“Our music is cuff links, pinkie rings, bow ties, and nice ascots for everybody!” says Tilson, one of two MC’s for Seattle super-group The Saturday Knights, just signed to Light In The Attic — the label’s first signing since The Black Angels. The Saturday Knights are set to PLAY AN OFFICIAL SXSW SHOWCASE, time and date to be determined.
Seattle’s “punk rock-power pop band with hip-hop songs” hooked up with Light In the Attic after a solid year of being wooed by labels like Downtown Records and Island/Def Jam. Their first gig was an improvisational smash success opening for a sold-out RJD2, and since then The Saturday Knights have performed with Death Cab for Cutie, The Streets, The Go! Team, Blowfly, and Lady Sovereign.
TSK circulated four playful, infectious, Big Beat Poetry songs as a demo last year, and one of them, “45,” became a hit on almighty taste-making station KEXP as well as commercial powerhouse The End 107.7 FM. It is one of four tracks to be released on their forthcoming introductory EP, with a full-length promised by the fall!
It’s very rare that you see the kind of reaction I’ve seen playing this band. I would have to say it’s the most anticipated Seattle release in some time and they are easily one of the most exciting things happening in Seattle right now. - John Richards, KEXP
I LOVE your band. - Gary Gersh, signed Nirvana, managed everyone from The Beastie Boys to Beck
