Jonny “Itch” Fox hails from South London, and is the lead vocalist and ukulelist (I’m fairly sure I’ve never typed that word before) of The King Blues. At the age of 13 he was homeless, selling copies of The Big Issue to survive.
In 2014, during a period in which when the band was not active, Itch enjoyed considerable international sucess with the song Another Man. The associated video has to date attracted almost 1.9 million views, and it’s here (3:45). I can’t recall when I last enjoyed a music video so much. It’s a gem.
J4MB doesn’t generally go in for reviewing music and musicians, but there’s a reason for this post, which will become clear later today.
