Formed in 1988 in London, King Swamp released their self-titled debut album the following year. For their second album, Wiseblood, in 1990, they added guitarists Mike Cozzi and Nick Lashley. Grounded by Shriekback rhythm section Dave Allen on bass and Martyn Barker on drums, this quintet made a hell of a noise as the 1980s drew to a close. Walter Wray supplied rock star vocals and Dominic Miller, who later played for Sting, made his six-string howl. Allen and keyboard player Steve Halliwell supplied radio-ready tunes that somehow eluded airplay. After this promising eponymous debut, which included the single "Is This Love?," the group disbanded after their second album.
