Since their emergence in early 2016, THIRSTY EYES have come to be recognised as major pillars in the falling masonry of Vienna Modern Raunch. Damning contemporary prepossessions for the self-important, humorless and boring, the band stands for rough and unpolished Rawk-N-Roll: Preserved in alcohol and stripped to the skeleton, yet boisterous and charismatic, sometimes close to sheer unconsciousness. Accordingly these kids know their business, being well prepared to play various popular novelty tunes like the Ding–dang–a–dong, the Higgle–dy–piggle–dy as well as the Yukkum–yukkum (my personal favorite). Just believe me, these THIRSTY EYES are on a mission and blessed with the rare ability to convert your average Polka audience into batshit lunatics. – Text by Al Bird Dirt
