Kenny "King Creosote" Anderson    

Referred to as "King Creosote," Scottish singer-songwriter

King Creosote is the stagename of Scottish singer-songwriter Kenny Anderson (from Fife, Scotland). Anderson began recording albums under the name King Creosote in 1995. Since then, Anderson has released over forty albums, beginning with Queen Of Brush County in 1998. During this time, Anderson has performed with Skuobhie Dubh Orchestra and Khartoum Heroes. He is also a member of Scottish-Canadian supergroup, The Burns Unit.

A popular misconception is that this is the name of the band featuring him and not just his stage name. However, at live shows, he will usually introduce his band members by their similar pseudonyms - some fellow Fence Collective artistes such as The Pictish Trail (aka Johnny Lynch), On The Fly and Uncle Beesly, to name but the usual line-up.

Albums include: Kenny and Beths Musakal Boat Rides (2003); Rocket D.I.Y. (2005); KC Rules OK (2005); Bombshell (2007) and Flick The Vs (2009).
