killing for company cropHot Welsh rockers Killing For Company are putting the finishing touches to their as-yet-untitled debut on Tyneside this week – with drummer and former Stereophonic Stuart Cable insisting the band’s British rock sound is something akin to a ‘steam train’.

Fusing Cable’s tub thumping with former members of Powder and The Teeth, the band signed to Global Music earlier this year. And after a month holed up inside a Newcastle studio KFC have targeted February for the release of their full-length debut.

“I just wanted this band to be founded on huge guitars and a big drum sound and I think we’ve achieved that aim,” added Cable, who famously quit the ‘Phonics in 2003. “We didn’t want to sound Americanised in any way and wanted to capture a traditional British sound. Now I reckon the new record will sound something like a steam train.”

KFC are hoping to confirm a support slot on one of the most anticipated UK tours of the year very soon. But they’ll be back on Tyneside to finish mixing their album in two weeks’ time – expect more news from one of our hot tips for 2010 later this month.
