The best kept secret in music


"The Face Magazine"

"...a blinding set...They rock the show with such effortless energy and noise and self-assurance that I don't ever want it to end. 'See you at the fucking bar,'" C. shouts, as they jump of the stage to enormous cheering. Cantankerous are going to be huge." - UK

"Toni & Guy Magazine"

“Who's the masked MC with blood on her tongue and fire in her belly? It's a closely guarded secret; one that Tommy Boy, the label who signed her doesn't even know. Backed by a band of incendiary axe wielders and mutant ragga punks, Cantankerous is all about attitude. 'I'm not chatting about how many rings me got on me fingers,' says the militant dancehall queen. 'We're political, confrontational, and commenting on life outside the council estate.' Makes So Solid Crew look like Westlife.” - UK

Cantankerous give us what they’ve got and they’ve got it all! Visually they question stereotypes, with a confrontational stage presence - black lace gimp masks complete with afro hair attachments over a uniform of Celtic green vests and jackets hammering home controversial ironies of the society we inhabit. Equally the Cantankerous sound is a developed war-cry, stomping and guitar laden, energised with a grinding electronic backdrop they thrash their way through some very anthemic anecdotes. Cantankerous combine unique patois vocal style with hell-raising choruses. Cantankerous are gonna catch on! - by Princess Julia
