Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls

Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls combine the voodoo rhythms of 1930's ska, calypso and the blues with old timey vaudeville cabaret. Music that makes people wanna shake their bones!

Dedicated to the subversive, the world of Jo Carley and the Old Dry Skulls is dark, animated and unusual. Seeking to amuse and draw the audience into an underworld filled with wonder, the macabre and the imagination they combine elements of Vaudeville, Skiffle, early horror films, early ska, calypso, old-timey country, and the Blues. This trio play a unique hybrid of early 20th Century music infused with dark Cabaret.

The driving force is Tim’s One-man-band set-up with Kick-drum, hi-hat and guitar while Jo’s vocal delivery sounds like the leader of Satan's own gospel choir. This is made even more bewitching as she switches from fiddle to mandolin to washboard. They are joined by James Le Huray on double bass and banjo.

Released in May 2017, the debut album ‘Them Old Bones’ was recorded at SPACE EKO EAST Studio in East London and produced by Alex McGowan (Tiger Lillies, Urban Voodoo Machine, Wilko Johnson, Son of Dave, Jim Jones).

So why title the album 'Them Old Bones’? It’s because the songs sound old, maybe they have always been there, just waiting to be dug up and played by the right kind of weird musicians. It is the bones of the bands musical ancestors but with a modern vibe and a punk twist. The album is about Revenge, Witchcraft, Road Trips, Bad Omens, The Occult, Ancient Spells, Hardship, Protest, Dancing and having a good time along the way.

A band that lives to perform, Jo Carley & the Old Dry Skulls have been touring extensively up and down the UK and all across Europe at some of the best festivals and clubs on the circuit.

So how did all this start? They first met many moons ago when Tim's band borrowed Jo's drum kit at a gig in London. It was back in the 90’s and they were both playing in separate bands and involved in the underground metal and punk scenes. Years later Jo discovered the music of Bill Monroe and Alison Krauss, and began playing the mandolin and fiddle. She recruited husband Tim as her song writing partner with the intention of starting a Bluegrass/Country/Roots band but the devil had other ideas and so in 2014 ‘Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls’ was born.

The final word goes to Jo Carley herself, "We write the music that we ourselves want to hear".

See you on the Road...
