Boneshakers!! & fluc pres. LIVE: Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir

Friday, 19.7. 21:00 // Club/Konzert

LIVE: Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir (Roots/Blues/Folk/Country/CAN)

DJs Peter Nachtnebel & King Camp

Yup. They´re a quartet. And they´re not from the mountains… The music, on the other hand, is not a joke. People often mention whiskey, brimstone, the Mississippi Delta and the Appalachian Mountains when they talk about their music. There are few bands who conjure the intensity of the original blues and folk music pioneers while uniting roots and rock audiences. The Agnostics are one of them.

Hollering, growling, and high, lonesome keening. Duelling slide guitars, tin can banjo, frenetic finger picking, sheet metal percussion, and pounding upright bass. That´s The Agnostics.

Critics drop adjectives like `punk´, and make comparisons with Tom Waits, and Captain Beefheart. The band maintain that the punk spirit was born in Delta and the mountains. Beefheart and Waits know that too.

Since 2001 The Agnostics have fostered a devoted following in their native Canada and garnered impressive reviews for their first two releases, `St. Hubert´ (2003) and `Fighting and Onions´ (2005). Word spread across the prairies and over the Atlantic. Mark Lamarr is a convert - they played rambunctious BBC Radio 2 sessions for him in 2007 and 2008 - and so is the roots legend, Seasick Steve. After gigs together at the Open House Festival in Belfast in 2006 and 2007 Steve proclaimed them “my new favourite band.”

The band went on hiatus in 2010 after another successful tour of Ireland and England. Then some of AMGC collaborated with Jackson Phibes of Canadian garage-punk legends Forbidden Dimension to record the critically acclaimed Campfire Tales (2012) under the name Agnostic Phibes Rhythm & Blood Conspiracy.

Now it is 2013. The Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir has reunited and are touring Europe because some festivals and promoters wanted them to bring their ruckus to the continent for the first time. Let the fun begin again.
