The King Blues Overview


Information

The King Blues are a political band accredited for fusing ska and folk together with influences from punk rock and hardcore punk. They originate from London, England. Tariq Ali described the band's sounds as 'rough, radical music that should unsettle the rulers of this country. A new generation of musicians are challenging war-monger politicians and their courtiers'. Influences include Public Enemy, The Clash, The Specials, Black Flag and Minor Threat. Their third full length album, "Punk and Poetry", is released on the 17th of April this year. Itch describes the music as 'a mixture of reggae, hip hop, folk, doo wop, punk rock..'
