The Cesarians is Charlie Finke, Justine Armatage, Jan Noble, Suzi Owen, Alison Beckett and Beverley Crome. A cabaret group from London.
If the spirit of rock & roll has hauled himself out of bed. He’s called up his demons, put on his best black suit, and returned to the city’s dark places. The Cesarians would most likely be the result.
This music is dark, mellow, and carry the influences or being a heavy cabaret, trompet folk, and piano dub kind of band.
They’ve released one album so far, The Cesarians 1, in 2009.
“Dethstar” is an inventive and upbeat alternative trumpet folk rock piece that growing instantly through the song, and it literally just gets better and better.
The Bookhouse Boys are a 9 piece band, based in London, consisting of Paul Van Oestren (vocals/guitar), Catherine Turner (vocals), Chris Pollard (guitar), Pete Emms (drums), William Emms (bass), JP Fellows (keyboards), Heddy Korachi-Alaoui (drums), Natty Defriend (trumpet), and Charlie Beringer (trumpet).
On the debut album “The Bookhouse Boys” they released in 2009, you can hear everything from rockabilly surf, to ska punk, ska rock, cabaret – and cabaret surf from some creative and extremely well established musicians.
The last track on the album, “I believe” is a perfect example of a classic rockabilly surf piece that almost sounds like a heavy cabaret ballad.
