King Creosote

We are delighted to welcome King Creosote (otherwise known as Fife’s Kenny Anderson) and his band for a first-ever appearance at ARC.

Last year’s Astronaut Meets Appleman album followed KC’s breakthrough record From Scotland with Love (2014) and his Mercury-nominated collaboration with Jon Hopkins,

Diamond Mine (2011), It garnered rave reviews pretty much across the board:

‘King Creosote’s finest hour yet’ - Mojo

‘His wrinkled brogue – warm, pithy, occasionally fluttering to a falsetto – is a thing of understated beauty in itself, framed in folk-shanty arrangements that make telling use of strings and bagpipes’ Uncut

‘Kenny Anderson serves up another gem & lives up to his reputation as one of our great lyricists’ - Sunday Times Culture

‘King Creosote is still finding ways to push himself and is totally justified purely for the creativity of the finished work’ - The Line of Best Fit

On Astronaut Meets Appleman, King Creosote is still upsetting apple-carts and dealing with the fallout, still appraising love and life, the moon, the stars; tide tables, bagpipe scores, zeros and ones; mathematics, ticking clocks and the beat of our hearts.

Many of you will be fans already. For those yet to discover KC, our advice is… buy the record (if you haven’t already), see the show, and get on board with one of the most singular talents to emerge from the Scottish music scene in decades.

This event will be on sale from Wednesday 24 January at 9am.
