Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls: Shake Them Rattlin’ Bones

London based Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls offer old time entertainment on their new album Shake Them Rattlin’ Bones, a steaming broth of cabaret, blues, ska, Veudeville, voodoo and skiffle. Horror stories are the main course, with a side orders of sex, trouble, and all-night parties. Singer Jo Carley is smack in the middle of the mix, with a snarl and a twinkle, while Tim Carley uses all his limbs to play his wide array instruments. James Le Huray provides both the bottom end and a joyful banjo to lighten the mood.

This is a band that is in their element playing tiny venues and getting under the skin of a bunch instant new fans. Intense and compelling music inspired by early 20th Century music. Bigots wil call it the root of all evil, but it is a history lesson through new songs that sound as old as the hills.
