Karl Phillips And The Rejects Release Music Video for “Plastic Gangsta”!

Ska collides with Punk guitar riffs and mad rapping skills on the newest single from Midlands, UK based, 7 piece rock band Karl Phillips And The Rejects, “Plastic Gangsta.” Releasing May 10th with introductory spins on BBC1 Radio, “Plastic Gangsta,” which shows Karl Phillips following a young gangster as he goes about his day posturing and generally making a fool of himself, will be available to download 5/19 via Medical Records.

“I’m a fly on the wall in his life, one minute he’s flexing in his bedroom mirror, and I’m like, ‘what are you doing’.” Says Karl of the video. “Next minute, he’s doing gun signs but his mum is shouting him down for dinner.

“Plastic Gangster is about a guy who thinks he’s a gangster but he’s just a mummy’s boy, in his head, he knows it really. The song is saying ‘stop being an idiot, it’s embarrassing” – Karl Phillips

About Karl Phillips And The Rejects:

A completely original mashup of ska, punk & grime with a hip-hop nod at luminaries like The Clash, The Specials & Mike Skinner. Karl’s refreshingly honest lyrics test the boundaries of the human mind and the English etiquette, coming from a place most people can relate to but never dared to mention!

The last few years has seen Karl support chart topping legends such as Chase & Status, Example and Ella Eyre! To underground hero’s like The King Blues, Gentleman’s Dub Club, The Skints, Dub Pistols, Imperial Leisure, The Neville Staple Band, Dreadzone & Alabama 3!

Karl and the band have had radio play on numerous BBC Introducing shows, including BBC 6 Music, with music video’s airing on various television channels.

Headline gigs include The Garage London, O2 Academy’s and a sell-out EP launch at Camden Barfly! Squeezing in the odd gig in France…. Karl even gained support from the ‘Dont Flop’ Rap battle league after taking part in what might be the worlds first ever ‘Guitar Rap Battle!

Summers are spent in festival mode spreading the Ska/Rap/Punk vibe from Boomtown Fair, The Secret Garden Party, Strawberry Fair, Blissfields and Beautiful Days to as far as Summer Sound Festival in Latvia! Sharing stages with the likes of Bob Geldof, UB40, Wiley, The Subways, Tinchy Stryder, The Feeling, Skepta and Zane Lowe, meaning Karl and The Rejects have been performing non stop for several years…. and loving every second of it!

These brilliant tracks had us all crunking in the studio. It also left us in awe of Karl’s ability to rap and The Rejects ability to keep up with him… freakishly quickly, without stumbling over the words or beats! If we tried anything like that, we’d be breathless in seconds…” – Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music)

This is music to wake you up, slap you around the face to make sure you are listening, and force you to do an hour in the gym before breakfast…It’s perfect festival fodder too. This is the sort of sound that will draw people into a dark tent on a sunny afternoon or get them to get up and dance in the mud in front of an open stage” – John Bowery (Virtual Festivals)
