Artist: MONSIEUR POMPIER’S TRAVELLING FREAKSHOW (Dublin, Ireland)
Who: Misfits making make music about inside-out cats, weird doctors and banana boys.
New album: TEATIME TERRORS
Released: 16 July 2021 via Cleopatra Records
Info: Inspired equally by Stephen King, folk horror and 80s B-movie soundtracks as it was by eccentric music acts like The Residents, Sparks and Devo, Teatime Terrors falls into a strange musical crevice between bizarro pop opera, a demented audiobook, and downright bonkers synth-punk chaos.
Turn Up The Volume: Puzzling eccentricity. 2021 madness. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Freaks Club Band. Psych-o-delic entertainment. This town ain’t big enough for Sparks and Mister Pompier. Synth-asia pop extravaganza. French cancan. Kraftwerk bleeps. Outlandish Frank Zappa & the mothers of invention orchestra. Toothbrush. Ne t’inquiète pas sois cinglé. Don’t worry be a weirdo .
Single: The Ear Fairy…
