Lost Fingers – Making 80s Tunes Bearable

Canadian band Lost Fingers  (Byron Mikaloff, Christian Roberge & Alex Morisette) are reworking cheesy 80s tunes gypsy jazz style. Many an artist like George Michael should be jealous, the Lost Finger’s versions are often much better than the originals. Careless Whisper is a good example. The guys may need body guards when they come to Australia and the Adelaide Cabaret Festival as fanatical ACDC fans may not like the ‘enhancement’ of the sacred tunes Thunderstruck and You Shook Me All Night Long – again way better than the original dare I say it in case a bogan fatwah is put out.  Nikki Marcel was disappointed to find out that a shower came between Byron Mikaloff and his pending immigration to Australia.
