The King Blues

The King Blues appearing at this event

The name is somewhat misleading, as these Hackney boys do not so much sing the blues as deliver 'conscious rudeboy ska'. Fronted by the ballsy Jonny "Itch" Fox, the band take a raw, punk-rock attitude to ska, with autobiographical songs and 'a commitment to politics and resistance'. Their influences range from Public Enemy to The Clash to The Specials. But what makes this outfit so different is their blend of ska and punk is regularly accompanied by a ukulele!
