We are Kabarette Obscura, a 3-piece Electro-Cabaret act, looking to combine traditional Cabaret with modern electro-sleaze, to create Weimar-Era Cabaret for the digital age.
We are looking to combine cabaret performance and character with pounding electronica and narrative lyrics. Imagine Tom Waits and Ute Lemper genespliced with Aphex Twin. I realise how overambitious that may sound - I guess time will tell whether I my mouth is writing cheques my talent can't cash...
We have a website here which we will mainly be using to keep our work-in-progress in one place we can all access easily, and to trade ideas between rehearsals. Once the project is fully up and running, this will be turned into a mailing list/info page for the band, so feel free to sign up now if you want to. We intend to spend the next 4 or 5 months solidly preparing the musical and performance aspects, ready to launch in 2006.

Below, in other posts, I will report how we are doing, give links to mp3s when available, and (hopefully) gig dates as they arrive.
So, come on kids, let's put on a show! ;)
