Former mime-artist and street-sweeper Louis Barabbas is a writer, performer and label director, best known for caustic love songs and energetic stage shows. He has performed all over the world, from Mexico and the USA to mainland Europe and Australia, sharing stages with such disparate acts as Motorhead, Supergrass, Sun Ra's Arkestra and The Blockheads. He is also a committee member at the Musicians' Union, columnist for Sounds Magazine, moderator for Tom Robinson's Fresh On The Net and co-founder of Manchester label Debt Records.
BBC 6 Music once described Louis' music as "excellent in every way" (but there's probably still room for improvement).
He has recently written a musical about media manipulation, familial treachery and the thirst for power. The soundtrack album is released in May and features performances by Bridie Jackson, Liz Green and Tom Hingley among others.
