This band's skiffle meets busker mentality is identified by backing instruments such as washboard, banjo and kick drum.
Tim Carley is responsible for the percussive effects plus stomps and claps while wife Jo sings and plays mandolin, fiddle, aforementioned washboard and keyboards. Hawkeye Houlihan on upright bass is the most significant other.
The dreadlocked couple come at things from a ska/reggae angle but Jo's love of bluegrass offers another musical slant. Throw in some underground metal, gypsy punk and traditional folk and the potential for sonic mayhem is complete.
Alex McGowan was the producer selected to make sense of the madness - his CV includes albums with Urban Voodoo Machine and Wilko Johnson. The album was recorded in East London.
You only have to watch the augmented duo's entertainingly rowdy videos to realize that: a) This is not music to take too seriously b) It's made to be witnessed live.
If you imagine numerous (and humorous) variations on the old sea shanty 'What shall we do with the drunken sailor?' you'll get some idea of where this is pitched.
Actually, since corpses are a major theme of this album, their version of events would more likely revolve around the question - what shall we do with the dead sailor?
Dance 'til You're Dead stands both as a track title and statement of their surprisingly life affirmative philosophy.
