Had rock and roll been born in 1930's urban Europe, and not 1930's rural America, it would have been like this; part Kurt Weill, part Jacques Brel, part Ernst Kirchner, part klezma. Looking like a band formed in the mind of George Grosz, The Cesarians capture the urban zeitgeist via the junk shop instruments of old Europe . In their hands, a clarinet, tenor horn, trombone, piano, and drums beaten in waltz time, make raw and raucous rock and roll.

Over this beautiful chaos Charlie Finke preaches his own intense message. "I wanna be a woman" he screams on his knees, the grease in his Weimar haircut forming a quiff.

Cesarians 1, the debut album from The Cesarians, recorded in Abbey Road’s infamous Studio 2 and produced by Craig Leon (producer of debuts for Blondie, The Ramones and Suicide) is released on 6th July 2009
