Reese Edwards (edward longshanks)
The founding member of TTK and main songwriter, although in his fourth decade has the enthusiasm
and drive of a small possum. His vocal delivery has a warmth that is rare but he can belt out stompers with gusto, though
he does have to have a wee nap afterwards.
Born to welsh gypsies in the shadow of Snowdon, Reese assessed early on that life in the hills
would not benefit his musical aspirations and so settled in the happening town of Barnsley, his first and fatal mistake.
His fondness for old westerns, cool jazz,and great 70's Rock has moulded the thin kings
songs into an eclectic blend that may take some adjusting to but like many of lifes most potent vices, it's a taste worth

Moon Edwards (clock edwards)
The younger handsomer sibling of big iron Reese, Moon took up drums in a vain bid to lose
weight. Luckily for him he got quite good at it and the rest is mystery. In demand due to his keen ear and timekeeping
skills 'the clock' has constantly been in beer wages throughout his drumming career and looks forward to buying a pint of
his own when his ship comes in.

With his tight ginger mullet and graphite stick bass, young Paul Kirkwood cut a dashing figure
in the slap happy 80's local music scene. With maturity and wisdom the orange one grew to love the subtle talents of the jazz
greats like Pastorius and Dave from Chas'n'Dave. He brought these skills to Reeses table and the band took on form as Junkyard
Dog with Flerk playing so furiously that he wore away the end of his index finger. Now digitally challenged he finds solace
in home recording and unreality TV.

the shackles his parents had fashioned for him from gaffer tape was MUSIC. His first love was rock but he can roll on occasion.

the soft songs. With a multitude of illnesses and neuroses accumulating you may get to see him drop dead on stage at a venue
