Named after a Nigerian state capital, Benin City is Theo Buckingham on drums, Tom Leaper on tenor sax, and Joshua Idehen on rhymes. Joshua met Theo Buckingham at a squat party. They struck up a loud friendship and decided to make more organised noises together. They drafted in Tom to arrange their babble into music. Voila! As a band, they've been played and championed by Jon Kennedy, Jon Hillcock, Scroobius Pip and Eddy Temple Morris (XFM) Edith Bowman and Tom Robinson (BBC6). They have gained accolades and fans for their energetic live performances, having supported Soweto Kinch, VV Brown, Moko and Youngblood Brass band.
