Fred Smith and Men in Suits perform a collection of thinking men’s drinking songs. A musical celebration of misadventure – an exploration of the masculine psyche executed with a restrained buffoonery befitting the subject matter.
This performance is based on the album Urban Sea Shanties, originally recorded in 2009 in league with the Spookey Men’s Chorale.
“A delightful collaboration between two of the hottest acts on the Australian Festival Scene. Switch off your finer sensibilities and tune into your base chakra” – Andy Copeman, Daily Planet.
“Urban Sea Shanties shandhaies the listener into a rich musical journey from the bars of Birmingham to the flooded streets of New Orleans, from the Mosques of Karachi to the Dapto Dog Track…painting a musical picture of adventurous travel exploring a wide, colourful world…” – John Hogan, National Film and Sound Archives.
