Welcome to the official site of KILLING FLOOR - the classic British blues rock band formed in 1968. This year the band is 50 years old, formed on February 14th 1968 by Mick Clarke and Bill Thorndycraft. Work is under way on special releases, and diary notes from 1968 will appear on our facebook page. The original four piece line-up of Bill Thorndycraft, Mick Clarke, Stuart McDonald and Bazz Smith are alive and kickin' and our thoughts go to those no longer with us - Lou Martin, and also Rod DeAth and Mick Hawksworth who joined the band later. More info to follow.

I've been a fan for most of my life. Rather than "gush" over the importance of Killing Floor for every kid who dreamed of owning a Marshall stack and an SG, I'll just say "keep on rockin."
