[Don't panic – no children were harmed in the making of this band!] The Schoolboy is a saxophonist and rhyme-slinger with some forthright ideas. Together with his band the Death Trio (a Memento Mori) they form a militant unit of freedom loving, pUnk-JazZ-pOeTRy pushers.
Born in the depths of Bristol's underground scene SDT bring a message of reaffirmation, sometimes spiritual, often political and always existential. Their music is a distillation of heavy rhythms and dirty fuzz bass, upon which The Schoolboy applies his ferocious saxophone blast. Think Last Poets raging at the top of Cypress Hill with more than a touch of Sun Ra.
