Mojo Juju, the Novocastrian dark cabaret/swamp rock crooner and former founding member of The Snake Oil Merchants, has set out on her own with this sinister first single from her debut solo album.
Mojo Juju is one of those acts that you’ll find extremely difficult to pin into a genre. You’re guaranteed one thing though, the self-titled album from this unique songstress is quite the raunchy seduction for your ears.
Drawing inspiration from the Jazz age, early blues and Latin America ‘Pachuco’ culture of the 1930’s and 40’s, Mojo Juju produces mesmerising and memorable live performances. The November tour will feature tracks from her debut and self-titled album to be released this Friday the 14th September. Mojo Juju’s dark, dirty and seductive presence and music of her live show will corrupt your soul.

When Laurie Anderson sang ‘Paradise is exactly like where you are right now, only much, much better’ she could have been describing the Mullum Music Festival - four days of international and national profile artists mixing with locals and visitors in the beautiful and vibrant little town of Mullumbimby on the NSW north coast.
Hollywood if you could? This New Year’s Eve you can.

What better way to enjoy the debauched fun that is the silly season than with the music and style of The Vanguard.
