In a northern suburb of Brisbane in Queensland Australia, the Medicine Show was conceived, labored, born and then nurtured.
The music is a true suburban jambalaya of influence ranging form Delta Blues through to post WWII Chicago Blues to REAL Country and Hillbilly music. Along with this is generous dash of Garage / Alternative vibe . A trio of fine musicians in the tradition of the Dirty Three, the Bad Seeds, Tom Waits and Howlin’ Wolf.
The Medicine Show are constantly performing, all along the east coast of Australia and enjoys regular radio airplay through community radio stations around the country. The Medicine Show receives a lot of radio support throughout the E.U. and the United States and Japan, via internet community and college and mainstream radio.
We have also been approached to submit works for various soundtrack productions and is represented in the U.S. by FreePlay Music- http://www.freeplaymusic.com .Of these the most exciting to date would be the Suicide Girls Television Series, which is currently in production .So ostensibly, the band is doing alright.
“The Medicine Show peddle Australia’s most potent magic potion! - Peddling an elixir to transform even the stubbornest of bastards!” Odyssey Productions
“The Medicine Show dishes it up with dirt in true roots style with storytelling style lyrics. I dig the track Dig Deep! "You gotta Dig Deep if you wanna find Oil." Yee-haw!” - Sharla Cartner MusicFanBiz Myspace
“……a swampy groove, ripping riffs and a gravelly scat that had everyone thumping in time. The set was tight, with a warm, vibrant sound and an addictive build that kept punters enthralled until the last note.” -Pepa Wolf -MusicLife Media
“Their music has the space to bounce and shimmy around. Move yourself forward toward the stage. Have a lesson in soulful sounds.”Matty M- 4ZZZ
