- Not to be confused with The KKs.
"The KTs look like a load of teenage girls. With beards."
~ Shanda Lear, Rolling Stone
Formed in Liverpool in 1964, the KTs became one of foremost bands of the late 60s and early 70s. The band consisted of four male clones, all called KT, and from that they took their name. Their first release "Please Kill Me" was a major commercial success, going triple-platinum and thrusting the KTs into a permanent place amongst the plethora of 60s giants.
