King Creosote

King Creosote

King Creosote is the name used for current solo releases of the musician Kenny Anderson, formerly lead singer of Skuobhie Dubh Orchestra and Khartoum Heroes. To date, Anderson has released over forty albums.

In 1995 Kenny Anderson, then lead singer/songwriter for the scottish bands Skuobhie Dubh orchestra and Khartoum Heroes, launched his own label 'Fence' with his own solo project King Creosote. With a healthy cynicism of all things music industry related, KC set out to make home recorded music in as stress-free an environment as possible, and hunkered down in Fife for the long haul.

With a few titles released through local shops, and with brothers Een (Pip Dylan) and Gordon (Lone Pigeon) forming the beginnings of a fence collective. By summer 2000 Fence had taken over the running of a St. Andrews CD shop, had an extensive website up and running, and were packing out the local pubs once a fortnight. Collective member James Yorkston made sure that the Fence music came to the attention of labels like Bad Jazz and Domino, and the legendary Fence gatherings were soon on the move, and with a new found creative spirit, Anderson became one of Scotlands more prolific and respected songwriters.
