The Bootleg Trio deliver gnarly old barrel house tunes, street smart wit & a lingering impression of a Hamburg rough house Cabaret. Quoting Woody Guthrie, Tom Waits, Marlene Dietrich, David Bowie, 3 Mustaphas 3, Jacques Brel, Agnes Bernelle, Alex Harvey, Queen & Velvet Underground as fonts of scant reverence. You may observe that there are sometimes more than three of them, the ‘heavy trio’ soubriquet helpfully sidesteps this awkward numerical issue. Usually found loitering in Bohemian back-bars, High Society events, street festivals or Shanghai cocktail establishments.
