Cigars for the Man
Today, music is made up of manufactured, mass-produced ‘cigarettes’. Connoisseurs that are looking for something with more body need to carefully search for quality and, in the process, find strong blends and rich sounds that challenge what they have come to know in the past.
Cigars For The Man make no attempt to mass produce ‘cigarettes’. Just like a fine cigar, Newcastle band Cigars for the Man is a combination of quality ingredients that have been blended in a special way to create a lasting experience. Drawing influence from many styles of music, Cigars For The Man hand-roll these ‘ingredients’ in a way that provides a unique listening experience for the music enthusiast. Just as a cigar will test the palette with its full bodied texture, Cigars For The Man will test the ears with a complex musical scope that provides reward long after the initial flavour has gone.
Each member of Cigars For The Man bring a wealth of experience into the blend having individually performed alongside heavyweights like The Rollins Band, Sprung Monkey and Karnivool, on massive festival stages like the Big Day Out and toured extensively in their various earlier incarnations like The Porkers, Henry’s Anger and local Newcastle favourites Bunson & Equinibrium.
The result of this diversity of personalities, tastes and experience could well have ended in a mishmash of styles but in the debut album The Adventures of Repus Polund, Cigars For The Man strike a match and set fire to music formulae, creating something truly inspired and uniquely original.
