The Balkan Elvis Mikelangelo coming to the polo!

johnboy 2 October 2012 2


What’s more exciting than Canberra’s lost children Mikelangelo and the Tin Star coming home?


This just in:

Aprils Caravan and CMC present:



Sounding like they have barreled straight out of a classic Tarantino film, Mikelangelo and the Tin Star are all blazing tremolo guitars and thundering drums. Frontman Mikelangelo is part 50’s crooner, part beast possessed – the debonair bastard love child of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Lux Interior, with a voice deeper than the deep blue sea and the sharpest suit collection this side of the equator.
He formed the Tin Star in Melbourne in 2009 inspired by a love of The Shadows, Link Wray and Ennio Morricone movie soundtracks. The group quickly built a rabid fanbase through their live shows and festivals appearances. 2011 saw the release of their debut album ‘The Surf ‘n’ Western Sounds of Mikelangelo and the Tin Star’ on Laughing Outlaw Records. The album scored both FBI radio and PBS album of the week and a swathe of rave reviews across the music press. ‘The Surf ‘n’ Western Sounds’ also introduced audiences to the glamorous St Clare, her sultry vocals are one of the highlights of the album.
We are very pleased to announce that St Clare will be joining the The Tin Star live for their appearance at the Polish Club as the band return to their old stomping ground for a wild night of rock’n’roll. Opening the night are local Big Men The Fuelers, the night is presented by Aprils Caravan and there will be Vintage sets and fashions throughout the show.

Doors 7:30pm $15/ $12 Concession /$10 CMC Members

Mikelangelo and the Tin Star recently released a free download single ‘Walk The Waves’
Listen here:

“If Las Vegas had a beach, and a clone made from the mixed DNA of Elvis Presley and Nick Cave had a band that played surf rock on that imaginary beach, then the music Elvis Cave’s band played would sound like Mikelangelo And The Tin Star”. Rave Magazine

And with the Fuellers? Colour me excited.
