King Creosote Biography

Kenny Anderson, known primarily by his stage name King Creosote, is an independent singer-songwriter from Fife, Scotland. To date, Anderson has released over forty albums, with his latest, Flick the Vs, released on April 20, 2009.

Regarding his stage name, Anderson states:
I used to make records with a band called Skuobhie Dubh Orchestra, but always had to record a lot of my songs on my own. I wanted to put out these recordings on my own label Fence, so then I needed something to go on the fence. That's the creosote part. I wrote down king creosote, and immediately liked the juxtaposition of the regal and the carcinogenic.


Anderson is also a member of Scottish supergroup The Burns Unit.

Anderson's brothers are also musicians: Ian "Een" Anderson (known as Pip Dylan) and Gordon Anderson (Lone Pigeon) - who is lead singer and main songwriter with The Aliens. Collaborations between the three often occur at live shows and on album releases.
