The legendary FENCE COLLECTIVE of Fife come Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club for a special show.
In 1995, St Andrews born singer-songwriter Kenny Anderson (a.k.a. KING CREOSOTE) was very much alone. His bluegrass band, the Skhoubie Dubh Orchestra, was in tatters, and he was left with only a digital 8-track and CD burner for comfort. Fast-forward to 2008, and the man ﬁnds himself as leader of The Fence Collective – a loose-knit amalgam of singer-songwriters, musicians, bands and electronic artists, who collaborate with one another on record, as well as on stage.
The albums he’s recorded in the past 5 years for Domino (Kenny & Beth’s Musakal Boat Rides, and Rocket DIY) and Warners (KC Rules OK, and Bombshell) have brought him to a large international audience. He’s a man who is very much loved, by music lovers and musicians alike.
The first-lady of Fence, H.M.S. GINAFORE is the pseudonym of Anstruther born singer-songwriter, Jenny Casino.
She writes incredible sea-shanties about small town life, with lyrics that won’t leave you alone for the rest of your days. One of the more reluctant performers on Fence, a healthy swig of port or gin is enough to transform the “shy” assistant curator of the Anstruther Fisheries Museum into the bawdy balladeer HMS Ginafore, and her rare shows are a must see.
Twin sibling to Lone Pigeon, PIP DYLAN’s acoustic country sounds set a new acoustic standard for all Fencers to strive towards. Swap Beatles and Barret influences for Wainwright and Dylan, and you might get some idea of what twins can achieve thru’ sheer accident of birth.
UNCLE BEESLY is mostly a bass player but is sometimes known for his bizarro country-punk guitar playing with elmo rockers Gummi Bako. He has played with many Fence luminaries…too many to mention here but suffice to say – they were big and they were luminous.
