A new LP from former Babyshambles member Adam Ficek’s side project arrives in December.
‘British Plastic’ is the third album by Roses Kings Castles (RKC), recorded in Ficek’s makeshift home studio and set for a December 5 release through his own label, The Sycamore Club.
Ficek says of his ‘underground’ work: “I wanted to make something that had the raw power of the stuff I was hearing and DJing in the clubs, yet still incorporated the ragged guitars and songwriting of British beat music. When Babyshambles ended, I put the small amount of money I had into creating a humble space giving me the freedom to create the music that was in my head, I spent a long time in a grimy garage learning how to record, produce and stop the damp from permeating my lungs.”
In the lead-up to the December 5 release of ‘British Plastic’, RKC are performing seven shows across the UK, starting later this month:
25 – London, 93 Feet East
26 – Cardiff, Buffalo Bar
28 – Birmingham, The Ballroom
30 – Derby, The Victoria Inn
2 – Newcastle, The Cluny
4 – Darlington, Seen
5 – Chesterfield, The Battery
