Lucas Eubel (bass)

Sad, funny, intense, bizarre, fascinating… welcome to the quirky, twisted sweep of Melingo's wry bohemian universe – a fabulous, boozy, theatrical milieu where Tolstoy, Kafka, Piaf, Brecht, Waits and Cohen might find solace and unsettled lodging. His deep grouchy voice and his vividly sparse music well up from the world of tango in its early days. Knives and romance, hallucinations, spiralling twists of the brain and undiscovered romanticism… his insolent, anecdotal songs resemble daydreams, or thrillers, with swinging bursts, shady noises and the grating, almost Dada-like echo of the craziness of a world stumbling on its last legs. A true tango original!

'the man who makes Tango seriously cool!' The Independent
