Faintest Idea (UK) / K-Man & The 45s (CAN)

Skapunk, Punkrock

Faintest Idea started out as an angry punk band. Using their own blend of street punk with horns as a constructive release for their politics, they relentlessly toured up and down the country. Over time their 2 Tone Ska and Reggae influences started to come through to create their own blend of ‘Rude Boy Street Punk'. Summer 2012 saw the release of ‘The Voice of Treason’ on TNSrecords followed by more touring of the UK and Europe. Their well loved videos for album tracks 'Bull In A China Shop'  and 'Youth' led to them being invited to do a Maida Vale session for The Mike Davies Punk Show.


In the following years they've toured and played relentlessly, playing shows and festivals all over the UK & Europe. In June 2014 the band embarked on a 10 date tour of Russia, from their energetic live performance its no surprise they have an ever growing army of loyal fans anywhere they play.


Their latest album 'Increasing the Minimum Rage' was recorded with Hieronymous Melchers (Capdown, Citizen Fish, King Prawn, Snuff) and Mastered by Massimiliano Giorgini (Anti Flag, Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, Common Rider) The 11 track album features guest performances from Vic Ruggiero (The Slackers) and Sean Howe (Random Hand) and sounds heavier both musically and lyrically than their previous releases.


2018 will see the band do their first ever tour of Japan as well as multiple UK & European tours supporting Voodoo Glowskulls and The New Town Kings. With new material currently being written and recorded and a relentless touring schedule Faintest Idea never fail to get a crowd moving.


Call it what you want, we call it a rocking Ska party. Straight out of downtown Montreal, K-Man & the 45s have been bringing an edge to the Canadian ska scene for a few years now. In 2011 the boys brought you their first full length album entitled Got Me Movin' and released their first video and single The Red Guy Always Wins.Then they began playing non stop. They have now toured most of the country going from one ocean to another and word has been spreading quickly that when these guys hit the stage people tend to get wild. Is it the rockin vibe these people inject into their ska? Is it the volume and intensity for a ska show that gets them? Is it the sense of urgency they play with? Whatever it is, they tend to rock their ska so hard that people not yet familiar to ska are now getting into the wave. Often heard at a K-Man & the 45s show "man i didn't even know i liked ska, this rocks"-random rocker in you're city

The year is now 2013.The boys just released a new album called K-Man & the 45s present The Ska-mones Vol 1, a ska tribute to The Ramones! How did we get here you may ask? Well during all these shows over the last couple of years there we're times when the guys needed to play multiple sets and K-Man who was always a major fan of The Ramones song writing thought it would be a great fun way to pay tribute and make another set of music. Not knowing at the time that people would really get into the concept and began asking for recordings of The Ska-mones set....well, never one to dissapoint, here it is on cd and coming to you're town. K-Man & the 45s present The Ska-mones Vol 1.

K-Man & the 45s have shared the stage around Canada and at festivals with such groups as The Slackers, The Skatalites, Catch 22, The Brains and much much more. They headlined the first ever Montreal ska-fest evening as well as have played many others. They have headlined shows all across Canada and are prepared for much more.
