Kokomo/Kursaal Flyers: Guildford

John Tobler, New Musical Express, 28 February 1976

A VERY strange billing, Kokomo as support to the Kursaal Flyers. Now that seems to say something about relative popularity and the length of time it takes to become successful – Kokomo have been operating, in one form or another, since May 1973, while the Kursaals turned professional on January 1st, 1975. Both have just released their second album, and at this point, neither has made the charts in this country.
