Musically corner-stoned by Eamon McNelis’ pivotal trumpet, Jess Guille’s dulcet vocals, slinky upright bass and watertight drums, “A Great Day For The Race” sets up a riot of colour and rhythm right from onset. From the jaunty gypsy Charleston-esque styled groove of opening track ‘The Boogieman’ into the gospel leanings of ‘Apocalypse’, the “funtown, population 2” plea of ‘Solitude’, through to the funereal strains of ‘Flee As A Bird’, much like the bands renowned live show, “A Great Day For The Race” is a raucous, sweet, frivolous, frenetic and deliciously irrepressible affair.
Their 2nd album to date, “A Great Day For The Race” was recorded at Melbourne’s Sing Sing studios, mixed by Adam Rhodes and mastered by Ross Cockle. Lyrically, the album covers all the standard pre occupations - mortality, celebration, life on the road, 40 ft roosters in Northcote, convicts dressed as kangaroos, harems, outer space and vestal virgins.
