Ukulele Kris is an acoustic punk/ska musician from the Northwest city of Preston. Kris has been in two bands previously, both of which were ska. Firstly "The Emotional Problems of Dirk Diggler", and then "Peter Simple", later renamed "The Strikeouts", after dropping from an 8 piece, to a 3 piece band. After a short unsuccessful stab at stand up comedy (not down to not being funny, more down to not being confident enough), Kris is now back to what he does best. Writing punky ska songs, but this time, just performing them on his own.
