King Champion Sounds are an Anglo/Dutch band and the brainchild of Ajay Saggar (Dandelion Adventure, Donkey, The Bent Moustache).
Vocals and lyrics are taken care of by G.W. Sok (The Ex).
The seven piece line-up is completed by a stellar second guitar player, bass and drums (a rhythm section that Mark E. Smith would be proud of), and two horn players. The result is “a mix of The Fall, Can, Sun Ra, Captain Beefheart, Public Image Ltd, King Tubby. I love this band”, said Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore.
