KING CREOSOTE & BAND
In the early stages of his career, Anderson played in many localScottish bands such as Skuobhie Dubh Orchestra and Khatoum Heroes and in 1995 he launched the record label Fence Collective with Johnny Lynch where he began producing and releasing material under the moniker King Creosote.
In 1998 King Creosote made his album debut with “Queen of Brush Country” featuring the tracks “Fell The Way Down, Leslie”, “Homeboy” and “Piano Crushing Back”.
On many occasions Anderson has collaborated with Domino Records and Warner music on several releases. As a huge advocate for vinyl only releases, Anderson actively seeks to keep the precious format alive.
In 2007 two of his tracks “The Someone Else” and “King Bubbles in Sand” featured on the soundtrack for the British drama film “Hallam Foe”.
In 2011 Anderson was invited to play a couple of shows at SXSW festival in Texas, U.S. and later that year his collaborative album “Diamond Mine” with Jon Hopkins was nominated for both the Mercury Prize Award and Scottish Album of the Year.
For the 2014 Commonwealth Games Anderson created the official soundtrack for the tourist film “From Scotland With Love” which was later broadcast on the BBC.
This is Kenny’s 2nd visit to Mac Arts and we are thrilled to be welcoming him back.
