The Return of THE MABEL RANKIN BEAT QUARTET
by Elvis Shackleton - 10:11 on 03 October 2011
Some rare recordings of legendary Warsaw rock/folk/alternative indie band THE MABEL RANKIN BEAT QUARTET have now been made available online.
Arguments rage to this day whether the one-time recording session undertaken by Warsaw's premier boy band was an epoch-defining sylvan moment of rock genius or "just something they did that day". Whatever the reason for the serendipitous trip into a small Polish recording studio, what can be vouchsafed is that some four years after the event a few rogue tracks have emerged and have been placed on iTunes, leading with the single SONG TO THE DEPARTED.
