And The Bedlam Six
With their brand of 'Lyric-Driven Dirt-Swing' (an incomparable rendering of jive-smitten cabaret blues) Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six have infiltrated almost every creative niche, being adapted into animated short films, burlesque routines, musical theatre, fringe festival revues, documentary soundtracks, motion picture scores and even a comic strip.
Over the years they have won praise and support from the likes of Supergrass, The Mighty Boosh, Har Mar Superstar, UB40, Mark Steel, The Hell's Angels, BBC Radio and even the Beat Poet biographer Barry Miles - both for their furious onstage energy and Louis' manic lyrical gymnastics.
Their infamous live shows - incorporating rock, jazz, folk and theatre influences - have proved time and time again that the group is at home on any line-up, even sharing the bill with such disparate acts as Motorhead, Eliza Carthy and The Blockheads.
