Gertrude weave the electric cello, melodica and clarinet with traditional rock instruments to create a unique melting pot of sound. Live, the band is energetic, rhythmic and intense – with comedy moments thrown in for good measure.Their new single is called Nose Ring Piggy -a song about the ephemeral nature of love in a postmodern dystopia. A hypnotic 7/4 time signature trips out against beautiful clarinet melodies,a rolling bass line and cello moves.
Released for the Ship of Fools event on 2nd September.

Twisted skiffle, spit-and-sawdust vaudeville and Cockney-Brechtian folk-punk cabaret from Burch, the banjulele-bashing bard and his musical misfits including Dylan Bates,
typsy gypsy fiddler extraodinaire, the Paganini of Penge.
Manic minstrel Burch delivers his dark and gritty bittersweet ditties with wit and a vitriolic fervour.

*Ship of Fools promotes and supports the best of contemporary folk, electronica, neo-classical and avant-garde presenting a bi-monthly a selection of both established and up and coming acts.*
