Funk and Madness

Who: Method
Where: Northern Star Hotel
When: Wednesday August 19, 1998

ACOUSTIC world funk music madness is a good definition for the sound of Blue Mountains duo METHOD. Performing tonight at the Northern Star Hotel, Method is FLOYD VINCENT & THE CHILDBRIDES bass player BILL JACOBI (left) and his 'co-conspirator', drummer FRANK CORBY. Before becoming a Childbride, Jacobi was a member of the WARUMPI BAND. Boston-born Corby has performed with a variety of Australian bands including GANGgajang. 'We don't get to do this very often, so it kind of makes each gig a bit special for us,' Jacobi said.

The music is built around the skeletal combination of open-tuned guitar and drums, is rhythm driven, with a wide variety of influences including Celtic, blues and world music. TE
