Biography

The King Blues were a ukulele punk rock band from London, England, credited for fusing ska and folk together with influences from punk rock and hardcore punk. 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, was released on 17 April 2011. Lead singer Jonny "Itch" Fox describes the music as 'a mixture of reggae, hip hop, folk, doo wop, punk rock.'
