The Higsons were an English funk-punk band in the United Kingdom in the 1980s. Founded in 1980 at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, The Higsons' first recording was on the Norwich - A Fine City compilation album. The Higsons' first single, "I Don't Want to Live with Monkeys", was released in 1981. The band signed to the 2 Tone Records label, along with bands such as The Specials, The Beat and Madness.
This is the official page for The Higsons. In a tin! With download code for the full 11 track album. Like most band names, it came about by accident – trying to explain the sound of three musicians playing horn-led instrumentals from the rock/pop side of the tracks, the closest description was a ‘near-jazz experience’. 5 May at 14:09 ·. Nice spot by an ex-Farmer's Boy!!
The Curse of the Higsons was one of the more interesting style experiments to emerge out of the meta-scene of English post-punk new wave. Unfamiliar chord changes and lyrical themes were awkwardly rammed against more familiar elements like dancehall, funk, and primitive hip-hop. It helped that Charlie "Switch" Higson sang differently every other song and Simon Charterton's drumming fell apart like rhythmic spillage, and both underpinned the New Orleans vibe and seemingly accidental sprigs of brass
