Equal parts monk, Visigoth and village idiot, the Spooky Men’s Chorale explores the paradoxes of latter day masculinity with unbridled enthusiasm, a pleasing array of deep harmonies, and a twinkle in their eye. They’ve somehow mastered the impossible art of being both musically immaculate and blitheringly stupid, whilst essaying an increasingly preposterous array of subject matter: tools, mastodons, their own body parts, surfing, gluttony, and how to scare off hostile neighbouring tribes at 5.43 am.
Arising from the Blue Mountains in Australia, the Spooky Men’s Chorale have been gleefully smashing up and reassembling the world of men’s singing since 2001, and will now continue their long, slow, global conquest with a 6th tour of the UK, tenderly brandishing their latest album “Warm”, a long requested idyll in a vast, bottomless, massively comforting musical sofa.
For this very special evening the Spooks will be joined by a hand-picked collection of 200 local choir members (many without beards) to lift the top off the Colston Hall with a glorious vocal collaboration, including a world premiere by Spookmeister Stephen Taberner.
