The Good Ship
Let's get one thing straight: The Good Ship is a very bad ship.
Drawing inspiration from fellow denizens of the deep like Nick Cave, The Decemberists and The Pogues, their pelagic folk rock charts some dark and dangerous waters, and a more mangy, cross-bred collection of influences, from gypsy to bush-band via cabaret, country and rock you’ll not hear. In the world of the Good Ship it's the good stuff that sinks to the bottom...
Live, The Good Ship are a seething maelstrom of decadent musicality, with up to nine members on stage at any one time and a whole heap of archaic instrumentation from mandola, lagerphone, fiddle and trumpet to accordion. This sense of joy and anarchy hasn’t been lost on audiences and after only a short time, the crew have gathered a loyal following throughout Australia.
