Things are se to get a little spooky at Newcastle City Hall next month.
That’s because the Spooky Men’s Chorale will be hitting town on the back of their soon-to-be-released seventh album Welcome The Second Half.
The album from the Blue Mountains-bred funnymen is a collection which explores yet more corners of the great spooky room, including baggage carousels at the airport, the fine art of building pyramids, and – more poignantly – what it’s like to be closer to the end than to the start.
Armed only with their voices, The Spooky Men’s Chorale commentates on the absurdity and grandeur of the modern male. Sometimes mighty, sometimes foolish, sometimes blissfully tender-hearted, the Spooky Men strike a deeply human chord.
Formed in the Blue Mountains in 2001 by Christchurch-born spookmeister Stephen Taberner, these guys soon attracted attention with a judicious combination of Georgian table songs, pindrop beautiful ballads,
highly inappropriate covers, and immaculate man anthems like Don’t Stand Between a Man and his Tool, and We Are Not a Men’s Group.
If you are looking for a great night of tunes performed by a group who have been described as ‘nice idiots’ then The Spooky Men’s Chorale could be just the ticket.
Catch the Spooky Men’s Chorale at Newcastle City Hall on Friday 31 May. Get your tickets here.
