Mysterious Blues Experience
Low Fi Punk Blues & Voodoo Rites from London. Once described as «revolution through deconstruction», The Mysterious Blues Experience is drink and dirty slap-fest in the back of a truck stop bathroom. Bordello blues and snake-like grooves to tickle, tease and amuse.
Emerging from a forgotten time, when Rock n Roll was raw, dirty and stripped to the bone. Not for the purists, or the faint hearted, Mystery Action fuse elements of Surf, Garage and Rockabilly and bastardise them into a transfixing mayhem.
