1) King was an England-based band which was formed in 1983 after the break-up of ska revivalists the Reluctant Stereotypes of which Paul King (vocals) was a member. The remainder of King comprised Tony Wall (bass), Mick Roberts (keyboards), James Lantsbery (guitar) and ex-Members Adrian Lillywhite (drums). They made their debut supporting the Mighty Wah! and signed to CBS Records. Despite extensive touring and a sizeable following, their first three singles and Steps In Time sold poorly. The break came late in 1984 when they supported Culture Club and reached a whole new teen audience. “Love And Pride” was released early next year, and made number 2 in the UK chart, while the album went to number 6.

    Hey, be nice, dark_wisdom. It's not like the '80s King are the best looking guys in the world.

    I refuse to scrobble any artist with this name in order to avoid seeing those ugly ass bitches' faces at my library.

    Images should be based on the artist whose song tops the tracks chart and the tags, which in this case is the New Wave band, not which one might happen to have been active more recently.

    "There are three distint artists called King." Did you not actually bothering reading what's in the bio? There's over ten bands listed there. Are you seriously implying that only three are valid artists...?

    ....and this is why I hate it when a band choses a common, generic single (non-metal) word as a band name. Music's good though.
