Biography

On leaving Collapsed Lung Jim Burke resurfaced as his “ ” alter-ego Sgt. Rock in 1998 with the disco stomp of ”Deeper’n’Deffer”. This featured on Fused and Bruised’s “Daytrip to Brisco”. Signed soon afterwards to Wiiija records, he released three singles and the album “Live the Dream” which the Melody Maker called - “Phat, funky and fun, fun, fun” and Wax mag claimed made them “Proud to be British”.

Since the winding down of Wiiija records Sgt. Rock began recording alongside long term accomplice DJ Scissorkicks under the name “Kicks & Rock”. He also released a few cheeky 7”s on his own imprint GROT, one of these being “No Skool” which caught the ear of Manchester-based -oriented label Splank! and was subsequently re-released a few years later in Febuary 2004. Sgt. Rock also released follow up ‘Are You Ready?’ on Splank!

A couple of years later Jim Burke reinvented himself as “Chap-Hop” phenomenon Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer.
