"Funloving, upbeat music about the everyday life of a psychotic mind."
"David Goo writes songs about bugs, hairy men, hotels, Bon-Bon Jovi amongst other things... Be prepared for surrealism and sing-a-long from one of the most entertaining musicians on the circuit." Tastebuds TV
"Has achieved cult status" The London Paper
DULWICH UKULELE CLUB
A feast of ukulele action!
The Dulwich Ukulele Club are a large band armed with small instruments. Eight ukulele players, plus bassist and percussionist they play all original material ploughing a similar furrow to their south london compatriots the Alabama Three.
"A must see. No kidding." The Guardian
"Pick of the Year" The Telegraph
"A treat ...catch them when you can" The Londonist
Rural/vaudevillian folk outfit packing double basses, squeezeboxes, melodicas, acoustic guitars and "upbeat tunes so catchy you can hang your coat on them."
"Eccentric troubadours" The Guardian
A ballroom blitzkrieg of shimmying, sparkling, synchronised routines from this all-girl dance troupe, kicking their shiny white boots to 60s girl group classics. As seen on Charlie Brooker's TV show and BBC2's Culture Show, these stars of Ladyfest 2008 are not to be missed!
