About this event

KING CREOSOTE in acoustic concert at FRETS , The Strathaven Hotel, on Friday 22nd April, 2022

A Short History of King Creosote

If you build a fence then you have to treat it, as any DIY buff will tell you. You have to make it durable; to help it help us weather storms. Fife's Kenny Anderson realised this when forming micro-label, Fence, in 1994 – and so he treated it, then treated us, with an alt-pop alter-ego: King Creosote.

Anderson has become of Scotland's most acclaimed and prolific, singer-songwriters: a squeezebox Casanova with a cosmic wordplay fetish, whose voice leaves gentle devastation in its wake. He was short-listed for 2011's Mercury Prize thanks to Diamond Mine, his sublime collaboration with Jon Hopkins.

Other key LPs in the KC canon include Kenny and Beth's Musakal Boat Rides (2003), Rocket DIY (2005), KC Rules OK (2005) Bombshell (2007), Flick the Vs (2009) and his live-only album, My Nth Bit of Strange.

In 2014, Anderson completed his first-ever film soundtrack for From Scotland With Love, a much heralded film that weaves Scottish archive film footage with KC compositions.

King Creosote released Astronaut meets Appleman in 2016 and continues to thrive creatively in cahoots with the Domino Recording Co.
