Madness Takes It's Toll
The Yiddishe-Mame Ship has landed!! Take ancient Yiddish drinking songs from the shtetl in Eastern Europe; skull them down with some New York intellectual culture and Roaring Twenties Big Band sounds of Count Basie and Duke Ellington; drag it in to the 25th century courtesy of DJs Honeysmack and Puretone, as they pray at the altar of post-post-modernism, while Klezmorim kibbitz and kvetch en masse. A modern really big band fuelling tribal beats with audacious solos and improvised riffs. Vocals chanted by angelic singers Gideon Preiss and She Said Zed. Ferociously danceable, spiky, edgy, joyous, deep and satisfying, YID!’s 20+ members will take you on a trip to the deepest parts of your soul, please God you should come back, maybe stopping for a Danish along the way, k’neineh hora. Space Klezmer: EDM for hipster Jews.
