know, but Koski released his debut “SISU” through Fat Wreck Chords on April 7. You can listen to the full album below.
As Koski’s biography on Fat Wreck’s website states, “the list of punk frontmen gone solo is an extensive one, and it seems to grow exponentially each year”, but apparently the Swinging’ Utters front man has been at his newest music release since 1999. That is when he wrote the songs “The Sound Of Waves” and “Contacts And Contracts“.
You can get “SISU” at the Fat Wreck store on cd, vinyl and digital.
