semi-officially the most hated/crap/controversial band in the UK

Gigs | Bandcamp/Merch | YouTube | Instagram | Facebook | Soundcloud | Twitter | Contact

Sitting uneasily between straight-up nihilism and fresh-faced naivety,
Killdren pen politically charged slapstick rave punk anthems.
They form the ideal soundtrack to the worst generation in history.


'Killdren presents' gig night in London

We're running another one of our 'Killdren presents...' gig nights in London on Saturday 10 June

Killdren presents... spring gig night at New River Studios

with the amazing Pavlov's House, Music in Our Underpants, Oliotronix – and us (soz).

Limited capacity at the venue, advance tickets advised.
Early bird tickets have gone, £8 standard available here:

If you prefer a reminder from Faceberk, you can join the event here.

New song – Can't Pay Won't Pay

We rushed a version of this new song to align with support for the Don't Pay campaign currently taking hold in the UK that encourages people to take part in non-payment of their energy bills.

This is to counter the ransacking and profiteering from the energy companies – who are simulaneously reporting their largest ever profits while raising energy prices astronomically for the consumer. It's putting people's livelihoods and even lives on the line, especially as we approach winter and we are experiencing Tory-bandit Austerity 2.0 aka the 'cost of living living crisis'.

There is plenty of info and resources about how to take part on the DontPay.UK website!

New tees on our Bandcamp merch page

We got some new prints of the Killdren face/icon done - with some ladies-cut t-shirts and some lairy green and pink colours too, in addition to the usual unisex tees and blaaaack. We also reduced the price of our fabulous Eat the Rich design too, now that we've paid off the illustration.

New DJ MIXES are up on Mixcloud

Killdren on the wheels of cheap plastic

The third and fourth editions of our mix series are online - our usual mixed bag of tunes drawn from the well of inspiration for our own music, plus some bangers and just-plain-weird stuff we're into.
We also did a special Disunited Kingdom mix for 'er Madge's near-death-experience aka the Jubilee.


Benefit single: Escape from Plague Island

cover art for Killdren single Escape from Plague Island

It’s out NOW and all proceeds go towards a prisoner support fund for people being fitted up by the state for their part in the Bristol Kill the Bill protests.

Head over to our Bandcamp page to listen but ideally chuck in some money towards the benefit!

Latest LP: Dismembers of Parliament

We are very proud of our third release – an 8 track album recorded during the lockdown period.
It's available from Bandcamp and via all major outlets.

Who the fuck are these "posh punks from Tonbridge Wells"?

Hopefully you have your own inventive reasons for visiting our site (boring stuff, like enjoying one of our gigs, or because you're curious just how shit 'rave punk' music could be)... but otherwise maybe you're here because we wrote a heart-felt, but tongue-in-cheek, song about the deadly nature of the brutal austerity policies of the Conservative party which have contributed towards an estimated 130,000 preventable deaths in the UK???

We made a absurdist OTT music video that was rushed to coincide with the General Election in 2017 before we were even a band or had any real songs. However, some dingle-berry journalist at the Murdoch-owned Sunday Times broke a story to earn some pennies and there was a 'tinsy, tiny wee media shit-storm' about our debut song 'Kill Tory Scum (Before They Kill You)':

The original comedy-horror music video made for about £50
The original article in some bum-rag called the Sunday Times
Our own main media response in a paper that at least published our words unedited
A follow up musical response 'Tickle Tory Chums' presented by our manager Bruce Manhood
One of the most ridiculous bits of coverage, where we get defended by one of the clan Johnson

After this debacle we were withdrawn from the Glasonbury Festival lineup, had our Facebook page removed (new one now here), our Big Cartel page shut down and our YouTube page listed as 'restricted content'.

You couldn't make this shit up – so we didn't!

Disguise the Limit

You can listen/buy it over here on Bandcamp

We have CDs for sale!

Dismembers of Parliament CD label

We have both of our albums available on CD – on our Bandcamp page.

Overkill is Underrated available on Bandcamp:

We got a video channel too:

Killdren’s debut song was released in 2017 as a response to the call for a General Election
in the form of a YouTube music video entitled ‘Kill Tory Scum (Before They Kill You)’.

Some dingle-berry journalist at the Sunday Times (in June 2019) broke a story and there was
'a tinsy, tiny wee media shit-storm' about this particular song:

Our own main media response
A follow up musical response
Our favourite bit of coverage

And you can buy shit, sucker:

Show the world your disdain for the Tories' violent policies with a wonderful Kill Tory Scum t-shirt!
We also have ones with Russell Taysom's glorious icon design below as well as CDs, tea towels and face masks!
Available now over on our Bandcamp page
