Created by members of some of Sacramento’s hardest working local bands, Korean Fire Drill (because Chinese was already taken), also known as KFD, started off as 3 guys jamming out their first 3 songs on the first day they met. Coining the band’s name along with the motto HALFASS IS BADASS, KFD had immediately and unknowingly set out to become California’s go to Comedy Hard Rock act.
KFD released their debut, full length album, rightfully titled Halfass Is Badass in 2014. Every song has the appearance of an excellent “rock out” song until you actually look at the lyrics and see what they’re really talking about; songs about temples to simply damaging your manhood in your zipper.
KFD is getting ready to release their sophomore, self produced, album More Badass Than Half Ass, featuring 8 explosive and diverse originals, 4 fantastic covers/remakes, 12 skits, and 1 secret track, all complete with artwork to fit by the band as well. Leading the charge, unexpectedly, is their Hard Rock charged rendition of Tupac and Dr. Dre’s “California Love“. Once again, not realizing they’re doing it, KFD is about to embark on conquering the U.S and beyond. KFD is always a very upbeat, powerful, and party filled band great for stages large and small.
I had the opportunity to do a phone call interview with Lydia, the bands newest member and overall bad-ass bassist. She is a very down to earth and laid back person to talk with. I had a great time discussing with her the bands new album, musical influences, and of course, party tips!
Hope you enjoy the interview!
