Munly & The Lupercalians in autumn in KC Grad


The members of “Denver Sound”, who have been repeatedly proclaimed the best live band in America, are the inimitable Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, whose country-punk-gospel-gothic “service” the Belgrade audience had the honor of attending 3 times already.

History has hidden various terrible things behind Amen and other cries of gentleness and mercy. Unraveling them and bringing them to light is a specialty Munly J. Munly-ja. He is best known as the frontman of Slim Cessna’s Auto Club which is not in the name of the band. With yours The Lupercalians is coming on Wednesday, October 19 u Cultural center GRAD in Belgrade.

You don’t know about Munly J. Munly whether he looks like death personified or a tortured saint. Who in his dance combines the highland mountain dance of his ancient ancestors with the stage jerks of Ian Curtis. Such a “dance” permeates his entire creativity. Munly is a musician and writer committed to the creation of worlds like Lupericalia – a land without borders and soil where the Puritanism of the first settlers, the simplicity of the “good country people” and the blood sacrifices and bacchanalia of ancient Rome intersect. Twelve years since the debut album “Petr & The Wulf,” bring us the first of the trilogy of albums about Lupercalia – “Kinnery of Lupercalia; Undelivered Legion”. It revives the hypnotic charge of Munly’s earlier works, combined with rhythms that will move both your feet and the depths of your dark, sinful human soul.

It’s hard to find an equivalent for them, but – try to imagine that, instead of gray Manchester, Joy Division gathered in the depths of the Appalachians, without electricity, equipped to interpret the world with ancestral myths, rituals and animal (and maybe not only animal?) bones and skins, supported by mysterious beings whose nature is unclear to us, and the purity of their intentions even less. Skilfully and frantically strumming his banjo, handling his voice from bass and deep chants to haunting treble, Munly with his whole creative being seems to be possessed by all these mesmerizingly scary stories in a moment, while creating a completely unique sound with the band – a mixture of primitive American folk, complex tribal rhythms and dark wave-post punk charge.

Although you’ll hardly recognize them on stage behind their pagan masks, most of the Lupercalians are current and former members of Slim Cessna’s Auto Club. Therefore, it can be said that Munly And The Lupericalians are a more primal and darker iteration of the famous Gothic Country Haunted Preachers Auto Club.
To paraphrase another great poet among musicians – “do you want it even darker?” Then come to KC Grad on Wednesday, October 19.

Tickets at a presale price of 1000 dinars @ Pub Brod and Čumić Chillton. From October 1, 1300. On the day of the concert, 1500 dinars.
