Comprising of four musicians, King Twit were formed in the autumn of 2011.They are embarking on their first Irish tour with a 12-date jaunt around the country in support of their first set of recordings, Bicycle EP. They play guitar-based alternative folk rock pop in the vein of Captain Beefheart, Jonathon Richman, and the Shins.
With a solid five cat line-up and a killer new set Long Finger Bandits look ready to jive their way through 2012 offering a bedazzling show of genre-gymnastics as they blend jazz, ska, circus, and stories into their already hip-swinging rock and roll concoction. The face paint has not worn off, and neither have their mischevious unrehearsed stage frivolics, with spontaneous puppets, preaches, jokes, and jiggles. Oh yes, and trumpets, trumpets, trumpets!
King Twit and Long Finger Bandits play Danny Byrnes, Mullingar on Thursday May 10.
