|The arachnophonic sounds of Mr Bontempi|
Musician, part-time snake oil salesman and illustrator, Marcel is a busy guy. When not gigging with the band or playing in his own right, he paints and has exhibited throughout Germany as well as further afield, his style (although I hate pigeonholing) would be firmly retro, reminiscent of 40's-50's American animation and cartoonesque (publicity ?) images , often with recurring themes such as apes, musical instruments and the like.

|The latest slab of wax (as of 19.07.17)|
With no LP/CD releases to date, rumour has it that there will be a compilation out this year collecting cuts from the EP's and singles (All the releases came out as editions of 500) as well as some alternate versions and maybe some unreleased material...here's hoping, that way you won't have to pay silly money on Ebay in order to get these babies.
If you like your tunes authentic and original sounding, real R'n'R, Rockabilly (with a hint of hillbilly and swing for good measure) ? Then you should own these.........you have no excuse.
New single due out on Migraine records ( http://www.migraine-records.com/) in the coming months and it's about 'Wolves' this time !
New Dr Bontempi's Snake Oil Co single out on Squoodge Records (http://www.squoodge.de/prestashop/) in the coming 6-8 weeks and an LP to follow on the same label in Autumn
|Hillbilly hoedown from the good Dr and Co.|
What are you waiting for ?
