It may not have been the most obvious scenario, but it was a chance meeting at a Halloween party with a man dressed in a potato sack that spawned the birth of a Huddersfield garage blues duo.
And it took a drunken reggae party night to decide on their name, Knuckle.
They’re now a name hot on the tongues of Huddersfield gig goers, thanks to Ben Wallbanks and Jonny Firth’s reputation for their explosive live sets and avant-garde compositions.
Describing themselves as being ‘The Black Keys on Crack’, they mesh lightning quick and intricate drumming with emotive blues lyrics and energizing fuzzy guitar riffs.
Not just fast-paced on stage, they are also renowned for their insupressible creative energy, which saw them write 12 songs in just four hours.
They will launch their first E.P. on September 6 at The Parish.
