Rhino and the Ranters is a full bodied and flavourful maelstrom made with a roux of Skiffle/ Bluegrass/ Rockabilly/ Cow Punk; tinged with Klezmer, haunted by Voodoo. From this dark melee trips a rocking, stomping, hollering, hootenanny resting in the marrow of your bones.
Accordion to local legend, however, the ‘Ranter’ crystalised in the swamps of the Bayou and the salt of the Baltic Sea. Was tossed in the tempests of Irish winds, lost in the smog of Birmingham, then crawled from the creep sneaks of Camden. Producing what is known today as the ‘Rhino-and-the-Ranters’.
Bring about a quintet of threat, brethen of the free revolutionary stickitupemen, diggers of groove. Blend. Combine guardians of rotten wood, dead flesh and gales of windpipes. Amalgamate. Boil the fight-pickers, curse-flingers, guffaw-givers, birdhouse-turders and the animal-insurgers to a soulful broth. When thickened, spice-dance and capitulate to the mood. Serve with dreams and weep pleasurably.
Rhino and the Ranters hit the London scene in 2010 and in a short amount of time managed to create quite a stir in the capital. They have played at the notorious Gypsy Hotel nights, supported the mighty Urban Voodoo Machine, backed the fabulous Penny Black Remedy, featured in the legendary DJ Scratchy’s Wireless FM show and are about to support TheSpecials’ guitarist Roddy Radiation’s latest band The Skabilly Rebels. Who knows what will happen in 2011? Quelle:http://www.kulone.com/GB/Picture/EventShow/2523273
Der Blues wurde deshalb erfunden, weil die Seele vieler Menschen sonst noch schneller verkümmert wäre!
