Twisted Cabaret Compilation

‘Twisted Cabaret Volume 1’s’ goal is to unite some of the most important modern artists who are using, altering or diverting the codes and rules of Weimar Cabaret. The time when burlesque, darkness and comedy appeared in Cabarets is now ended, but its legacy and influence on some modern artists is still prevalent, particularly when times are unkind to satire and auto derision.

Each in their musical style, the selected artists revive a polemic that opposes the standardization of, the mind, customs and way of life. Far from the popular comic cliché or excessive glamour, Twisted Cabaret sets out to be at the same time poetic and thoughtful. Uniting well known artists as ‘The Residents’, ‘The Legendary Pink Dots’ or ‘The Dresden Dolls’, Twisted Cabaret Vol.1 also introduces emergent artists of this genre, where the “Packaging” is as important as the content.

As well as having rich and qualitative content(s), we have also favoured an esthetical mix of old iconography, but with a modern style.

Two versions will be available: a regular digipack audio CD and a Deluxe Edition which will include the regular audio CD, plus an additional DVD of music videos and live performances of the artists presenting the other sides of their work.

Artists involved :

Their style has been described as having a strange and dark humour. A Brechtian and Gypsy cabaret. They are also notorious for singing controversial songs involving bestiality, prostitution and blasphemy.

A songwriter, pianist, harpist, singer, one of the original Johnsons and also former tree climber; Baby Dee has toured extensively with Current 93 and Marc Almond.

EVELYN EVELYN (rare track)
Evelyn Evelyn are conjoined twin multi-instrumentalist songwriter sisters, quickly making their mark on the scene. The delightful and talented sisters will amaze you.

Originally inspired by dreams of British 1930s crooner Al Bowlly and the American actress Tuesday Weld. Stephen Coates composes music to create the sounds of a future as imagined in the time of the Jazz age.

THE DRESDEN DOLLS (rare track)
This mythic brechtian punk cabaret band is a duet, a fight and a love affair, between a drum kit and a piano, led by the powerful voice of Amanda Palmer and the perfect hits of Brian Viglione.

Budam can sing just as freely about love, sex and murder. You can't escape the fact that Budam is very talented at making very catchy melodies.

THE MAXI MONSTER MUSIC (exclusive track)
This poetic and destructive pseudonym hides Le Maximum Kouette, which after years of touring in all the french venues, decided to adapt its own repertoire to Cabaret and Freak Shows.

No need to introduce the most famous unknown artist of the music business! Legendary by their anonymity they are highly recognizable via their unique aesthetic and dissonance, which has became one of their trade marks.

A Japanese duet featuring Sachi on violin and Yuka on vocals, piano and accordion. These charming little devils reinvent worldwide known fairy tales with an extravagant freedom.

From Glamrock to electro-clash, from baroque to new-wave, the french quatuor plays an original post-punk cabaret led by the theatrical voice of Mary Komplikated.

VERMILLION LIES exclusive track
Vermillion Lies has charmed audiences all over the world with songs of great beauty, creativity, humour and love.

Little Annie began her career as Annie Anxiety forming Annie & The Asexuals. After working with punk bands like Crass, she spent a decade as house diva for Adrians Sherwoods label, honing her contralto vocal & urban torch style writting.

From the Dutch punk music scene, De Kift is originally inspired by litterature more than daily life.

THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS (exclusive track)
They are the unexpected meeting between Kraftwerk, Syd Barrett and Magma. An unbelievable productivity, always touring all over the world for the pleasure of a loyal and fanatic audience.

Aranos was born in Bohemia, where since the age of 8, he has never stopped playing in folk orchetra, jazz ensemble, gypsie or rock bands. The meeting with electronic music gives to his work a polymorphous and unique sound.

When Marcella Puppini, the lead singer of the Puppini Sisters, cares for cabaret, she gives birth to a monster child of sensuality and black humour wonderfully supported by the talent of an über female orchestra.

JOEL HUBAUT & eL TiGeR CoMiCs GRouP (exclusive track)
eL TiGeR CoMiCs GRoUP is an underground band centered around a visual artist and Joel Hubaut, a global and furious performer, a transversal and unique artist.

The Muncie Brothers conceived Little White Rabbit Still Bleed Red to be the musical equivalent of painting over wallpaper. They really put the DOO back in Root-Dee-Doo.
