“Formidable Vegetable Sound System are spearheading a new and exciting form of musical activism and becoming one of the most important voices in a global cultural movement that began right herein Australia” – Harry Angus (The Cat Empire)
By busting out live shows based around Permaculture and other ecological principles, Formidable Vegetable Sound System is paving the way for a new kind of musical activism based around simple, fun solutions to some of the toughest challenges of our time and are rapidly becoming a favourite on the Australian and international festival circuit with packed dance floors and workshops alike.
Realising that music is one of the best tools for bringing about cultural change, globetrotting permaculture troubadour and ukulele-strumming frontman of Formidable Vegetable Sound System, Charlie Mgee committed himself to composing a repertoire of swingin’ tunes addressing the principles of permaculture in various musical styles ranging from ‘energy-descent electroswing’ and ‘climate-change dubstep’ to ‘peak-oil polka’ and ‘post-apocalypso’, which make for an eccentrically entertaining and unforgettable dancefloor experience when pumped through the ‘rad-ish beet-box’.
