Ennobled by improbable facial hair and dignified with cavernous vocal chords, The Spooky Men’s Chorale have been gleefully smashing up and reassembling the world of men’s singing since 2001, when they emerged from the Blue Mountains in Australia. They employ a devastating combination of immaculate musical sensibilities, hair-raising deep harmonies and extreme silliness to explore the paradoxes of latter day masculinity.
The repertoire, which began with a simple combination of Georgian table songs, immaculate ballads and vaudevillian nonsense, has expanded to include sly and witty commentary on their own favourite body parts, a surfing anthem, and a mock Sufi ode to the Bee Gees – all performed with passion and a twinkle in the eye.
Their last UK tour saw a large number of sell-out concerts at major venues and a whole raft of ecstatic festival audience reactions. The Spookies will now continue their long, slow global conquest with a 6th visit to these isles, and a step-up in their supernova trajectory with some major festival dates.
They will arrive tenderly brandishing their 5th album (due for release in the UK in the summer of 2015): a long requested departure from the previous 4 voyages into magnificent silliness into an idyll in vast, calm, resonant deepness.
“Inspired – and a triumph of choreography! Catch them on the road – a fantastic night out is guaranteed!” MARK RADCLIFFE, BBC RADIO 2
