is the Edinburgh-based duo of Malcy Duff and Ali Robertson… Traversing the worlds of British improvisation, post-fluxus performance art, absurdist comic book fiction and Scottish luddite humour, they create a world that exists “through” music, where the mundane is illuminated and notions of “talent” and “expertise” are de-mystified.
We have a punchline at the end of each set which equals one joke every three weeks: “I’m not laughing at him. I’m laughing with him. No, i’m not laughing at him. I’m laughing with him.”
Combined comprehensive educations of Fife and Edinburgh failed to curb luddite tendencies or discourage low forms of wit: Ali Robertson got remedial as Giant Tank head-honker. Malcy Duff draw.
Meanwhile: A lack of understanding proved that if you leave something broken long enough it’ll start working again and Usurper got born.
Minusculist practical pranks and barely there puns for sound keep us chortling like never since John Candy jammed with his dashboard.”
