A true and unashamed budget lo-fi alternative rock band who sometimes leave audiences scratching their heads in this age of pompous and precious new wave of rock persona which see's bands spending more time on their emo comb over then banging out a tune. <br> <br>Robert Bennett (Plymouth) <br>King Box writer,guitars,Stylophone <br> <br>Paul Tippett (Plymouth) <br>cymbal eating,stick breaking shovel'er of sound,drummer <br> <br>Rob Stillwell (Plymouth) <br>The second Sandman cometh with strings played low,bassist <br> <br>King Sandbox were formed in Plymouth U.K in 2004 with the 3 original members Robert Bennett, Ben Diffey and Paul Tippett. <br>They went on to record an E.P (Blisters in New Places) in 2005 at Plymouth's much loved and adored P.M.C.
