Biography


Blue Bambinos are a dirty, twangy, experimental blues, rockabilly lounge jazz quartet. They play a weird party music - if they play at your party it might get weird, but if your part is weird enough they'll play."
- Andy Lowe, 12 Bar Club

Estatblished in early 2006, with an aim to become and live band that is as danceable and entertaining as well as embracing strange new sounds and high energy performance
Blue Bambinos publish a new venture in noise, borne of the wish to champion a paradoxically new and yet retro sound. Beat vocals, howling musical saw, lo-fi guitar sounds and a loud dirty primal rhythm pulsate throughout. It is neither blues, garage, punk, real r n’b, rockabilly or jazz, and yet weirdly, and slightly uncomfortably, it is all of them.

Vocals and Musical Saw. Justin Young, charismatic but chaotic. His energy is intoxicating and will either urge you to stand up and dance, or get up and slap him.
Guitar. Callum Sadler, deep dirty rattling blues, a dissident earsplitting player.
Bass. Jose Pereira, brooding dub player with a past of smokey Venezuelan reggae.
Drums. Meg Slim, old school garage punk. Her endurance is limitless and, like all the Bambinos, the sound is malleable and yet unyielding.

For the last two years the Blue Bambinos have played an elemental part in London’s live music circuit, have aired live on Resonance FM, and last year saw them play at Bestival on the Isle of Wight. This year they embarked on a brief tour of Como and outer Milan, Italy.

Influences - John Lee Hooker , Tom Waits, The Cramps, Soledad Brothers, Captain Beefheart, Marc Ribot & Ceramic Dog, Kip Tyler, Iggy Pop, The Count Five, Sun Ra, Thelonious Monk, The Sonics, The Monks
