Arthur Kitchener is not a new artist. He has been an active musician and writer ever since his early days in South London playing Bass for many bands including The Balham Alligators.

His solo career started after moving to Herne Bay in the 70’s and joining the team at Europa Sound Studios (Folkestone) and his highly successful single “Ska Wars” on Red Admiral Records as artist Arthur Kay. Many years have passed as Arthur forged his art leading bands of many genres. His solo album The Wordsmith is his first on Red Admiral as he returned to his roots and The Hobo Manifesto follows in the same vein.

"There have been three things that have been consistent from my teenage years and they are. My love of The music of Dion DiMucci.
My love of Millwall football club and my belief in a Higher Power.
-   I first heard the music of Dion in a film called ''Twist Around The clock'' while I was on the run from Shephall Manor, a school for maladjusted boys. His music gave me a direction that still continues today
--  My love of Millwall started a few years later. Coming from South London Millwall was a short train ride from where I grew up in Streatham. I attended Matches with a Shephall Manor friend who lived round the corner from ground.
---  I have never doubted the existence of a power greater than myself that looked after me when I went through some very dark years in my life.
The songs on this album reflect those three things and without over explanation.

“Sounds like a cross between Bruce Springsteen; Woody Guthrie and Billy Bragg”.. Music Maker Magazine.
