King Charles the Martyr
Inspired by the temperament of Mr. Charles Edward Malcolm Berry, King Charles the Martyr aims to reconstruct the Mississippi whiskey sounds of a forgotten generation. Corrupted by the wandering radio waves and phonographic debris of their previous lives, the dizzy lads of King Charles the Martyr pump out a rock and roll mash hardly recognizable to modern ears. The up-tempo melodies spilling from the fingers and feet of King Charles demand dangerous dancing and drunk dreaming. King Charles ain't peddling gold or diamonds - unconscious gyrations and illicit speculations are the currency this band trades. So, grab a warm bourbon and a pretty lady and come break a sweat with King Charles the Martyr.
