The Stiff Joints Bio:
The Stiff Joints were formed in 2009 by a close group of friends who grew up in Kidderminster.
'With little to do but misbehave we all turned to music. A common love of punk brought us together, which progressed into a love of ska and reggae, as we were turned onto bands from the mighty '2-tone' era of the late 70's and 80's such as The Specials.'
- Will Payton (Bass)
The debut EP 'Rowdy and Stoned' was released at the end of 2012, the follow up 'Circus On Repeat' is now underway and shall be available at the end of 2013
"The Stiff Joints plays an infectious brand of two-tone ska that makes it impossible to sit still when you listen. If you’re a fan of two-tone ska (no matter the era), you will like this band." - Incognito Music Mag, USA.
"As with all good ska bands it's live that these guys really shine. Having made local venues jumping for the past few years now they are about to embark on a number of dates around the country in March/April. So if you get chance I recommend you check em out!" - Jason Kernoham, Pulsebeat Music Blog
