Event description

Description

Cartoon Violence is one of the fastest rising talents on the current UK ska scene. Hailing from the wilds of Mid Wales, they are fronted by the formidable vocalist and piano/organ player, Chuzz; whose unique stage presence builds upon soaring vocals, skanking piano and crazy Hammond lines. He’s played with a plethora of Ska artists, from Neol Davies to The Toasters.

A sparkling and intriguing vocal duet has presented itself with the inclusion of Smoke Like A Fish member Sash, who also adds Sax, while Chuzz’s former band mates from 3 Minute Warning; Matt and Harold (regular Toasters drummer) complete the rhythm section with, original Cartoon Violence guitarist, Milky who returns to the fold.

The Cartoon Violence sound is an insanely catchy affair that mixes super bouncy 2 tone ska with distinctly British sounding pop & indie stylings. Their songs capture the classic Brit Pop storytelling vibe of the likes of The Kinks, Madness, Squeeze, The Hotknives & Parklife-era Blur, with each tune lyrically being like a mini kitchen sink drama in its own right! Endless soaring energy, great sing-a-long choruses & wonderful piano/organ melodies are all hallmarks of the band’s unique ska sound.
