NI Soul Troop
met studying music in college. Tom also rocks out on his cello in "Folk Noir" band The Winding Stair, Donal Scullion can be found singing and shouting in uncle-social, as well as doing a bit more singing and a bit less shouting with his solo, more acoustic material, Andrew Dougherty is the low down beat provider and all the way from Kentucky USofA Becca Hopkins provides her operatic lungs. The past few months the band has been growing and growing, causing stress, joy, frustration, band members joining, leaving, songs being learned, forgotten and relearned and finally relief after playing 2 fantastic shows in Belfast to great reception. Brass and woodwind players (Marc, David, Zoe and Brendan) and keys player (Conor) were recruited to expand the live sound. And with saxophone player Mary (who ya might recognise from The Winding Stair) blasting out a bit of saxy funk this is a big band sound of stomping soul and the finest funk.
are Belfast's indie-rock art-school chess-clubkids - Ros Blair, Russell Matbouli, John Macormac and Ryan Harkness - established May '07. Duchampions' namesake, Marcel Duchamp, godfather of conceptual art, abandoned the term 'artist' in 1917, after creating his infamous urinal. He switched his interests to cross-dressing and playing chess. And why not? Being duchampian is about being polymorphous - imagine the voice of Diamanda Galas, the arch lyrical wit and high camp of Morrissey, the wardrobe of Siobhan Fahey and the shoes of D. Boon, all mixed up in a Gus Van Sant movie with Tom Verlaine's high treble guitar, Tadzio's lonely-hunted hairdo, Calvin Johnston's beat happening and a bit of 'jeez, I can't find my knees' international Bobby. Duchampions have just recorded their first e.p. 'Mash Notes to the End of The Twentieth Century', with producer Warren Bell (Embers, Alloy Mental).
I hope to be spotted fondling a crow at this.
This is going to be great! Looking forward to finally seeing the NI Soul Troop tear it up.
loads of new tunes for this one
