"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

Okay, I love this music but I have no idea how to find other shit like it. What the FUCK would you say its genre is? It's not jazz, it's not surf, but kinda like a country/jazz/surf/folk/tex-mex/cowboy/ska

Jack, you must help me.

"Staten Island Afro-Soul," is how I've read The Budos Band described, fwoan.

If you want their full catalog, Daptone Records:


Which label also features similar music from other artists, including the increasingly well known and appreciated, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings.

Glad you liked it.
