SHAKEY’S SESSIONS PRESENTS The Kubricks
A regular fixture in the CHELMSFORD music scene for the last decade, SHAKSTER RECORDS are delighted to welcome back THE KUBRICKS for their first visit to HOT BOX. After surfacing in 2013 with their debut EP, “Wasters & Wannabes”, The Kubricks soon became one of the must-see ska bands of this generation. Tracks from their debut release were supported by Huey Morgan (6Music) and Tom Robinson (BBC Introducing – 6Music). The Specials’ bassist, Horace Panter, championed the band, claiming, “I can hear Madness, The Ruts, Squeeze and The Clash in there…” The timing was perfect, and coincided with a new interest in ska music, as many of UK’s festivals began dedicating entire stages to the genre. Riding on the back of this wave, the band soon found themselves supporting legends such UB40, Bad Manners and The Toasters, in addition to sharing the stage with The Skints, Buster Shuffle and Bombskare. The Kubricks have honed their commanding live set, headlining their own shows and playing festivals across the country. They have played to tens of thousands over the years, with appearances at Boomtown Fair, Bearded Theory’s Spring Gathering, Wickerman (Scotland), Godiva, Dance Ska La (France), Brownstock, and The London International Ska Festival, FLING FESTIVAL.
