Skeleton$ (better known to us as Skeleton$ & the Girl Faced Boys) play Whelan’s on Thursday 12th of March. Their sound has been describedby Uncut as ‘Hugely ambitious and inventive,jazzy jams, blissed-out psychedelia, avant folk and electronic noise underpinned by funky, Can-like mantras.’ The band are from Ohio and after self-releasing three long-players on the Shinkoyo label, they have refined their particular brand of pop music on the Ghostly International label as Skeleton$ & the Girl Faced Boys.
Now a four-piece (Jonathan Leland, Tony Lowe, Jason McMahon and Matt Mehlan), last winter in Times Square Skeleton$ recorded, engineered, performed, arranged and mixed Money which was released at the end of last year on Tomlab.
They will be joined on the night by The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock. Tickets €12 plus booking fee, WAV, City Discs, Ticketmaster, www.tickets.ie.
