It is the summer of '69 and Joni Mitchell is living in a cave, on a beach, on the Island of Crete. She has recently split from her lover, Graham Nash and finds consolation in the arms of a hippy called Carey.
They spend the summer drinking Raki at the Mermaid café, while she is writing her seminal album 'Blue'.
This album became the soundtrack to the lives of many people, Al Steele from The Korgis being one of them. Al and his family also spent a summer in Crete and on a pilgrimage to Matala beach, he was suddenly struck with an overwhelming sense of Deja Vue.
Meanwhile 5000 miles to the West, Joni has a vivid dream and is transported back 55 years in time - and still it seems like yesterday.
Marley Davidson, a pioneering musician from Scotland, brought a chord sequence and chorus melody to The Korgis. With the Joni story in mind, we set about writing the other part of the story over the original. The result was immediately both gorgeous and other-worldly... a term often used to describe Marley's music.
Here is Matala moon, our tribute to the original other-wordily pioneering musician, Joni Mitchell.

Snippets from Kartoon World reviews

‘Kartoon World’ is the first proper studio album since 1992. And it marks a quantum leap forward in terms of the band’s musical and lyrical scope. We may indeed live in a ‘Kartoon World’, but this album is a monument to the enduring power of love and music, Korgis style. ****½” - Pete Feenstra

— Get Ready To Rock

Every detail has been thought of for the release - we have downloads, CDs, Deluxe CDs, Vinyl - it’s a collector’s dream, but it definitely makes for a sumptuous package and says something about the confidence the band feel about this release - a confidence that is well placed because Kartoon World is an instant classic. Every track is a winner, perfectly born and grown in the studio and minds of The Korgis! 5/5 from us!” - Michael Kennedy

— Welsh Connections

This is a stunning comeback album, after 30 years, from this band. Highly recommended by me and one that should be in your music collection as soon as possible.” - Chris Black
