A heady mix of punk, ska and rock & roll that’ll keep you dancing till you fall to the floor in happy exhaustion. Guitar, Bass, Drums, Accordion, Saxophone, Euphonium and Trumpet with a heavy smattering of vocals from Fernando ‘The String’.
The Matatunes were formed in Edinburgh in 2012 when a motley crew of Iberian émigrés got together with a simple ethos: make a lot of noise and have a good time. With a very diverse spectrum of musical backgrounds, the band’s sound is an original raucous dancey ska/rock with punk energy and attitude. European gigs and festivals followed where they supported band such as Basque, Antihero, El Drogas and Spanish rock titans Def Con Dos, Bombkare and The Toasters on their UK tours. Now that The Matatunes have recorded their debut album Audio Crime and with their hit single Another Tin they have new songs, new members and can’t wait to get you up dancing! So kick the wellies off and get ready to SKA at the World Ceilidh!
