The Slytones

The Slytones

With a sound that encompasses everything from schizophrenic fairground avant-pop and queasy skanking swamp-ska to crunching left-brain hard rock and mad scientist anti-funk, this twelve-legged creative force are simply one of the most inventive and mind-boggling bands to emerge from the UK in years. Formed in 2006 as a trio, these clown-faced fidgets from the sunny south coast have since expanded into a well-oiled sextet and are gleefully injecting some theatricality, colour and mischievous menace back into a British rock scene that too often chases its own tail to no avail. You have never heard or seen anything quite like them. That’s a promise.
