Best known as the drummer for Babyshambles since 2005, Adam Ficek is also the singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist behind Roses Kings Castles' folky, lo-fi indie pop. Along with his Babyshambles duties, Ficek also plays drums and sings with the electro-tinged Mains Ignition collective. A former drum teacher, Ficek conceived of Roses Kings Castles in 2007 as a working holiday from Babyshambles, and played and recorded all of the instruments in his music himself. Roses Kings Castles' first single, Sparkling Bootz, arrived in spring 2008, while Entroubled was released just a few weeks before the album Roses Kings Castles appeared that fall. A third single, Horses, was released that December. Early in 2009, Roses Kings Castles was issued in the U.S. Released in 2010, Suburban Timebombs took a more ambitious approach.
