The Cave Singers
Dancing On Our Graves
Watch the video for 'Dancing On Our Graves' by The Cave Singers, it's taken from the debut album Invitation Songs and will be unleashed across the UK and Europe on February 11th 2008 through Matador.
This exceptional trio are writing and performing some of the most hypnotising folk music we have today. Though Quirk spent time in Seattle post-punk group Hint Hint, Lund in Cobra High, and Fudesco as bassist for Pretty Girls Make Graves and the legendary Murder City Devils, maybe they've been folk artists all along and we just haven't been open to the idea.
The band maintains that they never made a conscious effort to play a certain 'style' of music, and that, besides the odd Dylan record, their favorite bands are still The Replacements, Pixies and Fleetwood Mac. With that in mind, we do believe it was Big Bill Broonzy who quipped: "All music is folk music."
You see, The Cave Singers' music demands attention. Their majesty is there to hear, that is clear, and soon, they'll be over here playing their first live shows outside the States with a tour coinciding with the album's release scheduled.
The Cave Singers are:
Pete Quirk - Vocals, Guitar, Melodica & Harmonica.
Derek Fudesco - Guitar & Bass Pedals.
Marty Lund - Drums & Guitar.
