The Fish Police, a three-piece band hailing from South London, mix a strong 70s punk attitude with a hip hop swagger and a dash of pop to create original tunes with edge.
Made up of Dean Rodney (singer, rapper, songwriter), Matthew Howe (guitar) and Charles Stuart (keys, co-songwriter, background vocals) they mix their love of computer games, cartoons, fast food and Japanese culture to create sounds that set them apart on the UK urban music scene.
The group got to know each other when Charles trained Dean and Matthew as part of our old young people’s group, Heart n Soul Youth in 2006. Since then they have been working on developing the band’s sound, style and performances.
In 2010 they made Heart n Soul history by becoming our first act to perform in America. They appeared at the Lincoln Center in New York City. In 2011 they completed their album and released their second music EP The Big Big World of Electronics.
In 2012, the group were involved in some of Heart n Soul’s biggest projects and events including the Dean Rodney Singers and The Beautiful Octopus Club at London’s Royal Festival Hall. They also performed at the 2012 London Paralympic Games opening ceremony. Later in the year they travelled to Cork and Turkey to share their way of working and performed at different club events.
2013 promises to be another exciting year as they get ready to release their first album and perform more gigs.
