The Surf ‘N’ Western Sounds of Mikelangelo and the Tin Star with special guest Saint Clare

Sat 6th Aug 2011 – The Surf ‘N’ Western Sounds of Mikelangelo and the Tin Star with special guest Saint Clare
Supported by Jordan C. Thomas (of Jordan & the Original Six)

KATOOMBA RSL CLUB
86 Lurline St, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Australia

If you have had the pleasure of catching Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen at previous Blue Mountains Music Festivals then you will already be excited by the announcement of Mikelangelo and the Tin Star making a special trip to Katoomba RSL Club! Featuring the same front man, with all his charismatic charm, theatricality and humour with a fabulous line of talented musicians, the Tin Star present their amazing unique sound filled with original songs, instrumentals and a blend of upbeat danceable tunes.

Mikelangelo and the Tin Star’s new album is receiving rave reviews. It is the brainchild of prolific and critically acclaimed Australian performer, singer and songwriter Mikelangelo. He formed The Tin Star in Melbourne in late 2009, inspired by a love of 50’s and 60’s instrumental guitar music and Western cinema soundtracks. Together the group have pioneered their own Surf ‘n’ Western sound.

With echoes of The Shadows, The Ventures, Dick Dale and Link Wray, Mikelangelo’s instrumentals find great realisation in the playing of The Tin Star’s lead guitarist Fiete Geronimo Geier. His tone, style and ability show him as an inspired musician, totally capable of holding his own in the company of these guitar luminaries.

The sultry songstress Saint Clare, who has become a big part of The Tin Star’s touring live show, makes her assured recording debut on The Surf ‘n’ Western Sounds Of… Her dreamy vocals add layers of mystery, playfulness and dark sexuality to the latter part of the record. She duets with Mikelangelo on lead album track Midnight Flower and with guitarist/producer Fiete Geronimo Geier on the haunting closing song of the album, which is his composition and lead vocal.

“If Las Vegas had a beach, and a clone made from the mixed DNA of Elvis Presley and Nick Cave had a band that played surf rock on that imaginary beach, then the music Elvis Cave’s band played would sound like Mikelangelo And The Tin Star”. Rave Magazine

“We were immediately transported to a land of surf-westerns, and the effect was spellbinding. Their collection of original songs and instrumentals was much more than smart pastiche. It was delivered with style, humour and conviction”. Culturazi

“MIKELANGELO and the Tin Star is the shock of the familiar colliding with the unexpected. The familiar is a blend of two of rock’s most instantly recognisable genres, surf and rockabilly. The unexpected is the outfit’s mix of bravura, theatricality and studio precision. Mikelangelo’s career has been characterised by swoops of genre bending. Variously he has been anti-art, art-rock, absurdist rock, Balkan Gypsy cabaret and ringmaster of internationally acclaimed burlesque circus La Clique. This listener was left breathless and satiated, yet already anticipating another play”. Anthony O’Grady The Australian

“Mad, bad and dangerous” Sydney Morning Herald

Don’t miss this fabulous opportunity to see this exciting and glamorous show. Mikelangelo and the Tin Star perform at Katoomba RSL Club with special guest Saint Clare. They will be supported by Jordan C. Thomas (of Jordan and the Original Six) who will be bringing his post war beat jazz and western stylings.
