Prepare to immerse yourself in the phantasmagorical, cheap punk fairground ride of (The Mighty) Bossmags. Oddball purveyors of wildly high-energy, carnivalesque, theatrical, comedic and heavily themed madcap punk rock experimentations.
First created in Warrington as a nefarious punk circus experiment, they escaped the funfair laboratory & emerged first during a live performance in July 2016. Further aiming to defile the constrictions of punk and ska music with their own tongue-in-cheek black blend of horror & intrigue, they’ve sought the blood of influences ranging right across the spectrum, anywhere between metal, swing, dub & disco, whilst still maintaining the cirque du punk roots.
You’re guaranteed to be kept guessing what’s coming next and you may just groove your hips, lift your knees & flail your neck around like you need an exorcism, which you may in fact actually need. With a repertoire consisting of the supernatural, surreal, sinful & politically disdainful, Bossmags have driven their curious live show up and down, here and there across several countries, and will most likely be there in your trousers before you can say Johnny the Claw.
So, allow them to grab your ears and tear you headfirst into their repertoire of death-defying, curious and poetic portrayals of the evils to be found in old houses, forests, at sea, caves in the glens, fast food chains, government offices, drugs, and so on, presented in a cabaret-style show with various masks, props, characters and strange goings on. If you dare.
