From The Clothesline review of the Elder Hall concert at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, 28 Feb 2015.
“What a feast for the eyes and ears! Four choral groups performed before us in the beautiful acoustics of Elder Hall….The sassiness of the women is then counterpointed by the arrival of the Spooky Men Of The West as they saunter slowly on to the stage in their dark outfits, various hats and beards.; this bunch of blokes revel in their masculinity. Though not a Men’s group, they make sure we know they are men, that they are there and we notice them – ‘Yes’ – we see, hear and smell you! Ahhhmen. They love to sing about concrete, practice mysterious handshakes and are masters at ‘mastodontotry’ and ‘manhommery’. The lyrics are ironic (Don’t stand between a man and his tool), and accompanied by some very well executed comic theatre. Mostly originals, they do the occasional cover (Teddy Bears Picnic) but of course have to have a Spooky Men of The West twist!”
