Spooky Jefferson's Ideal Lunch Box

Ska merchants with a big band sound, this seven piece from North East England are dark, progressive & damn right eerie...

In 2012 on a cold summer’s eve, a ghastly air blew leaves from the trees. The clouds did descend and the fog filtered in, to a town full of folk who were laden with sin. Taverns deserted, with few men to atone, who stayed out at night and left their wives home. Without any atmosphere depression set in, no ladies, no dancing no hearts could they win.

Then something awoken and sat up dead straight, inside the asylum within the locked gate, it yawned and stretched and then put on its clothes, a top hat and neck scarf and jacket to pose. This was no monster but indeed a man, who danced through the asylum and hatched his grand plan! With his slumber over this town he’d rebuild, the people his audience and a band be his guild. He crept through the window and climbed through the fence, with a skip in his step full of confidence.

For this place to change strange people he’d need, to make soothing vibes with a ball breaking beat. First was a Dr who liked to play bones, with surgeon like accuracy and hypnotic tones. Next was the merchant who collected folks crap, who played crazy rhythms and beat drums to scrap. On strings was a strange man who stacked things on shelves, when who was unwatched he played with himself. On horns was the towns local sexual star, who made woman feint when he drove past in his car. On bass was a man full of mystery he was known just as that, he never went hungry, have you seen my cat?

They formed an alliance of the musical kind, they had only one thing alone in their minds. To steal all your woman and bleed your town dry and when they were done the world they would fly. For this band was led by a man so insane, he wrote all his rants into songs that they play, this is our story and our tale to tell, welcome to The lunch box, welcome to Hell…
