72-minute concept album created by Christopher de Groot, featuring members of exotica band SLIDE NIGHT.
Sailing Ships & Tarot Cards is a melting pot of 1960s exotica, Delia Derbyshire inspired sci-fi music, classic Bernard Herrmann and a pinch of John Zorn – Tropical noir-nightmare!
This cinematic offering from Christopher de Groot blends the rich and fascinating world of mid-century exotica with flavours of the Australian bush and a twist of David Lynch. “Sailing Ships and Tarot Cards” is an engaging musical road-trip that whisks you through a landscape of changing moods - leaving you breathless and eager to hear it again.
