The Crooked Fiddle Band - Kings of the Mud

The Crooked Fiddle Band - Kings of the Mud
The Crooked Fiddle Band have become a cult favourite around the world, with 4 European tours cementing their place as festival favourites, and 2 albums recorded with Steve Albini in Chicago. A whirlwind of folk fiddle, tempered with epic post-rock build ups and the energy of a punk warehouse party, the band was handpicked by Brian Eno, who said 'I've never heard anything like it!' For their 3rd album, the band wanted to bring something personal: Another Subtle Atom Bomb is all of the band's angst, frustations and hopes around climate change, set to music. Experimental sounds abound, with Jess Randall's creaking, scratching fiddle roars, and Mark Stevens' buzz-saw double bass recorded through a rattling snare drum. But bringing it all home is the band's way of using energy as ecstatic expression, making the fantastical feel down-to-earth.

About this track...

Kings of the Mud is based loosely on a traditional Macedonian song, Trop Nalo Oro. Originally intended to be a loving ode to the feeling of being lost in an alternate world at music festivals, the lyrics take on a slightly different tone when paired with this album's climate-change-angst themes. 'No one knows/where we go/swallowed by night-blackened earth.'
