As legend has it the 8Foot Felix passed through a Bermuda-triangle time-portal to arrive in our modern times. The crew of this 18th Century vessel are dedicated to mastering every musical genre they can wrap their ears around. In the five years since their official launch as a band, this raucous ball of sea-soaked ska, funk, gypsy, hip-hop and blues has gained a reputation for setting dancefloors on fire. And finally the first vintage of their endeavours has been harvested, to be launched as their debut album Mad Isle at Melbourne's Gasometer on Friday May 20th 2016.
Captured in Sing Sing Studios, and matured like fine wines at the hands of Melbourne producer Cy Gorman, the songs of Mad Isle are ready for release into the air waves. To celebrate their launch 8Foot Felix are crafting an unforgettable night at the Gasometer, with the assistance of a host of creative collaborators, including the indomitable The Seven Ups.
