Biography

King Biscuit Time was the first solo project of Steve Mason, lead singer of The Beta Band.
1998 saw the release of his King Biscuit Time “Sings” Nelly Foggit’s Blues in “Me and the Pharaohs” EP on Regal. The No Style EP followed in 2000.
Post Beta Band, Mason was signed to No Style Records, an imprint of Alan McGee’s Poptones label. The single C I AM 15 (featuring Topcat) was released in September 2005, with the follow-up KwangChow and debut album Black Gold following in 2006.

Shortly after the release of Black Gold, Mason announced that he would not be making any more music. Thankfully he has gone on to release more records, initially under the name Black Affair and now as himself.

When I walk through the earth, I get stuck in the middle, I can't see your love, I don't know your love. Why won't you take me away? Take me a day, Keep on rising higher. Why won't you take me away?

    @IndiHobbz, yep this Steve Mason, main songwriter and vocalist - he's also released stuff under 'Black Affair' which is more kind of erm dirty sex electronica (?). I think he's patchy, but King Biscuit Time is some of his best post-Beta Band stuff :)

    black gold is as good if not better than anything the beta band did in my opinion.
