Meet Luke Escombe and the Corporation, musician, MC, pimp. Hes a freak, in the best sense of the word. From sweaty tin shacks in rural Queensland to the stages of the Melbourne Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe, Luke has been hitting the road hard in 2011. His one-man musical comedy show picked up 5-star reviews and drew comparisons with Nick Cave and Flight of the Conchords, while his rocking 4-piece band got dance floors heaving up and down the East Coast. Their first single - Drop tha Bomb shot to number 4 in the AIRIT national radio charts, and the resulting music video led to a front cover shot in MX and a free plane ride to the Edinburgh Fringe courtesy of Arts NSW. Taking an old world roots vibe and giving it a sharp, comedic twist, Luke Escombe and the Corporation mix funky, literate pop and flippant hip hop into an infectious new style called: Flip Flop. Turn on, tune in and flip out as they head to Cockatoo Island this November to launch their next single.
