Sydney chainsaw-folk favourites The Crooked Fiddle Band have just packed their bags and have headed off to Europe for a tour but they’ve left us with an awesome parting gift – their new single “Kings of the Mud”.
“”Kings of the Mud” is about festivals – the transient, dusty and muddy other worlds we visit regularly – and the way you just give in to the elements and get amongst the puddles,” the band explained. “You’ll also notice that it’s more of a song than is usual for us – lots of vocals going on, as well as some cinematic moments courtesy of Jess’ nyckelharpa (Swedish keyed fiddle), plus we finally got some of the yelling that we do live onto a recording! We recorded this one ourselves, we’ve had it kicking around for a while but hadn’t fit it onto an album. Hope you like it!”
