l Skhubhie Dubh Orchestra/ Khartoum Heroes
In the early-mid 90s, Kenny Anderson helmed a couple of hi-octane bluegrass-punk combos - the Skuobhie Dubh Orchestra, then Khartoum Heroes. He still performs with myriad comrades from those days - Captain Geeko the Dead Aviator, Uncle Beesly and Vic Galloway among them.
l The Fence Collective
The turn of the millennium saw Anderson and a rabble of like-minded DIY pop jesters (not least Gummi Bako) hijack Aikman's Bar in St Andrews, and start recording as The Fence Collective (whose alumni includes KT Tunstall and James Yorkson).
l KC Rules OK/Bombshell
King Creosote's home-made albums on his Fence imprint became progressively better known and loved, and this provoked a major label dalliance in the mid-2000s. The ensuing albums were terrific (2005's KC Rules OK and 2007's Bombshell), unlike his experience: he was back on indie-powerhouse Domino for 2009's tellingly-titled Flick the Vs.
l Diamond Mine
In a just world, King Creosote and Jon Hopkins' sublime collaboration would have won 2011's Mercury Prize.
l All the Threes
King Creosote has three new albums in the pipeline, three East Neuk festivals in the 2014 diary, and three collaborations on the cards - not bad for a man who broke his ankle in three places earlier this year.
