About: Droopy Gypsy
This group of psychotic delinquents were drawn together for their love of Gypsy-Punk. After hearing 'Squeeze Mc'Apples' beating a hobo kit to within an inch of it's life 'Scrumpty Dumpty' tinkering on an Accordion he had acquired 3 days earlier in very suspicious circumstances and 'Ham' stealing telegraph wire to feed his bass habit.. 'Chief' realized that he'd found the rhythm section. 'HorribleMick' deployed interest at this point and after a few threatening phone calls and their overall well-being there was a 4th member.! 'Chief' began to feel mad with power, travelling from destination to destination trying to find that "new high".... not after long he found himself in Ukraine, Odessa to be specific.. making bootleg drugs on a zebra crossing, which is were he met his trusty violinist 'The Ukrainian Crack-Fox'...Drawing from their individual and shared influences The Railway Sleepers combine elements of Gypsy, Ska, Punk, Blues, Reggae & Rock to create a sound like no other band currently on the music scene fueling their credibility for "Droopy Gypsy Driven Knee Deep In Reggae Spew Blues."These weirdos have been also working on an album as well as hoeing it, date for the release is yet to be decided.Until then you can keep up to date via (this) or many other sites which have been Droopified. The Droopy Gypsies are coming to a town near you.
