Inspired by early horror films, early ska, old-timey country, and the Blues, the UK’s first ever Old Timey Death Skiffle band ‘Jo Carley and the Old Dry Skulls’ announce their new album ‘Shake Them Rattlin’ Bones’. Recorded at East London’s Space Eko Studios, it features nine tales that lure you between the cracks of reality and take you downtown to the underworld, where the hobos and down and outs are up to no good, jug bands hustle for change on poor man’s corner, zombies walk the night and the Voodoo Priestess rules all...
Jo Carley and the Old Dry Skulls: This trio play a unique hybrid of early 20th Century music infused with dark imagery. Dedicated to the subversive, the world of Jo Carley and the Old Dry Skulls is dark, animated and unusual. Seeking to amuse and draw the audience into an underworld filled with wonder, the macabre and the imagination they combine elements of Vaudeville, Skiffle, early horror films, early ska, old-timey country, and the Blues.
The driving force is Tim’s One-man-band set-up with Kick-drum, foot tambourine and guitar while Jo uses sweet melodies to tell terrible things. This is made even more bewitching as she switches from fiddle to mandolin to washboard. They are joined by James Le Huray on double bass and banjo.
