Adam Ficek as a solo artist (formerly known as Roses Kings Castles) was first developed in 2007, originally intended as an underground platform to air the songs that were too 'odd pop' for his band Babyshambles. The initial eponymously titled album was released in 2008 on Adam’s own label ‘The Sycamore club’ receiving cult critical acclaim. This was quickly followed by two more albums 'Suburban Timebomb’ and ‘British Plastic’.!
'neat, Lovelorn lo-fi pop'. NME
'Adventurous, well crafted pop from ex-Babyshambler. Ficek displays an understanding of classic songwriting, a clever turn of phrase and the confidence to take risks' UNCUT
Following a two year hiatus and the departure from Babyshambles, Adam has returned to his folkier roots performing new songs and previous material under his own name. His first EP under his new moniker will be released in Oct.!
