The Legendary Rum Jungle
  • Adelaide Fringe

In 1978, Adelaide band Rum Jungle, led by charismatic, wild singer/guitarist Phil Colson, travelled to Bangkok on a mysterious journey. The trip destroyed the band. 36 years later the band re-grouped at Fringe 2015 in front of 400 fans to recreate the sound that kept the Lord Melbourne Hotel jumping for an era and shocked sedate Thai audiences. In 2018 Rum Jungle have been invited to perform once again at the German Club for the Adelaide Fringe, and give us a taste of their signature sound " blues, R&B, funk and debauchery. The band lay it on thick with nostalgia and reunite to play the music they love, 40 years after that mysterious Thailand gig... who knows where the night will lead?
