The official blurb:
Once upon a time in Camden Town, six ragamuffins gave up turning chemicals into gold and set about playing loud, timeless rock and roll.
Undeterred by rags and shackles the five boys and one girl called themselves Medicine Show and hammered out medicine music; a raw form of Little Richard-style rhythm and blues, doo-wop, Irish folk and punk.
Like a travelling circus spitting life into towns across the land, Medicine Show’s thunderous sound is gloriously rudimentary and crude, played by medicine men and women without a single music lesson between them.
Their rockabilly stomp leaves a trail of well dressed destruction at all times, making the boys fight and the girls cry; bringing with them a cloak and dagger danger to stir up rock and roll.
Like their beloved Robert Johnson or some lost James Dean movie set in modern London, Medicine Show's Dylanesque prose combines with a reckless spirit that could soundtrack the lives of any young rockabilly rebel; dancing, fighting, falling in love.
