Out now: The Left Arm Of Buddha 7"ep
posted February 12th, 2014The Left Arm of Buddha is what you call an "exotic" orchestra. On stage, you can find the spirit of the Tiki culture, burlesque dancing and music inspirated by Rock&Roll, Jazz and Space Age Pop Music born in USA during the 50’s. This is Exotica! And Monkey's Affair is their debut release.
The Left Arm of Buddha propose to take you on a journey through Tropical spots around the world, to popularize the Exotica style which include exotic percussion (marimba, vibraphone, bongos, congas, gongs, drums, ...), a horn section (flute, saxophones, ...), piano / organ, bass & guitar.
It includes original arrangements of popular songs supposed to represent life in Polynesia, Africa, Asia or in the Amazon according to the compositions. All in a joyful, sensual, dynamic, hypnotic show, to surprise or intrigue a wide audience.
The band consists of eight experienced musicians from the Moon Invaders/Caroloregians/Adolphe Sex-stable, a sound & video engineer, a light engineer, and several dancing girls. A sensual and exotic experience ... an original and rare offer on the worldwide scene!
If you want to see them live go to Brusseles on Friday, February 22. Exotica Night at La Tentation! Crazy cocktails, luxuriant music, majestic dancing girls and a lot a surprises! We don't have to tell you how fantastic it will be... Afterparty with Los Hermanos Brothers

posted January 24th, 2014...until we have to increase prices again in our Stagoleeshop. We lowered them considerably in early December, kept them low in January, but they need to go up a little at the end of January. So grab the chance to order some Stag-O-Lee and Spoonful product while prices are lower than a pack of cigarettes. To make things even easier for you, there is a free 30-track CD with every order - no matter how small or big.
