Formed in 2018 King Brown the 1st was the amalgamation of 3 long time friends Tony Rushan, Jacin Shardlow and Adrian Smith, who have played in many different local blends of bands covering hard rock numbers. Back in the 90’s Tony played lead for Perth power pop band The Kryptonics, living, recording and touring in the east.
With a love of Australian indie music and noisy guitars, King Brown the 1st write dirty pub rock songs with their tongue firmly in their cheek.
Before Covid the band supported Sydney’s Front End Loader, Perth band The Volcanics and local bands Trash Panda and Second Winter. When the plague hit they went to ground, but now they are back and out of the shed!!
