Brickwork Lizards are Oxford purveyors of the finest Turkabilly hip hop mashup, since 2005.
But what is Turkabilly - is it Turkish Hillbilly music? Well, it’s that and more - it’s our own upbeat blend of Arabic, gypsy, balkan, klezmer, jazz, blues and hip hop, straight outta East Oxford.
Our music is fun but thought-provoking, pure but simple. Have a listen to some of our tunes to find out what we mean.
It reaches out to people of all kinds, all ages, all creeds. We’re doing our own little bit to bridge the divide between eastern and western music. We are, ‘All that we are’:
- Tarik Beshir; oud and vocals
- Bruce Douglas; bass and percussion
- Louisa Lyne; cello
- Andrew Mack; drums, percussion and vocals
- Tom O’Hawk; vocals and raps
- Steve Preston; trumpet and keyboards
- Ian Wilde; bass, banjo, guitar and vocals
- Spencer Williams; guitar and vocals
- with Giles Lewin*; violin
*when we’re lucky!
