The Bing Turkby Ensemble

Bio

Bing Turkby was born in 1973 in Turakina. Bing started out recording at home by himself, but has since been joined by the soaring Tyrone T. Blowhard on sax, the effervescent Slapskins McBOOOm on drums, and the mighty MacDeth on bass.

"Bing Turkby represents Turakina by putting out way too many albums in his "hayseed surrealist style"
- NZ Musician magazine.

Band Members:
Bing Turkby (guitar, trombone, accordian)
Tyrone T. Blowhard (saxophone)
Slapskins McBOOOm (drums)
MacDeth (bass)

Bing Turkby is so flash
Posted: Thu Jun 5, 2008 5:11 pm
In another world first for Palmerston North, the entire Bing Turkby back catalogue is now available on a flash drive. The ‘Turkby drive’, as it has been dubbed, includes 11 CDs’ worth of songs, 3 music videos, 4 humourous “musical instruction” videos, and a photo of Bing’s cat in a box.

“I got the idea from someone’s blog on the internet”, said Bing. “It was such a good idea that if I didn’t think of it, someone else would have to think of it for me, and they did.”

Bing’s record label, TurkbyTone Rekkids, is currently posting a new musical instruction video every month on YouTube and also at www.myspace.com/turkby to whet the public’s appetite for all things Bing.

Other notable releases in unusual formats include Ringo Starr’s last album (available as a wristband flash drive), and the cassette-plus-chewing gum-and-comic releases from fellow Palmerston North band Rungled several years ago.
