Hey, Osstralya, New Orleans will be in your neck of the woods at the end of February. The New Orleans Bingo! Show, that is, will perform with The Polyphonic Spree for Southern Comfort“s Australian Carnivale Tour, Feb. 17 28 at a number of locations on your island-continent-nation.
Often covered in colorful, flowing Jesus-gospel robes and a happy demeanor, the Spree reminds me of a cross between Heaven’s Gate and the Teletubbies conceived under the influence of grape KoolAid. Don’t drink it, Mr. The Turk, don’t drink it! D didn’t know who they were so went on a Googlaphonic Spree and unearthed this online gem, a remake of Nirvana’s Lithium. With sock puppets. Friend Mark wonders, “Maybe if Kurt had approached his work from this direction, he wouldn’t have blown his brains out?”
