Lashing tango, rockabilly, metal and gypsy feels together with hard hitting guitar riffs, double kick blast beats and massive horn arrangements, The Barons of Tang serve up their self described ‘Gypsy Death-core’. The catchy tunes and punk ethos all tie together to mean one thing, dancing is inevitable!
It was the winter of 2007 and what had started as a “joke” between a handful of down and out Melbourne musos, quickly spiralled out of control into the musical juggernaut known as The Barons of Tang! Initially rehearsing in a well-known Melbourne squat, The Barons cut their teeth with performances for local underground theatre and circus troupes. With a taste for travel and chaos, the Barons of Tang embarked on 2 years of merciless touring, leaving a trail of battered and bruised dance floors in their wake.
