Browse through Kid Koala's silent comic strips and you'll find a five-panel illustration of a scratch so complex, the DJ loses his lunch and limbs on the decks. Nimble fingers understate Koala's ability to disjoin his appendages; on his first solo release since 2000's classic "Carpal Tunnel Syndrome," he effortlessly blends ragtime to bass music.
