Keith Top Of The Pops & His Minor UK Indie Celebrity All-Star Backing Band arrived with debut album F*ck You! I’m Keith Top of the Pops a few years back. The concept was simple; Keith TOTP writes music that seems fun and honest, but is layered with melodic and lyrical satire. He’s somewhat of an understated genius, yet the beauty is that he doesn’t take himself too seriously at all.
Keith’s second album TOTP 2 is out end of May and features an array of musicians: Charley Stone (The Famous Cocks, Joanne Joanne), Sarah Nixey (Black Box Recorder), Jimbob (Carter USM), Charlotte Hatherley (Ash), Johnny Fade (The Fades), Eddie Argos (Art Brut), Luke Haines (The Auteurs), and Simonand Julia Indelicate (The Indelicates). Live, Keith invites his friends and fans to join him on stage. If you can play something and you’re into it, you’re in!
Keith’s attitude and humorous approach to making music and playing live are refreshing and fun, something that other musicians often forget. Music should be all-inclusive. Keith TOTP, we salute you.
