Marseille Figs

Marseille Figs

Marseille Figs is an experimental pop band from London. With roots in the improvised music and performance art communities, they have been a fixture of the London underground music scene since their formation in 1999, with audiences centred mainly in London and Berlin. Their music is an aggregate of honky tonk, free jazz, American folk music, psychedelic music, pop and punk, which incorporates fast, high energy country-based dance music, melodic ballads and expansive structured improvisations. Their membership includes or has included members of Cinematic Orchestra, the Eddie Prévost Trio, and the Pogues. Their line-up consists of Tom Chant (saxophones, bass clarinet, keyboards), songwriter J. Maizlish Mole (guitars, ukeleles and vocals), and Dorian McFarland (accordions, mouth harps, flugelhorn, trombone and vocals). Between October 1999 and June 2003, they were joined by Darryl Hunt (bass guitar, electric guitar, vocals and percussion). They have self-released two limited edition CDs: Resonance FM 9 September 2002 and Boum Boum Constant (New Demos &c. 2005). Their first official release, The Dirty Canon, was produced by Jem Finer, DM Bob and Brian O'Shaughness, and released on their label Figs of London in 2007, through Cargo Records.
