A cheerfully gloomy sound
Raskardaš Orkestar takes a leap beyond music and lands slightly off to the side from full-fledged cabaret. It’s in that unkempt and belittered area that they create their own electromechanic slap bang variety act. Beards fly in the wind that bursts out of saxophone bells as Raskardaš Orkestar makes their way towards your town.
The quirky urban landscape combined with used records by Tom Waits, Vinicio Capossela and Alfred Schnittke produced the odd environment where the band emerged out of thin air with a flourish of horns, a double bass, a guitar, a kettle of drums, and a button accordion. Over time they acquired all sorts of companions that would inhabit a deserted circus: pantry hawks, enamored bicycles, diatonic teapots, and stray Danish gnomes carrying trunks and chests full of ladies, old newspapers and things that make a tinny kind of clang.
