KING PRAWN - A Dominant View.
King Prawn were a prominent band of the UK ska punk scene during the 1990s and early 2000s.
King Prawn were viewed as one of the most innovative bands of this period, blending elements of punk, hardcore, metal, ska, dub, reggae, and hip hop into their music, which they dubbed wildstyle.
Since the London band's formation in 1993, they were subject to critical acclaim, having been nominated for the Best New British Band category at the Kerrang! Awards in 1998, and then again under the Spirit of Independence category in 2000. King Prawn toured regularly with broad range of bands, varying from hardcore to traditional and 2 Tone ska bands. King Prawn songs often contained political lyrics that, along with the band's blending of genres, led to comparisons with bands such as Rage Against the Machine.
King Prawn played their penultimate concert on December 20, 2003 at The Forum in Kentish Town which was recorded for their live DVD, their final gig followed the next night at the Pitz club in Milton Keynes and members have since moved on to other projects, such as drummer Nikolai forming Left Step Band an eclectic four piece Hip Hop groove machine, Babar Luck has his solo project and the Household Name Records-signed music collective Suicide Bid.
