Music Monday 23rd September 2019

I talked about these guys previously without actually mentioning them. This is the band I saw in London a couple of weeks ago, playing their very first show.

“How did you know about the show?” you may ask, and it’s a good question. I knew about the show because The Broken Kings consists of 3/5 of one of my all-time favourite bands, Fearless Vampire Killers. I’ve kept a close eye on their activities since FVK broke up three years ago.

It was so good to see the guys again - it was like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. FVK’s farewell shows were a messy business of tears and goodbyes and particularly not getting to say goodbye to all of them. These hugs were long overdue.

I hope The Broken Kings play many, many more shows in the future.
