They're more loud than Nervous and don't expect the Weimar sound. Think Tom Waits as East London born Qawalli Gypsy King, backed by Joy Division with Captain Caveman clubbing a tympanum as a drum set.

BIO:

NERVOUS CABARET is what is meant by a tour de force. The Brooklyn/NYC based sextet boasts two drummers, intensely powerful bass rhythm, soaring horns and a wild throated open-heart on vocals. Their live performances are bloodily moving: by turns Ellington, Post punk Led Zeppelin, and vaudeville orchestra. The band’s sound crashes from violent to fragile in staggered stride, rips the heart out of the room only to offer it to the wallflower. If Trenchtown lay on the Bay of Bengal, was frequented by shipmates of Rimbaud and Conrad trafficking in amplifiers and amphetamines, Nervous Cabaret would serve as the house band in the last bar in the weirdest most lawless gin alley.

In November 2005 Nervous Cabaret signed a licensing deal with Naïve records (FR) for territories outside North America. The self-titled full-length album has since been released in France, Belgium and Italy, with release in Germany coming in spring 2007.

Nervous Cabaret has received unanimous critical acclaim throughout Europe for both the album, and for their live performances resulting in the booking of three extensive tours in the first half of 2006. Highlights include: Trans Musicales where they shared the stage with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Primal Scream, and Gang of Four. And, the Dour and Arezzo Wave festival stages alongside the likes of Animal Collective, Dandy Warhols, Echo and the Bunnymen, Herbaliser, Anthony & The Johnsons, Liars, LCD Soundsystem, Bell Orchestra, Two Gallants, Coco Rosie and many many more.

Lyrics

Ratatat Heart

Written By: Elyas Khan... a.k.a. KiD [SiC]

Wash my brains
And put them back in
Strap that backpack around my shoulders
Tuck those three little wires under my hat
And here I go....
The remote control, Ratatat...
At your service.

Through tight pipes, over trees
Mastering my fear
Degree on degree
I stroll boldly across wide open spaces
Where my enemies hiss
But these dangerous activities
They only fill me with electronic bliss.

Dearest dear, I hope that you understand
That last night was only a comedy
I apologize for being so confusing, But you see,
This is my only remedy
For a broken...
Ratatat Heart.

This is my only remedy,
For a broken,
Broken,
Ratatat Heart

Break In Violence

Written By: Elyas Khan

BREAK IN VIOLENCE:

Open the door
Open the the day
Open my face
Open the holes in my head
You can walk through my house

Look at my eyes
Look at my skin
Look at my smile
Check out the grin on my face
You know I’m asking for it

I can hear your
I can hear your
I can hear your
I can hear your
I can hears your ears ringing
Baby what’s your name

She said I’m any body
To anybody
Anyone
Anyone
Anyone who really loves me
You’ll never know my name

(repeat)
