All the stars have aligned for a blistering Saturday afternoon of bona fide salvation boogie, raging redemption rock, hell bound hollering, gutbucket girations and godless gospel at the Snake Oil Preachers’ Canberra Debut.
Snake Oil Preachers formed in the crucible of the hardest winter on record. They are a salve for your tender hearts, a balm to your worried minds and stimulation for your weary ears. Drawing on the rich tradition of music made by sinners, for sinners, about sinners, their mission is simple, yet profound – punch out a couple of sets of shimmering, soulful, tough (yet sensitive) tunes that will get you toe-tapping, dancing and thanking the universe for whatever senses you have left. Their practical philosophy for living comes from Saint Nancy; “One night of praying and six nights of fun”.
