Kirk Brandon is the voice of Spear of Destiny, Theatre of Hate and Dead Men Walking. With over fifteen studio albums and countless single releases, his career now spans well over 30 years. He has enjoyed worldwide success with all three of the above bands and is also a leader in every punk rock poll by being the singer and songwriter in The Pack.
Over the last nine years, Kirk has released five solo acoustic studio albums (the “Dutch Masters” series) that have pulled tracks from all eras of his career, these albums have also featured many of the people Kirk has worked with and collaborated with over the years including Derek Forbes (Simple Minds), Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats), Mike Peters (The Alarm) & Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets).
The latest of these solo acoustic albums entitled Dutch Masters Volume Five has become, in its first year of release, the best seller in the series.
DM5 features two outstanding Theatre of Hate interpretations, a James Bond theme and a Country and Western cover of a Ry Cooder tune.
Over the past two years Kirk has joined by master cello player Sam Sansbury both in the studio and at live shows. Two exceptionally received studio albums have been released Cello Suites Uno & Duo.
