Slinky Vagabond is a concept band that originally formed in 2007 and became an integral part of the New York club scene and performed at celebrations for Joey Ramone’s Birthday Bash alongside the New York Dolls, Fashion Week’s Gen Art and Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp and Marc Bolan’s 30th Anniversary Show alongside Patti Smith, Tom Morello, Joan Jett and Ronnie Spector.
They release the new CD album ‘King Boy Vandals’ on December 6 th 2021 that can be ordered at Maracash Record Store
The band’s ethos was built with guest collaborations at its core and this has remained the same since 2007. The band’s original lineup featured Keanan Duffty - the current driving force behind the band - Earl Slick (David Bowie, John Lennon), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols, Rich Kids), Clem Burke (Blondie, The Ramones) and Pete Shelley (Buzzcocks) on backing vocals. They were structured like hip hop bands that construct songs on features, tracks and featured a veritable slew of collaborations.
‘King Boy Vandals’ carries on that tradition. Longtime friend and collaborator of Keanan Duffty, Fabio Fabbri - Italian guitarist, producer and songwriter- produced the record, co-wrote the songs and played guitar.
There are guest appearances from Midge Ure (Ultravox/Visage/Live Aid co-founder), Dave Formula (Magazine/Visage), Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses/Psychedelic Furs), David Torn (David Bowie/David Sylvian), Tony Bowers (Durutti Column/Simply Red) and Martin Turner (Wishbone Ash)
