Riskee and The Ridicule formed in Kent, The Garden Of England, when frontman Scott Picking, aka Riskee, happened upon his musical counterpart in Jimbo Aglony on lead guitar. The rhythm section soon arrived with David Thomas (Bass) and Matt Verrell (Drums), plus recently adding Jordan Mann on guitars and backing vocals and Riskee and The Ridicule became a powerhouse of a genre-mixing-pot.
Combining politically-charged Grime, hardcore and dash of pop-punk, the band found that they were able to collaborate and produce something fresh without ever sounding confused.
Karl Phillips & his 6 piece band from the Midlands deliver a completely original mashup of ska, punk & grime with a hip-hop nod at luminaries like The Clash, The Specials & Mike Skinner. Karl's refreshingly honest lyrics test the boundaries of the human mind and the English etiquette, coming from a place most people can relate to but never dared to mention! Now backed by the Rejects to bring a new bounce and skank to the party!
