What needs to be said about this band? If just a quick glance above coupled with their name doesn't instantly prick your curiosity then you are probably safer at home watching something nightmarishly dull on the telly. For those whose curiosity is running wild right now you would be right to assume these guys are eccentric! In my world you couldn't pay a better compliment. Eccentric is perfect particularly when coupled witha level of talent and American stage skills. Songs to die for and performances worth living for, I am wild with excitement at being able to bring them back again to Bluefunk.
Starting off in the 90’s as the almost heavy metal 'Ancestors' the band have
taken all that is good in contemporary music, taken it to a secret place and using what can only be explained as alchemy, rebuilt it all into something impossibly different. It contains everything you've ever known but used in ways that are unfamiliar but somehow what you were expecting, what you always wanted.
The Slambovian Circus of Dreams have such an eclectic live stage presence that once seen, always hooked. Rubbing shoulders regularly with some of the icons of American music this band has got some serious endorsees.
Garth Hudson of 'The Band' is a committed Slambovian disciple and fan, describing frontman Joziah Longo as “An awesome songwriter”. Other writers have quoted lyrical similarities to both Dylan and John Prine. A close listen to their many albums and well attended live shows would bear out that comparison.
*WARNING* - the huge global fanbase of this extraordinary band will almost ensure a sell out. Particularly after last year's rapid sell out and subsequent extraordinary show. Early attention recommended.
Below is a link. Do not click it casually. This may ostensibly appear to be a route to some music.
Beware, it is actually a portal, a wyrm hole, the gateway to a parallel universe that is Slambovia. A world of extraordinary compositions impossible to categorise or label.
Easy to get into, a click does it, But it could be quite sometime before you can summon enough willpower to get you back out. It has to be done - but pick your moment wisely.
HELP! Is there anybody there - get me out (no don't.... just send in some food. I'm not done yet).
