The Dead Brothers

The Dead Brothers

"Records to ruin any party" is not an easy listen but it really grows on you. The band is based in Geneva.They describe their style as "Funeral Orchestra Mission". They helpfully suggest that it is a mixture of Gypsy music, Django Gypsy jazz, rock 'n' roll and country. The first thing that comes to mind was a mixture of Vaudeville style music hall, blues, and what really sums it up is the phrase "gothic jazz/blues." There is the most bizarre mixture of song styles, instruments, banjo, trombone, steel drums, lap steel guitars, accordion, Indian prayer box, tuba, French horn. Then there are the various vocal styles, mellow, strangled, mournful and whispered. Rhythms vary from Greek swing, Waltz, shuffles and rock beats. There are songs in English, French and German.
