“Stories of ship-wrecks and shark-bites, blurry-eyed Hawaiian islands, post-apocalyptic hoe-downs and horse-races.. it’s all there, like a Brothers Grimm collection written in a foreign language, with some of the pages stuck together.” – River Rat Records

 

Victor Menace is the instrumental brainchild of alternative composer and musician Ruth Theodore (Guardian ****/ MOJO****). Forming the band back in 2007, the sheer pace and infectious danceability, was an instant hit on the festival circuit and within a few years Victor Menace, fronted by Theodore on Violin and Alejandro Toledo (The Magic Tombolinos) on sax, was headlining the world music stages at Bestival, Hackney WickED, and Glastonbury’s Shangri-La stage.

Soon after the release of their self titled debut record, the band sadly split as key members moved overseas and Theodore went on to release a further three acclaimed solo records. But at 3am on New Years Eve 2016, she declared war once more and reformed the band, with the original bassist Mike Limmer (La Chula), Lucien Windrich (eVoid) on acoustic, Haruna Komatsu (No Cars) on Clarinet and Sax, Luke Upperton (Ska-prest) on lead electric, and Arturs Reirs (Eugene “Hideaway” Bridges / Steve Nimmo Trio) on drums.

Remembered for their infamously energetic live shows the band were instantly asked back to Bestival 2016 and are now on the rampage!
