Ooh Wallahwallah (1983)

The first longplayer of King Kurt, released back in 1983. A real unique album that brings you some hundreds hours of fun, if you don´ t play it at your own party! "Ooh Wallahwallah " shows you the other side of Psychobilly: electric bass & sax & a very special kind of humor. The highlights  are Gather Your Limbs, Zulu Beat, Do The Rat , Destination Zululand and Wreck-A-Party Rock.

Big Cock(1986)

"Big Cock" is another classic from one of the most successful Psychobilly bands ever. Like the forerunner this album contents couple of anthems and fan favorites. The fantastic voice of Smeg combined with the typical King Kurt sound makes this one another stand out. Highlights: Billy, Road To Rack`n´Ruin, Momma Kurt ,Horatio and Alcoholic Rat.

Live And Rockin´ (1989)

12 track album from the" Live And Rockin´ " series, which´s  best known for its poor quality and bootleg atmosphere. The CD release includes three more tracks. Highlights: She´s As Hairy, Billy, Banana Banana, Lonesome Train and Horatio

Destination Demoland (1990)

This is a 12 track compilation of demo cuts, originally released on Link Records back in 1990. The album was distributed nearly three years after the band´s first split. Solid album, but not as spectacular as their regular early vinyl releases. Highlights: ´67 Heaven, Stomp, Momma Kurt, Zulu Joe and their unforgettable interpretation of Bye Bye Baby.

Poor Man´s Dream (1994)

The legend of the rat continued in 1994 and the band released another album, this time on Demon Records. Most of the fourteen tracks have got some Country / Hillbilly roots, but they were all refined with the band´s  usual blend of RnR, wild attitude and humour. Simply great stuff. Highlights: Train Kept-A- Rollin´, Too Much Of A Good Thing, Friends, Hey Mister Bartender and Howdy- We´re Your Neighbours!.
