Performing as The Claudettes, the piano-drums duo of Johnny Iguana and Michael Caskey have created their own fanatical fusion of blues and soul-jazz – like Ray Charles on a punk kick. Imagine an amped-up piano hybrid of Charles and Mose Allison, joined by a jolly madman drummer and conducted in gonzo fashion by Raymond Scott. Now they’ll be taking their epic sets of spasmodic instrumentals on the road, in conjunction with the October 1 release of “Infernal Piano Plot…HATCHED!” on Yellow Dog Records. File under post-burlesque? Neo-vaudeville? Cosmic cartoon music? You’ve never seen instrumental music done this way. Read more

The Milk Carton Kids

The Milk Carton Kids

On November 10th, fresh on the heels of their 3rd appearance on A Prairie Home Companion The Milk Carton Kids have been invited to tape an episode of the renowned television show Austin City Limits.
Flat-picking harmony duo The Milk Carton Kids have emerged in the last three years as a powerful voice defining the continuing folk tradition. A refreshing alternative to the foot-stomping grandeur of the so-called “folk revival”, an understated virtuosity defines The Milk Carton Kids to the delight of traditionalists and newcomers to the folk movement alike. Indeed, Garrison Keillor has called them “absolute geniuses in close-harmony”, while cultural purveyors like T Bone Burnett and Billy Bragg continue to refer the importance of The Milk Carton Kids among a group of new folk bands expanding and contradicting the rich tradition that comes before them.  Read more
