WHAT'S NEW IN SPOOKYLAND...

UK TOUR UPDATE:
RAVE REVIEW FROM WALES

THE SPOOKY MEN’S CHORALE
Welsh Proms fringe, St David’s Hall, Cardiff: July 23, 2013
by Mick Tems

Here’s a message to the crowded Welsh Proms audience at the vast St David’s auditorium: you have been well and truly spooked! A coachload of black-clad Australian blokes strolled onto the stage, all wearing wide-eyed deadpan expressions and various hats, not to speak of one black kilt. The conductor, or spookmeister, (sporting winter headgear, which would be fine on the chilly mountain slopes but bemusing in the already-sweltering Hall) gestured for silence – and thus began the most surreal, highly enjoyable and gloriously mind-bending introduction to the new CD, The Spooky Men In History.

STOP PRESS

THE NEW SPOOKY ALBUM IS FINISHED

It is a glistening behomoth of indeterminate purpose, but certainly true to these sections of the spooky constitution:

Section 5: "The spookyman shall intonate the correct note with the correct vowel, consonant or diphthong at the correct time,
with the correct timbre and in the correct order, mindful of the correct attitude, bodily movement and/or gesture,
gait and volume while expressing the correct aspect of deadpan."
and
Section 19: "The spookyman, traversing ‘out there’ prairielands along esoteric paths of gratitude,
will elude the intertwingling threads of objectivity and grasp flailingly the incognisable big black."

We are quietly, massively proud of our handiwork,
and we can't wait for you to see and hear it....
The album will be available at all gigs on the UK tour, and in Australia within a month or so.
But in the meantime, feel free to have a SNEAKY PREVIEW.....
