Why did the Irish artist, the Canadian surfer, the Portuguese London tour guide, the Gloucestershire gardener, two UK Guild Hall students, a Latvian paralegal and an androgynous cockney walk into a bar?
Answer: to play some folk-punk-blues of course.
THE GREAT MALARKEY has been very much "balls to the wall" for want of a better phrase, with influence from Tom Waits, The Pixies, The Pogues, Beirut, Nick Cave, Fanfare Ciocarlia, Manu Chao, The Dead Brothers and Toots and The Maytals, the latter of whom they were honoured to support at only their third gig.
Their energy remains consistent, but now with a maturity crafted over 5 years of writing, listening and extensive touring of the UK, Scandanavia and Europe.
