King of the Slums + SPIRIT:level Live Music & Concerts

king_of_the_slums__spiritlevel


King of the Slums are probably the most ‘under the radar’, elusive and important band to come from Manchester. Grab this rare chance to see

They started up around 1985 in the Hulme, area of Manchester but never considered themselves a 'Manchester' band. A distorted electric violin was used throughout early recordings, along with guitar, bass and drums and they continued developing this sound throughout their initial singles and classic first album Barbarous English Fayre which received widespread acclaim. Following a switch to Midnight Music their second album ‘Dandelions’ also received favourable reviews in the music press. In 1991, following their 3rd studio album‘ Blowzy Weirdos’, they fell out with record companies, management and each other and disbanded - despite being considered as a vital live act and on the brink of a US tour.

A full brand new album ‘Manco Diablo’ was released on June 8th 2017. The date occurred on the same day as a UK general election with the band stating that they wished to ‘bury bad politics’.

One year to the day the follow up album ‘Artgod Dogs’ was released. A stunning collection of tracks featuring the familiar ferocious violin sound combined with observational kitchen-sink narrative vignettes

King of the Slums are elusive and kind of like it that way. Interviews are rarely given. Songwriter and singer Charlie Keigher states “I have always found talking about the music, an irrelevant after event, which has nothing to do with the music. Everyone in the band does it for the music. The music is too important to us to undermine it with post rationalism. It is our art. We cannot change that art with more words. We paint our musical pictures, anything else after that is not really a relevant issue. We are all too busy to indulge in after the event conversations.”

This scheduled performance will encompass tracks covering all of their wide back catalogue. Grab it with both hands - it’s a rare chance to see them before they flee back into the Mancunian shadows once more.
