ABOUT THE EPISODE
Ty and Sideshow Alley's south east Asian correspondent Mat 'Dode' Dodos, saw these guys play and knew they'd be perfect for a sideshow. Manly men, deep harmonies, and the toughest instrument in the world (you'll know it when you see it).
They were rehearsing for their album launch in the backwoods of brunswick. We met them after practice and headed around the corner. Our largest band to date, with the most cameras and more challengingly, the most microphones and audio recorders. Umm why did we pick a location so close to a train line again? It's getting dark. Crap. But we gotta wait till the 5:02 Epping comes past. Those members of the sideshow crew rocking f4 lenses are struggling with exposure. Let's roll damnit. Well fix it in post. Gulp... YeeeHaaa. That was great.
ABOUT GRAVEYARD TRAIN
Graveyard Train ripped chains and hammers from hell to forge Horror Country. They are the pioneers of a new genre that will make you cry and curse and scream. Ghost stories, murder ballads and tales of redemption are crooned through melodies plucked directly from the afterlife. Haunted love, haunted souls, even haunted clothes are typical subjects covered by the songs of the Graveyard Train.
