Loudini Interviews Kerry JK

Eccentric and eclectic sophisti-pop that is proudly genderfluid, subversively optimistic, mischievously spiritual and really, really groovy, with dominant influences combining the funk of Prince and Thomas Dolby with the lyrical honesty of Tom Robinson and New Model Army.

'Quicksand' Kerry JK has been lurking on the fringes of the music scene for over 25 years, in various guises. He ran the Great Escape Big Band, an anarchic 20-piece jazz orchestra featuring many players who went on to international careers, including members of the Haggis Horns. He was a member of Leeds goth ambassadors Zeitgeist Zero, whose John Fryer produced second album was championed by Mick Mercer. He even had an extended stint as the UK's only performing drag escapologist, Helen Held (The Girl No Man Can Hold).

Kerry now lives with his wife and many cats in Northampton UK.

“Be yourself, as yourself. There is no greater fulfillment, and no sweeter revenge.” - Kerry JK
