Sensually precise groove infected music emanating from Sydney’s inner west, Joseph Liddy and the Skeleton Horse as it is today formed in 2014 and is made up of anywhere from 9-12 members. With the release of album length ep ‘the god is named Abrasax’ in late 2014, the band became known locally for it’s funky fuzzed out late night dance marathons in local clubs, bars and festivals and as the band has developed, they have expanded their sound laying down more uplifting rhythms infused with jazz harmony and technicolour blue eyed soul.
Rising from the ashes of former projects and sharing/borrowing members from many other musical endeavours (The Middle East, The Fighting League, The Mountains, Matt Corby, Alby, Bree Tranter, Ace Romeo, Meat World, Skeleton Jack, The Andy Golledge band, Frequent Flyers Club, Stolen Violin, Twin Fires, Lacey Cole and the Lazy Colts, Thelma plum, Tuka and more), the band is known for its proficiency of musicianship and wild, jammed out improvisational compositions that feature regularly in their live performances transferring contagiously to all-too-willing-to-dance audiences.
Preaching themes of universal love and equality through their smooth tunes and diverse musical community, Joseph Liddy and the Skeleton Horse have cemented themselves as one of the country’s most compelling live and recorded musical experiences.
The band’s latest release ‘The Big Sarong’ was recorded during 2015-2016 and is now set for release and ready for you to own and take home either on wax, CD, or digitally through their friends at Gaga digital.
Joseph Liddy is touring the album July 2016 playing in Byron Bay, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, and Sydney with a huge line up of local acts.
