Alberteen is: Ade Berry, John Rose, Phil Shaw and Gareth Warden.
In 2012 Alberteen released their debut 'Metal Book' which mixed 60's R 'n' B, dark, provocative lyricism and post-punk sonics into their own distinctive blend of 'Rhythm & Noir'.
Alberteen return with their second album 'Miss World', produced by Mike Bennett (The Fall, Ian Brown) and released on 25th May via the band's label Rhythm & Noir. The album is one of a theme, taking the listener around the landscapes and histories of the South-east coast, from the looming presence of Dungeness' nuclear power station to the Margate mod riots of '64 through to the MOD research site at Fort Halstead - via the many half-forgotten seaside towns in-between. 'Miss World' takes inspiration from the coast's landscape, history and artistic heritage, including J.M.W Turner's painting 'Snow Storm - Steam-Boat off a Harbour's Mouth', the works of T.S. Eliott and the 17th- Century sonnet of John Donne inscribed on Derek Jarman's Dungeness cottage. Even the album's title, 'Miss World' is a nod to Folkestone's role in hosting the first international beauty contest in 1908 and to Derek Jarman's film of the same name, while the album's cover is a photograph of vintage nuclear equipment from Dungeness' power station (taken by Kent-based photographer Nigel Green).
