ESK'S most famous sister act is returning to Ipswich for a musical performance quite unlike any other.

The Kransky Sisters will bring a range of instruments ranging from keyboards and tubas to graters and toilet brushes when they visit Ipswich Civic Centre later this month.

This time, however, the sisters will play alongside ARIA-nominated band Topology to perform a program of television themed songs.

"I'd call it a mix of kitchen and classical," Mourne Kransky said.

"We originally were going to play tunes from the wireless, but Topology came to rehearse at our house and they left behind their television by mistake, they brought it up to watch the grand finals.

"Our mother had always banned television you see and told us it was dangerous.

"We ended up watching it and playing along to all the television tunes."

Mourne said the sisters now regularly watched a number of programs that people could pick out during the performance.

"There is all sorts of the television. A judge who tells people to be quiet, a vicar who lives in a village and there's a lot of Young and Reckless as well," she said.

"We've been quite taken with the television ads too so it's certainly a lot of fun.

"Topology have helped create a very interesting arrangement. The best way to describe it is we put the music in a blender and see what comes out.

"We also have a quick fire in the middle of the show, where the audience have to guess the songs."

The talented musician said she and her sisters couldn't wait to perform on the Civic Centre stage once again.

"We're quite close to Ipswich. We often pop there when we need a packet of Epsom salts," she said.

"We always like to meet people so we're looking forward to that."

The Kransky Sisters and Topology will present Tunes from the Tube at Ipswich Civic Centre on next Tuesday, October 20 from 7pm.

Tickets cost $35 for adults and $27 per person for groups of four or more and are selling quickly.

Book in early by visiting or by phoning Ipswich Civic Centre on 3810 6100.
