A38: Phoebe Killdeer and the Short Straws
After Nadeah’s show late last year A38 continues in its overview of former Nouvelle Vague singers, with Phoebe Killdeer and her band of self-taught musicians The Short Straws taking to the stage this Saturday.
Described as coming from the same world as Tom Waits and Nick Cave, and delving into blues and rock territory, Australian-born Killdeer featured in the Nouvelle Vague group line-up with its bossa nova-style reprises of French classics before, apparently, being kicked out for bad behaviour.
Following the release of their first album, Weather’s Coming, in 2008, Phoebe Killdeer and the Short Straws will no doubt also be playing live music from their most recent album, Innerquake.
