Rapskallion “The Cat ‘N Fiddle” EP launch w/Ivy Lucille
Coorabell Hall, Friday 16th December
Rapskallion shall once again be taking to the eastern road this summer, pedalling their new 5 track E.P “The Cat n’ Fiddle” from Melbourne town to Brisvegas in a blaze of sweat, colour, feathers and accordion powered riffage.
The Skallions have entertained audiences worldwide for over half a decade, with their unique concoction of vaudevillian, cabaret, junkyard gypsy blues. Reminiscent of 20’s Paris Bohemia transported to a Romanian tavern and then set adrift on the high seas. Their original blend of music is strongly influenced by the music of Eastern Europe, Greece, France and Spain as well as hip hop and hobo jazz.
Their new EP Cat and Fiddle is a collection of musical vignettes from a realm inhabited by back alley gangster felines, femme fatales, and silver moon maidens, with a soundtrack somewhere between a Chicago speakeasy, a Hungarian hoedown, and a Halloween party at a south seas pirate haven.
The buccaneers gone electric have extracted these five songs from their upcoming full length release, “Vagabond King”, which will be available on vinyl and CD in March 2012.”The Cat n’ Fiddle” will be released on the 25th November and available through rapsakllion.com.au and Rapskallion shows.
