Unfortunately, due to recent flood damage to the venue, Bingo Fury’s show at Servant Jazz Quarters cannot go ahead on 6th October and will now take place on 30th November. Existing tickets remain valid and ticket holders will be contacted directly.
Bingo Fury conjures a glitzy – altogether seedy – Broadway sheen. Although very much a solo songwriter, Bingo’s compositional process relies on contributions from his entire band – bassist Megan Jenkins, and drummer Henry Terrett have been playing together since their teens. In one of their various incarnations, they recruited local avant-jazz legend, cornet player Harry ‘Iceman’ Furniss, with guitarist and percussionist Rafi Cohen later completing the line-up.
Influenced by classic songwriters as much as pioneers of alternative experimentation, the songs can often land like a jazz standard that got lost multiple times on its journey to the present day. Some pit stops are obvious: the haunting balladry of Nina Simone and Leonard Cohen, and the arresting no-wave of James Chance and The Lounge Lizards.
Bingo Fury’s debut single ‘Big Rain’ is out now on Ra Ra Rok Records.
