Los Crocadilos

Los Crocodilos Our name is a fiction; it is our own criolle, a bastardization of two different tongues. So too is our music. As a song begins on an acoustic guitar, an English troubadour remembers the vibrance of the Rio Carnival. The percussion rattles, more primal still, stretched on a skin from Africa. The bass fat and funky drives away, then a flute trickles down, cascading in a whirlwind of sound as it dips and soars. Voices sing of times of violence, and of bruised hearts unbroken. At times, we lie in the sun, our jaws agape, with something akin to a smile. At times we twist beneath the surface, every roll and spin cutting through the flesh. There are no borders. The lines on the map mean less and less, scuffed away by so many crossings. The music we love lies on such blurred frontiers, it is the language of No Man’s Land.”

As with all half-improvised groups there are good gigs and bad gigs, consensus is that this one is probably at 70 or 80 percent strength. So’s a fair represention of the Gypsies of the drink.

Drunken Gypsies

A twisted jam band from the streets of Birmingham, the backbone, spine and fingers of a slice of the pie. The only act save Dj Limb to have played every pie in some form or other, not that thats something to boast about. Richard Shaw on the microphone, Tom laying down the pace, Liam, Dan and Chris on the six strings, Pete M on the bass, Pete N on the sax and myself on the buffalo skins.

Check out this old band site for some woefully out of date information, and downloads of old material. And also theres the myspace page and more videos on my youtube site.
