Finally, COVID has forced a reschedule of the 2021 gig in London which is now set for September 24, 2021.
Cherry Red Records has released Everything Changed 1991-1995 5 CD Box Set, delivering every little bit of output from the mighty ‘Maker on the Chrysalis label. This includes Eat Yourself Whole, Sleepwalking, In The Best Possible Taste, and a host of EPs and B-sides.
And keep your fingers crossed for a vaccine because a 2021 Live Date of Kingmaker 4AD has been announced on the Kingmaker’s Facebook page. They’ll be playing the entirety of Eat Yourself Whole.
Lots of videos have surfaced, thanks in no small part to John Andrew and his personal library. So, I’ve embedded the ones I’ve found on a page which I have creatively titled “Videos” Go on, click it.
Thanks to Mark Spencer for sending these along. Anyone remember these gigs?
Kingmaker are back in action… sort of. A few months ago I got an unexpected recording from John Andrew of Armchair Anarchist, recorded this year by a group entitled Kingmaker MMX – the 2010 version of the band, absent of Loz Hardy.
The Kingmaker MMX lineup is as follows:
John Andrew – Drums
Myles Howell – Bass and accoustic gutar
Mike Wright – Vox and acoustic guitar
Josh Hubbard – Guitar (from another Hull band – The Paddingtons)
Phil Keech – keys
Bruce Hitchcock – sax
The track was released in September on the compilation Electio Pop. Go ahead and click the Play arrow below to give it a listen.

You can catch Kingmaker MMX live in Hull on December 11, 2010.
Hey everyone – I know it’s been a while (5+ years, but who’s counting?). I decided to move the site over to a WordPress format for easy updating and interaction. There is some new news on the way so stay tuned.
