‘FTK’ came to life in early 2018 after Curtis Taylor and Ciaran Egan drafted 3 new members; Thomas May (guitar), Andy Fletcher (bass) and Dan Houghton (drums), into their previously named project ‘Feed The Kid’. Writing and recording throughout the spring & summer (2018) at MMB Studios in Manchester Northern Quarter, the newly formed group of individuals set out to express their shared concern of the distinct lack of morals in today’s modern society, and voice those opinions under the ‘FTK’ banner.
“Part Gorillaz, part Simple Minds, it’s dense and hypnotic, reaching back into promising-you-a-miracle eighties with a swirling psychedelic wash, giving it a polished, ‘now’ edge” Louder Than War
“This song gets to the point without looking for the necessary controversy that some songs need to make. A lean, mean political song without any melodrama.” Flick of the Finger

“These must be Manchester best kept secret… a Manchester institution, with a live performance that is next level.” XS Manchester
