ABOUT SKELOCRATS

SKELOCRATS_LARGE-(1)

Skelocrats are a band from Dublin who have released 2 EPs, Whip Crack Away and Hot Yoga, which are available together on the exhaustive collection, The Complete Skelocrats. They make simple, brisk guitar pop music, somewhat warped by recording room insect interlopers. They are members of the Popical Island collective. Band members also play in Land Lovers, Grand Pocket Orchestra, Groom, Lie Ins, Ginnels, No Monster Club and Deputy Fuzz.

ABOUT THE COVERED SONG: 

We have encouraged the single-bands to make a cover version of a song they think deserve more attention. Skelocrats  has chosen to cover “Poupée de cire, poupée de son” by Serge Gainsbourg, originally performed by France Gall.

Skelocrats writes this about the song:

Poupée de cire, poupée de son was the winning song in the 1965 Eurovision Song Contest, sung for Luxembourg by France Gall. It’s a catchy song. The original has the galloping cowboy rhythm that we employed in Beat Your Buddies, which you can find on The Complete Skelocrats. Bronwyn had signaller a wish to take her French language singing for a walk, so it was the perfect marriage.
