LOS ANGELES — Proving once again that cleverly orchestrated publicity stunts are indeed an effective means to gain coveted media attention, popular alternative rock outfit from the U.K. The Kooks were the beneficiaries of a saturation of coveted coverage on the Los Angeles-based music & culture website “Los AnJealous.” Beginning with publishing the initial announcement on May 16 of The Kooks intentions to play small, free acoustic busking sets at local landmarks on May 20, the popular website went on to follow with what can only be described as a carpet-bombing campaign of “posts” on May 20, May 21, May 22 and May 23.

It was not known at press time if the website received any financial remuneration in exchange for the pervasive Kooks coverage, however it would not be unwarranted given the amount and quality of coverage delivered to its vast, much sought-after readership.
