King Swamp was a British rock band, consisting of Walter Wray (vocals), Dave Allen (bass), Steve Halliwell (keyboards), Dominic Miller (guitar), and Martyn Barker (drums). The band was formed in 1988 in London, after Allen and Barker had parted ways with Shriekback and recruited Wray as frontman. Halliwell and Mike Cozzi (featured on the second album) were also ex Shriekback members.
King Swamp's first single, "Is This Love?", reached number 21 on Billboard's Album Rock chart. The band released two albums plus several singles before disbanding in 1990 after their second studio album, Wiseblood, failed to chart anywhere in the U.S. or the U.K. and was panned by critics.
Wray and Halliwell are currently part of The Saturday Girls - backing group for Lily Rae, the former's daughter. They also play in a band named Little Machine, which puts music to poetry and have performed with poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy.
