KING KURT + Graveyard Rats

7.30pm Friday 19th May, Bedford Esquires

UK Psychobilly Rock Band KING KURT make  welcome return the Bedford Esquires on Friday 19th May

Unless you really don’t know or have been sleeping under a rock for decades King Kurt are a psychobilly rock band from the UK. They formed in 1981 and although psychobilly pranksters King Kurt are best remembered for “Destination Zululand,” the rambunctious smash with which they stormed the U.K. chart in 1984, to recall them purely as one-hit wonders is to decry years of achievement — But even that only begins to tell the band’s story, for it wasn’t on cold, impersonal wax that King Kurt were at their blistering, mystifying best. It was in concert, where gigs became tribal gatherings, songs became rockabilly psycho chants, and haircuts were — well, let’s just say they were mighty peculiar, and leave it at that.
King Kurt’s reputation has never flagged and, if anything, has grown even wilder over the years!

Guest support come from Graveyard Rats

*Please note this is NOT a messy gig so you won’t go home covered in flour!*

Tickets priced £18 advance are on sale from Esquires Bar and Slide Records and available from Seetickets from 10am on Monday 6th Feb.
