IMPERIAL LEISURE

Imperial Leisure are a North London band born from high school friendship and a huge admiration of great groups, both close to home, such as The Specials and Madness, and from further afield, such as The Beastie Boys, Jurassic 5 and Rage Against The Machine.

Playing their own particular take of rock steady, party hip hop and mosh-pit inducing punk, the band have been conquering crowds across the UK, playing festivals such as Glastonbury, Camp Bestival and Bestival, not to mention (illegitimately playing in the car parks at) Reading, Fruitstock and LoveBox, as well as springing spontaneous guerilla gigs on unsuspecting but hugely appreciative crowds in shopping centres, parks and on beaches around the UK. Previous support appearances have included Roots Manuva, Gym Class Heroes, Ugly Duckling, the legendary Sugar Hill Gang, Sway, and Skinnyman.

The band unleashed their debut album, The Art of Saying Nothing to the world in 2009. Featuring twelve tracks that manage to encapsulate all things British from ska and punk roots, to tales of modern day drinking and debauchery. It’s the consummate companion to a lazy day spent in a beer garden, and as refreshing as that first taste of a chilled pint of lager.

“Imperial Leisure stew up hip-hop, ska and punk into invigorating party music…purpose-built to send festivals into a deranged dancing sweat.” –Q

“It’s impossible not to get caught up in it all, the sense of fun seeping into everyone involved like a shot of serotonin.” - KKKKK, Kerrang!

KARL PHILLIPS AND THE MIDNIGHT RAMBLERS

When is a band not a band? Perhaps when it’s made up of disparate members whose combined musical heritage touches on orchestral, jazz, ska and, er, grime. Moving outside the M25 to Wellingborough may not sound like the first step on the MC career ladder. But, after escaping the Orbital (and gaining a few feet in height) Karl Phillips soon began making his move on an urban scene typified by garish chains and faux Ray Bans much to the distaste of his peers, many of who felt the full brunt of his wit.

Now, what started as “a mock up band, put together for a laugh” is on the road to success with a crossover sound referencing dubstep, hip-hop and punk. This almost accidental success looks set to continue on its all-conquering mission to call a spade a spade, an arsehole an arsehole and a pompous twat a pompous twat. Refreshingly honest, hilariously irreverent and always up for a pint, Karl Phillips and The Ramblers are one in the eye of an overtly arrogant scene, and an anti-thesis to skinny jeans. But don’t ask them about it, they’re just having a laugh.
