Biography

Scottish singer/songwriter Kenny Anderson is King Creosote, who has also been a part-time member of Magnetophone and U.N.P.O.C., and has performed with Adem. He had previously been the vocalist for Skuobhie Dubh Orchestra and Khartoum Heroes. Anderson has prolifically released over two dozen CD-Rs on his own label, Fence, a collective assembled along with brothers Een (aka Pip Dylan) and Gordon (aka Lone Pigeon). In 2003 Domino pressed the first proper album Kenny and Beth's Musakal Boatrides, followed in 2005 by Rocket D.I.Y. Released in 2006, KC Rules OK included liner notes from famed Scottish crime writer Ian Rankin, and garnered both regional and international acclaim. Bombshell arrived in 2007, followed by Flick the Vs in 2009. The compilation Thrawn -- representing Anderson’s first official stateside release -- was issued in 2011, and Diamond Mine, a collaboration with British ambient artist Jon Hopkins, also arrived that year. Diamond Mine proved to be a major critical success in the U.K. landing on various year end lists and earning Anderson and Hopkins a Mercury Prize nomination. Signing to Domino Records, Anderson re-recorded his 2010 D.IY. album That Might Be It, Darling for his new label, retitling it That Might Well Be It, Darling in 2013. The following year, he provided the soundtrack to a documentary about his home country called From Scotland with Love, which was released to coincide with the 2014 Commonwealth Games held in Glasgow. After a handful of new D.I.Y. releases on Fence, Anderson returned with his Domino follow-up, Astronaut Meets Appleman, in 2016. ~ Kenyon Hopkin
