Spooky Men’s Chorale

Choir of Origin… Spooky v Dusty

Mullumbimby Civic Hall | Saturday 11 August | 8pm | $35/$25/$15

Beard v Beard. Weird meets Weirder. Battle of the Baritones. Harmonies of the Hombres!

For one night only, the pride of Mullumgrad plays host to the renowned Spooky Men’s Chorale. An unforgettable evening of song and more song, sweltering charms and so much facial hair. So much! The two groups faced off
in a little chitty chat…

When men sing together…

Dusty: The world is better place, instamatically.

Spooky: Shed happens.

The dark side of a men’s choir…

Dusty: Is like worm in bottle of Mezcal. Looks like worm, tastes like worm, is not worm. We gather, we sing, but we no sleep afterwards.

Spooky: Is seldom seen.

What people don’t realise is that…

Dusty: Russian music is only actual music. Everything else just cheap imitation or bourgeois plot to distract working class from central issues.

Spooky: They’re several steps ahead of us.

When a new man comes to us…

Dusty: Check his tractor for piston wear, his livestock for tick infestation, and wife for child-bearing capacity. Or else he go straight on waiting list!

Spooky: He typically tries too hard.

Women at our concerts…

Dusty: Assess us for potency and beard strength, enjoy leetle bit music then quickly back concentrate on central issues.

Spooky: Don’t need us to complete such a minefield sentence.

It is our dream to…

Dusty: Produce surgical-quality gherkin liqueur from Main Arm plantation and fast track typewriter production for expected increase demand in next 20 years.

Spooky: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

When we are onstage…

Dusty: Like Putin, we revel in robust glory of Soviet history; like Trump we fake it and hope no-one notice; and like Turnbull, well actually he just slapping wet fish, we not like him at all!

Spooky: Nothing else matters!
