Live Review: Graveyard Train + Bearded Gypsy Band - The Governor Hindmarsh, Adelaide (10.05.12)

Graveyard Train

I first saw Graveyard Train on Spicks and Specks, performing cover songs in their own unique style. I was enthralled then by their swampy, gritty country sound. With their double bass, harmonica, carnivalesque banjo, steal guitar, a coffin-shaped washboard and a hammer and chain, they are one of the most exciting bands to come out of Melbourne in recent times. You have to admire a band who chooses to keep time with a hammer and chain, rather than the typical tambourine.
