Songwriter Luke Escombe spent years trying to be a polite, family-friendly acoustic folk artiste. The charade nearly killed him. Chronic Illness was the result.
A blend of funky literate pop and flippant hip-hop (or 'flip flop') Chronic Illness is a show full of sharp, catchy and sublimely funny songs about the profane inner life of the modern urban male.
Featuring an incomparable mix of guitar heroics, drum loops, dance moves and low budget keyboard jingles, this is one fully sick entertainment experience.
Be warned: your inner emo may never recover.
"Funniest record I've ever played - anything by Luke Escombe" DJ Nick La Rosa in 3D World Magazine
""On the fast track to musical comedy's big league""
""Brilliant" 5 Stars"
"Combine his musical panache with some dirty-minded humour and sharp pop culture satire and it makes for one hell of an act...Be warned: these are songs you’ll be singing to yourself for days afterwards."
