The Miserable Rich

formed from the remnants of various classical and folk ensembles from Brighton to essay songs that rely on catgut, horsehair and rosin rather than drums and amplified guitars. With intsruments like cello, violin and double bass the quintet makes music that sounds like a movie by Tim Burton. Grotesquely leftfield and nonetheless still edge cutting.
