Prawns With Horns

I saw these guys once at Yac It Up in Melville, I think anyway. I was really into ska and had no idea they existed before that fateful day around 1999. I was kinda bummed too, like I’d missed out on a local band with a horn section who could actually play. I never saw them again after that day either, go figure. They were a ‘wacky’ party band of sorts. That time I saw them was the first time I saw anyone ever use a real theremin on stage, it ruled.

Annyway it seems they toured outside of Australia quite alot, no mean feat for a pre-internet band from Perth. I’ll let their website do the rest of the horn blowing for them.

Here is their 1999 LP ‘Ampersand’.

And their 1996 LP ‘Cisco And His Disco’.
