The Old Spice Boys

This article is from 2006.

Taking the barest of instruments, ukulele, snare drum and single string tea chest bass, this trio conjure up the best in vaudeville style grooves. It might be raw but Azo Bell, Tim Reeves(ex-Mungo Jerry and T-Rex) and Billy Milroy fill tracks with a mix of humour and accomplished musicianship.

This is the European premiere for the Aussie trio and they’ll be showcasing their own material such as soon to be vaudeville classics ‘I’m not an Alcoholic (I Just Enjoy a Drink)’ or ‘I Wanna get Stoned (and Pick my Nose)’. Not forgetting their own unique interpretations of the likes of Prince, Miles Davis or Ian Dury. This is anything but serious, but you’ll still be amazed at the music they can coax out of their basic musical contraptions. (Henry Northmore)
