Red Gallery is proud to present King Champion Sounds are an incredibly eclectic and exciting English/Dutch band, the brainchild of Ajay Saggar (Dandelion Adventure, The Bent Mustache, The Donkey) and featuring GW Sok of THE EX on vocals.
The seven piece line-up has a rhythm section that Mark E. Smith would be proud of... Best described (by Thurston Moore) as “a mix of The Fall, Can, Sun Ra, Captain Beefheart, Public Image Ltd, King Tubby. I love this band”.
The band formed early last year, for a one-off support in Amsterdam with, and at the request, of Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE, Stooges).
In the summer of 2013, after hearing recordings for King Champion Sounds’ debut album, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs asked King Champion Sounds to be the support act at YYY’s sold out Paradiso Amsterdam show.
The debut album is set to be released later this year on Louder Than War Records, more details to follow.
