a jaunty little jalopy plea to get away from it all... employing the mandolin, the grabber bass, drums, and some especially shaky vocals. done on the porta-1 one rainy new orleans out for the yellow car!

4 or five guys looking for liquor, love and laughs. . . then writing songs about it. Each brought together in new orleans by hook and by crook, to play a moody, muddy, almost moist music. They have a rhythm that smolders like a slow landfill fire, with words askew and music muggy. Playing high and low, using whatever is left over from the night before, they tear into their sounds, (which are somewhat found), with an emotional ferocity few have mastered! Come hear for yourself, that witty and charming band about town...
Why this name?
it just seems to fit... but we go by many monikers, the metry wrecks is another. the rest is too upsetting to relate...
Do you play live?
We don't play well with others. Intent on mayhem and chaos, we have been banished to the studio for the duration...
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It lets us reach out and change the world, one tune at a time!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
don't really think they would want to have anything to do with us.
