Chronic (Luke Escombe Musician / MC / Pimp)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

Despite technical difficulties that cut the performance by twenty minutes, a tiny venue lacking in chairs, and obnoxious drunkards yelling from the back row, Luke Escombe’s ‘Chronic’ was a thoroughly enjoyable and hilarious show. Escombe, a tall and lanky Australian, shares his views on important world issues – terrorism, the Iran/Iraq conflict, the cult of iPhone addicts – through the medium of satirical and quite catchy tunes. Luke is creative and talented; instead of getting aggravated with the aforementioned inebriates yelling out what they believed to be the next lyrics, he used them to his advantage, dedicating a little number to them about robbing a liquor store with a two-by-four. This artist is definitely one to watch.
