British singer/rapper Plan B is forming a new punk band with his backing group and stylist.
The She Said hitmaker wants to promote talent from his local East London neighbourhood, Forest Gate, and is planning to group together with his pals, guitarist Tom Goss, bassist Adam Jordan and stylist Shaun Taymar.
The singer, real name Ben Drew, is looking forward to having a break from his solo work and is intending to create a "punk ethos" when they head into the studio.
He tells Britain's Daily Star, "Me and my backing band are always working on ideas in soundcheck and I want to turn it into a proper band. It's going to be a real punk band - not in terms of the sound, but having a proper punk ethos in our attitude.
"It'll be great to be a part of a band where everyone has equal responsibilities, including doing press and promotional interviews. I like having a family feel on tour, with mates and young talent from Forest Gate. The band will be a collective of home-grown talent."
