SKELTERFUGUE .... Australia

(b) Deadly Earnest 6'05
(10 canons) [independent]
Another oddity. Skelterfugue describe their work as the musical vanguard of the neo-modernist movement. At first I thought this was a retro approach to a modern rock outfit, but there is probably something deeper going on - original instrumental parody perhaps? Hugo CRAN - drums, Michael CONOLAN - cello, Brione FIELD - keyboards, Henri GRAWE - saxophones & Jacob TAURINS - keyboards.
