When we started White Mischief, there was only one rule about the kinds of bands we’d book. It doesn’t matter what genre, what style of music they make…as long as they are completely different, brilliant live and a world away from the dour indie fodder that can be found at the usual toilet venues. If there’s an act that embodies the spirit of what we’re looking for in terms of risque theatricality and undeniable uniqueness it’s Ebony Bones. You may have heard Ebony Bones on Radio 1 as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in The World… now get ready to catch her and her band live in the flesh as headliners of the second stage at White Mischief. Read on for videos, photos and laudatory press quotes galore…
Ebony Bones is a cultural chameleon, everything she sees is an inspiration, she spins ideas out of everything and nothing. Everything in the air, everything beautiful and real goes into what make Ebony Bones so special.
Ebony Bones is wholly unique – a banshee, a redeemer, she sees everything and she has the devil’s tail in her hands. She is the real deal, no messing around, all ready to go.
Starting from a blank page, Ebony put up tracks on a blank myspace, and let the songs do the work. With the electricity and shock and awe these tracks conjured, it got the web in a spin, and the word spread like wild fire. Basement Jaxx took notice, Timbaland jumped out of his seat, Jarvis Cocker was blown away to meet her, Richard X couldn’t wait to get in the studio with her and Future Cut dropped everything.
Ebony Bones is globe-trotting, jaw-dropping proposition. Pro-pop, the real deal, she is more alive and exciting than anything else around out now. She is the future, and will cut through 2008 leaving a rainbow of excitement everywhere she goes.
There will never be another Ebony Bones.
