King of Boscombe

Pilchard King of Boscombe album artwork

King of Boscombe, released in 2018, was my first truly new piece of work in around three years. If you don’t count the flopped singles and compilations of old stuff, it’s my first decent body of work since I released my debut album, Amy, back in 2006.

As you can probably tell from the name, it draws inspiration from where I live; a seaside suburb of Bournemouth, Dorset, UK, called Boscombe. If you have heard of Boscombe, you probably know all about its bad reputation. Drink. Drugs. Violence. It all goes on in Boscombe… Apparently…

The reality is that Boscombe is much more than that. To me, it’s home and I love it so much, I decided to become King. That’s how it works, right? If God says you are King, you are King.

I’m an atheist so my personal God is me. Ergo, I am King. No, I don’t have a God complex. You too can be King of your home town and so can your next-door neighbour. Or Queen, or whatever you like.

Enough of the waffle. You came here for the music, so that is what I shall give you.

The King of Boscombe EP also features an exclusive remix by up-and-coming artist, Memoraphile. Take it in. Savour it. Love it. There’s more to come from Memoraphile, soon.

EP artwork was conceptualised and actualised by Cara Havenga, aka, Jungle Towers.
