Album: WHAT? AND GIVE UP SHOW BUSINESS?

Artist: Asylum Street Spankers

Info:

“The magnificently indefinable Asylum Street Spankers stand as one of America’s most distinctive groups. Defiantly acoustic, fiercely independent and absurdly good, one reviewer aptly described them as ‘a roots-rock riddle, nestled in a satirical Vaudeville enigma, packaged in an old-timey radio-show puzzle and slathered with hippie-fried mystery sauce.’”

“Yellow Dog Records carries the living lore of authentic American music into the present. Featuring new interpretations of Blues, Jazz, Soul, and Americana styles by established and emerging artists, Yellow Dog Records is where innovation confronts tradition. What’s left after the collision? Inspired explorations of America’s musical roots.”

Shaggy Maggot, a fan, wrote:

“Bill Hicks meets Dan Hicks in an Appalachian music-hall. What’s not to like.
