    Press Release 8th May 2017
    King of The Slums – Manco Diablo (LP) SLR Records Release Date 8th June 2017
    The 8th June 2017 a notable date when unscrupulous spin doctors seek to bury bad news. On the other hand King of the Slums’ Manco Diablo seeks to bury bad politics
    Some history....a long time ago, the band fell out. Their instruments damaged. Their Biro's broken. It took a long time for things to mend, it then took a little longer to write this album. The 5th Album, by KOTS, has been somewhat delayed due to artistic and world events It doesn't mean the band were not watching, it means they were thinking, waiting and allowing gestation to eventually force them to write their new journal.
    In fact, this printed page as clear and as coordinated as any other is in reality an inferno of furious electrons. If you were perpetually conscious of this the letters would dance before your eyes. Your fingers would feel the pressure of their evil motion like so many needle pricks. In a single day you might manage to achieve reading one feeble line, no more…..and friends…..we are far beyond the printed word. In the information age Manco Diablo is the antidote to a daily sensory overload on a malnourishing dust cloud of nonsense.
    The new album is not for just slamming into yer kite. It warrants your undivided attention and an enforcement disclaimer has been issued. The band have dispatched cheeky twats on bikes wearing hoods to ensure effective monitoring. They are currently pedaling towards your neighbourhood. Woe betide the non-compliant…
    There are no planned gigs in support of the album. The band eschew conventional protocols
    Despite this there are ongoing discussions regarding a unique one-off event to take place at an unlikely time, in an unlikely setting. If it comes to fruition it will mark the diamante swansong of the band. It may be a one minute wonder, but it’s one you should not miss End

King Of The Slums ml P lol.. Manchester, UK

King of the Slums are probably the most ‘under the radar’ and important band to come from Manchester. They started up around 1985 in the Hulme, area of Manchester but never considered themselves a 'Manchester' band - just a band with an arty background, a little self-indulgent and gritty, story-type songs..
