The Tango Saloon ‘Shadows & Fog’ (Romero/Newmarket)
Review in The Sydney Morning Herald, 18th May 2012 by John Shand
The brilliant Deadwood aside, westerns have been sadly out of favour on our TV screens, but not on our sound systems. The latest round-up from The Tango Saloon blurs genres even further than before, with a distinct film-noir element now darkening the tumbleweeds and showdowns. Eeriness and sophisticated humour become as entangled as heatwaves and sand in a lonely desert. Julian Curwin can carve a third notch in his guitar for another victory over the evil forces of musical predictability. His scowling gang includes Marcello Maio (keyboards), Mark Harris (bass), Danny Heifetz (drums) and Jess Ciampa (percussion). They launch it tonight at the Factory Theatre with Romero stablemates Darth Vegas.
The Tango Saloon will play at the official launch of new label Romero Records (romerorecords.com.au), May 18th at the Factory Theatre in Marrickville. Also performing are Darth Vegas, launching their new album ‘Brainwashing For Dirty Minds’, plus The Rescue Ships and Jay Katz.

The Tango Saloon will launch ‘Shadows & Fog’ at the Factory Floor (105 Victoria Rd Marrickville) on April 14, supported by Miss Little and Brian Campeau. More details here.
The Tango Saloon’s long-awaited third album ‘Shadows & Fog’ is finally being released.
The band has always blended tango and spaghetti western sounds with other elements such as film scores, rock, gypsy, jazz and electronics. On ‘Shadows & Fog’, the tango really takes a back seat to these other elements. Following in the dark footsteps of ‘Transylvania’, the new album is something of a film noir score, conjuring images of figures lurking in the shadows, a midnight rendez-vous, a heist gone bad, betrayals and double-crosses…
The album features 10 of Australia’s finest instrumentalists, plus special guest vocalist Elana Stone on first single ‘Femme Fatale’.
Released by new label Romero Records, and launched in April at The Factory in Marrickville.
Exciting news! The Tango Saloon will play before Mike Patton’s Mondo Cane in The Domain on January 14. For the Sydney Festival’s ‘Summer Sounds In The Domain’ and also including Brous from Melbourne. The Tango Saloon are on at 6.15pm, don’t miss it!
