Good news in the form the documentary 'The Source Park' now available across the world on Amazon Prime featuring the 2013 KING SIZE SLIM release 'MILK DRUNK'    

         The documentary is the story of Hastings brothers Marc and Richard Moore and their 2 year quest to transform a disused seafront Ice rink into the largest indoor Skate park in Europe. KING SIZE SLIM was approached by the production team to include the song 'Milk Drunk' from the 2013 album of the same name in the since critically acclaimed documentary. This adds another production to a long list of 'syncs' of the song.

KING SIZE SLIM : 3, 6, 9
Music is free! or at least since the popularisation of platforms like Spotify and Itunes etc, music is practically free. Fewer and fewer people own a device that plays music from hard-copy. Maybe there'll have a C.D player in the car, but short of that music is now almost entirely digital and almost entirely, excepting a monthly subscription, free of charge at the point of use.
With this in mind, the next KSS release will be three new tracks ,the first of three editions of three.Hence the 3, 6 and 9 title.
All the tracks will be free of charge to anyone. Email us and we'll send them to you. Hard copy with full artwork will be available at a charge as will some pretty cool merchandise ,but the music itself is free.
