Uh!Oh!

by Hetty Kate & The Twenty 20s

Uh!Oh! - A Retro 50's Beatnik Lounge Exotica Extravaganza "The disc focuses, lovingly, on standards from the 1950s and laces them, bizarrely but immaculately, with vestigial psychedelia, electro-acoustica and surf twangadelica." Chris May - All About Jazz

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Martini Exotica - Beatnik '50s Retro Swing - Surf Club Lounge.. Peggy Lee meets David Lynch on a midnight train through the Hollywood Hills.

Standards, Buddy Holly, Devo, The Buzzcocks and Originals

"The disc focuses, lovingly, on standards from the 1950s and laces them, bizarrely but immaculately, with vestigial psychedelia, electro-acoustica and surf twangadelica. The result sounds like a David Lynch movie looks, but with a warm embrace replacing Lynch's icy grip on the spine." Chris May - All About Jazz September 2011

The Twenty 20s are a six piece band from Melbourne Australia, led by the British/Australian retro voiced jazz vocalist Hetty Kate. Featuring five of Melbourne's finest, all band leaders across Blues & Roots, Americana, Jump Swing, Cajun, Zydeco and Big Band genres. This group takes the listener on an all encompassing aural journey.. blue, weird, hip.. and always delivering a vision of retro beatnik 50's lounge with a surf-a-delic touch.

"The genius instrumental ingredient, however—the ace in the hand—is tenor guitarist Dale Lindrea. The tenor guitar is a four-string instrument tuned in fifths, a structure which more or less necessitates unusual chord voicings and big interval jumps. To these Lindrea adds psychedelia, blues riffs, surf tropes, loops and a magic bag of electro-acoustic effects. When they first reach the ear, his counterpoints to Kate's vocals may sound startlingly, crazily strange, but, a nanosecond later, they reveal themselves as absolutely on song. It is reality, Jim, but not as we know it." Chris May - All About Jazz - September 2011

Lineup: Hetty Kate (Vocals), Dale Lindrea (Tenor Guitar), Dean Hilson (Saxophones), Vinnie Bourke (Trumpet/Flugel), Steve Purcell (Double Bass), Sharky Ramos (Drums) and special guests..
