Biography

King Of Spain are a four piece hailing from Balham, South London. Their much anticipated debut album 'Battleships and Aeroplanes' is out now on pioneering Oxford label Shifty Disco. Album track Bacon has been selected by William Ravenscroft (son of the late, great John Peel) as one of his gems of 2008 and along with 'Menagerie', has received airplay on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Music show.
