Win U.K. Alternative Rapper Itch’s 10 Favorite Albums by Warped Tour Alumni
British fans first met Jonathan “Itch” Fox in the mid-’00s, when he made a big ruckus as frontman for the ska- and folk-infused London political punk band the King Blues. The group split up last year, and Itch has since gone solo on that arse, forging a new sound informed by hip-hop and dance music, as well as the styles he’s explored over the last decade.
Having recently released his solo debut, the wonderfully titled EP ‘Manifesto Part 1: How to F—ing Rule at Life’ (download for free via the widget below), Itch is hitting the road on this summer’s Warped Tour. Said trek is a natural home for Itch, a longtime punk fan who worked with Tim Armstrong, co-frontman of Warped vets Rancid, on the standout track ‘Bruises,’ a Cali-style pop-reggae nugget sure to win him some U.S. fans. In celebration of his upcoming Warped adventure, Itch is partnering with Diffuser.fm to give away a prize pack of his 10 favorite albums by Warped Tour alum.
