Sumerian Kyngs (Punk)
August 18 @ 21:00 - 23:30
A COLLECTION HAS BEEN COLLECTED AND IS THUS:-
Mr. Steve sax Kyng met ANDY bass Kyng and were parts of The Red Snappers (amongst others) back in bad ol’ Berlin when the wall kept their noise in. Via musics, cities and seas they settled independently on Brighton where ROSS vocalizing n guitar Kyng was the new catalyst, loomin’ n growlin’ up from out of the Virginia swamps, cool and slow with plenty of precision, with a back beat narrow and hard to master… well, actually it was Brighton and from his involvement in experimental rock duo Original Gravity and other south coast mysterious science musics. And as Ross moved his bases to fair London town and projects beckoned; in stepped Tony to more than amply fill the void with growls n rumblings with dancing shapes supreme. Joined too by Trev on grinding pedal and swordy swift guitar. The machine ploughs on.
MONTY OXYMORON keyboards n sometimes drums n sometimes everything else Kyng keyboarding in the Damned and also alongside Captain Sensible with one of the great festival bands: Dr Space Toad Experience. So many projects, so much material.
HI CLIFF effects n lights, the glue and recordist Kyng, man mountain, hear his flanging, and feel the beat of his bodhran. Also performing as trance electro man Xanthus. Producing and recording is his other game. His is to add all the extra joy and fizz to the NOW LEGENDARY live performances, lending The Kyngs their unique retro lazer light, acid ‘n’ oil psychedelic live edge.
DAVE with the high hi hats. Founder of the LEGENDARY Johnny Moped, long time child hood musical buddy of Captain Sensible and has performed drum and bass duties for The Damned and Spacetoad and numerous others.
HONKIN STU harmonicas Kyng, a regular on the Brighton music scene playing with many and various. Wonderfully haunting, plaintive and grooving, topping off with staccato chugs and filling his way through live sets…and when the mood takes, dancin’ and a prancin’ with the crowd.
TREV guitar Kyng and of slick unit TNT bringing forth multi-textured sounds, snarls, licks and rhythms in rock god jackets and pants.
TONY G vocal Kyng ex of astounding cult band ‘The Unbelievables’ amongst other objektnik outfits. A sharp dressed man with a growl and a thrower of shapes sublime.
MICKEY guitars Kyng history shows him in The Pioneers with John Entwistle, with Steve Hyams of Mott The Hoople, Tim Rose, Mick Flynn, The Dubliners, Sisters Of Mercy, Phil Manzanera, The Wiseguys and so many varied others, a list too long
RICHARD drummer n percussives Kyng and also of Whimwise, Space Ritual and Inner City Unit with Nik Turner (Hawkwind), Here And Now, House Of Thandoy, The Dharma Bums, again others and a list too long.
THE HOBBIT accordian Kyng the lyrical Shires dawg, pumping and contracting, textural, soundtrack, undercurrent of the Sumerian Kyngs live sound.
MARC drummer Kyng has now sadly passed away, after a long fight with illness, but we feel it is good to keep a lovely man’s name up here…bless you MARC JENNER, never forgotten R.I.P.
