Nick Turner and Phil Bailey of The Rogues wanted to do something new and different. They drafted in Anand Neerava on percussion to complete a trio they called The Conspiracy because of the amount of time they put into conspiring to get the songs to be rhythmically resplendent and tunefully terrific. The songs are all originals and gleefully skip across genres - an eclectic mix of electro acoustic surf guitar, ska, reggae, folky, occasional bossa nova and straight ahead blues to make you dance, laugh and possibly cry (hopefully in the right places). They have been described as “Nick Cave cheers up a bit and goes surfing”. They have an album in final production which features some of Freo’s best as guest muso, and are targetting February for an album release.
