    Music City Burlesque Presents: The Ford Theatre Reunion

    The Ford Theatre Reunion had its most humble beginnings in a dirt-floored cellar.

    The Ford Theatre Reunion had its most humble beginnings in a dirt-floored cellar. When Reverend and Zionist Minister Joe Harbison met with Alex Johns, a violent lithographer of some small acclaim, and the all-singing all-dancing meat puppet Eric Myers, it was initially to form a plan of rapid take over in the event of the inevitable zombie apocalypse. As new members joined it soon became impossible to fit in the exceedingly cramped hidey hole and they emerged into the light of reason and a room full of instruments. Finding themselves more adept at creating nasty tales of murder and mutiny with intoxicating tendrils of music americana, they soon stumbled in front of applauding audiences.

    Like creepy crawlies towards a bare bulb, they were soon sheathed by nearly naked women and sickly looking circus performers (read: freaks). This suited their fancy well enough, and the Burning House Side Show featuring Deadly Sins Burlesque began harassing and tantalizing audiences for the bands' variety showcases.

    After releasing the appropriately titled Murder and Mutiny EP, they expanded their horizons, completely revamping their sound while holding steady to their more gnarled roots. Calavera Catrina, released in late 2010, presents a varied and swirling soundscape that refuses to settle down, at times stark and suspicious and others oppressively raucous, this album flies in the face of musical expectation. It also tells tales of murderous children, starving towns, and gambling gone awry. Stealthily recorded by J Groves at Sneak Attack! Studios, the album bares the latin roots inherent in the surly eight piece.
