The Billy Shinbone Show is the deviant fuzz-folk & disco-blues manglings of multi-instrumentalist Billy Shinbone, (AKA Jesse Budd), -funneling his twin passions of old country & 60s psychedelia through the rusty plumbing of a DIY musical approach & his love of a twisty lyric.
What started as a side project from his band Flipron has grown to include an album, singles, tours across Germany, festivals & plenty of national & international radio play. The songs are characterised by often spookily surreal lyrics over a tangly open-tuned picking style -playing "guitar like a banjo & banjo like a guitar".
