Mourne, Eve & Dawn

The Kransky Sisters! Imagine a trio of spinster Munster siblings formed a girl group, picked up a tuba, a musical saw, an old casio keyboard and sundry pots & lids from the kitchen, and proceeded to do unique versions of everything from AC-DC to The Sugababes.



I've written about the Kransky Sisters before, but now they have their own home on the web. Yay! Unfortunately The Man has cut off my YouTube access here at The Big Christian Charity otherwise I'd link direct, but if you go here and scroll down to the bottom of the page there are heaps of links to their clips on YouTube.

Watch. Laugh. Be afraid a tiny bit.

XOXO

You're welcome Thombeau! I've loved them for years. Years! They are semi-regulars on a stand-up comedy/burlesque type show we have on Saturday nights called "The Sideshow". It's always a highlight when they're on.

THANK YOU! I love them! Dawn is a wonderful tuba player, and their comic timing is impeccable! I'll certainly be watching for more of them.

The Other Andrew said...

You're welcome Paul! Glad you like them. :)

I don't think I can watch. That one on the left looks like a vengeance demon from Buffy.

ooh, what a strange coincidence - I went back to your first post about the Kranksys, and followed the link to In Siberia Tonight. did you notice the message down the bottom of the page?

The lucky winners of our Iron Chef competition are Alexander de Vos from ACT and Michael Koda from QLD. Congratulations to you both and enjoy the feast!

(for the rest of the world out there, a bunch of us know Alex de Vos)

back to the Weird Sisters. I would love to see them live, even though they freak me out enough just on the telly! ;-)

Michael took the words out of my mouth.

Mommy, I'm scared.

mrpeenee said...

wow

That's all I can say, what else is there?

Christopher said...

oh...my...damn...the one on the left has my $hit freaked out!

You so freaky Mr Andy!

Don't be hating on Eve. I love Eve! (left in the photo) She's so, well, hanging on by a thread, you know?

I am hopefully going to see a taping of the Sideshow soon, pray it's a week that the Kranskys are on!

Speedy - hey, if you have to live in Canberra you might as well win something, right? :)

MrPeenee, I'm not sure what else there is on YouTube about the Kransky Sisters, I'll see what I can find.

These gals are wonderfully bizarre and have the talent and comic talents to back it up beyond surface appeal. Like some roadkill I didn't want to look...but then became intrigued and drawn.

"SWEET DREAMS" rendition is killer. Thanks, Andrew, for this tip. I will spread Kransky Sisters in the workplace tomorrow!

The Other Andrew said...

You're welcome MG! They recently did a fab version of "Pop Music" by M. My favourites are always numbers that include Eve playing the musical saw!

WHAT THE?

Where's Arva? I LOVED Arva... she was like the... well, whichever Marx Brother never spoke. *sulk*

But I kinda love Mourne too... :)

The Other Andrew said...

Arva disappeared to play with a military marching band quite some time ago (ie: left the group) and their half-sister Dawn (same-mother - different father) joined the trio.

IRV said...

LMAO! They are the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. Thanxxx
