SQUIRREL NUT ZIPPERS Hot

This refreshing introduction to the retro swing movement, should provide plenty of entertainment for the whole family, even as it makes us all feel a little under dressed. Throwing out decades of antiseptic elegance, the six zippers bend over backwards to make you feel their sweat. The single 'Hell' is not only very funny, but catchy in the manner of the Violent Femmes classic 'Blister in the Sun'. Check out the lyrics, 'In the afterlife, you will be headed for the serious strife, now you make the scene all day, but tommorrow will be hell to pay!' The call and response, and jazzy interludes will not rival those of roaring 20's, but there is something in the way of punk spirit thrown between the string arrangements and trombones for good measure. It seems as if because the music we listen to today is louder, bassier, more distorted and contorted, the energy contained in it is always a reflection of the hands, and hearts at the controls. And some folks, like the Squirrel Nut Zippers just swing.
