The Rapskallion Extravaganza Show!
Fresh from European touring escapades and a summer tour in oz, Rapskallion return to Red Bennies, to present their own inimitable brand of wild junk yard blues, take me tango’s, rambunctious punk rock polka’s and old world romance, all dressed in exquisite hobo finery.
Mixing not one but two accordions, crooning vocals, howlin violin, and the guts of a double bass, we intend to push out our proverbial glamour ship, into seas unexplored, to regions dazzling in their rollicking rock n' roll goodness, we plan waltzing until the dance floors become awash with the combined, and uninhibited romantic joy of all concerned, permeating polkas smelling of French perfume, pyrates on unicycles, that kind of thing…
Come expecting the unfathomable, the ridiculous, merriment for its own wine sodden sake, not to mention accordion riffs of mass disruption, and indecipherable accents, corseted bandit wenches, vaudevillian waitresses and not to mention a damn good time.
Like buccaneers gone electric or muppets livin in a bordello, Rapskallion have got more character than a Dickens novel.
This will be Rapskallions 2nd llast show in Melbourne before they disappear to sail the high seas and record their 2nd album.
