Philip Moriarty

Philip Moriarty

Philip MoriartyPhilip Moriarty (who wishes it pointed out that he has recently released his own album, the excellent "L'eprit de l'escalier") teams up with Hayes a treat.

Moriarty is a multi-instrumentalist, who can finesse an arrangement with a tasty horn line from his clarinet or rip out a howling solo on blues harp.

From his first foray as a punk clarinettist in Canberra band The Slammers, through a twenty year career co-fronting the Gadflys, to current incarnation as 'The Great Muldavio' in, notionally eastern european, Kabaret Noir outfit Mikelangelo And The Black Sea Gentlemen, Moriarty's songwriting has progressed in startling ways, both in terms of observational clarity and breadth of ambition, delivering satisfyingly on the promise of the Gadflys' rootsy ecclecticism.
