Be yourself, as yourself. There is no greater fulfillment, and no sweeter revenge.
Proudly gender and genre fluid, subversively spiritual and really, really groovy, these are songs of identity, positivity and defiance, inspired by the eclectic funk of Prince & Thomas Dolby, the lyrical honesty of New Model Army & Tom Robinson and the musical invention of St. Vincent and David Bowie. Imagine if Eddie Izzard formed a band with David Byrne, Herbie Hancock and Bootsie Collins, with Tim Burton painting in response to the music.
‘Quicksand’ Kerry JK has been lurking on the fringes of the music scene for over 25 years, in various guises. He ran the Great Escape Big Band, an anarchic 20-piece jazz orchestra featuring many players who went on to international careers, including members of the Haggis Horns. He was a member of Leeds goth ambassadors Zeitgeist Zero, whose John Fryer produced second album was championed by Mick Mercer. He even had an extended stint as the UK’s only performing drag escapologist, Helen Held (The Girl No Man Can Hold).
Kerry now lives with his wife and many cats in Northampton UK.
