"Not only courageous but wise."

So Beta Band is no longer but you can enjoy some great music courtesy of King Biscuit Time. I am sure there is a story behind that name. King Biscuit Time is a solo EP from Stephen Mason, lead singer of defunct The Beta Band.

Steve Mason has set up a new record company 'No Style' with fellow maverick Alan McGee, "in order for this 21st century Phil Spector" (claims his webpage) to pursue his music without major record label interference. As King Biscuit Time, Mason employs a combination of psychedelic, house, dance hall, pop, folk, hip-hop and electronics.

Check out some tracks from my homies FunTimeOk:
Mp3 Link: King Biscuit Time - "Kwangchow"
Mp3 Link: King Biscuit Time - "Ciam 15"*

Get both of those tracks they are highly recommended and some seriously good crap. Mason's voice has got to be one of my favorites. Love it. Its like Vedder or Gift of Gab no matter how much I listen to it I just don't get tired of it.

Buy No Style from iTunes.
Buy Ciam 15 from Amazon.

You might also want to look into The Aliens, who are another BB offshoot. I think they're pretty new but I heard a track (Hey Leanne) played on BBC1's Blue Room. If you're *really* quick you could run over there and listen to it.
