City Slang: New Luddites album and show

Posted By on Sun, Mar 31, 2013 at 9:55 PM

The self-proclaimed “noisiest acoustic band on Earth”, the Luddites, will celebrate the release of new album Twisted In on Saturday, April 13 at the Lager House.

Brooklyn francophone rockers, Les Sans Culottes, open the show.

According to a statement, “The Luddites are an 11 piece folk orchestra that redefines the image of acoustic music. The Luddites take their name from a rabble of desperate English textile workers who, in the earliest days of the Industrial Revolution, took to smashing factory machines in an effort to preserve the ideals of humanity and craftsmanship. Today's Luddites are no less rebellious, shunning electronic trappings and embracing all things wood. Equipped with an arsenal of string'd, skinned, and reedy things they play original music that mix-matches folk, rock, zydeco, calypso, klezmer, ragtime, and Bourbon Street swing. They are often silly, sometimes sobering, always very, very entertaining.”
