Product Notes

Anchored by washboard player Scuff Acuff, an honest to goodness member of what is apparently a very large Acuff clan, The Tune Stranglers start out Stranglyn with Get With It, an invitation to knock the manure off your boots and for lack of a better phrase: Get with it! If you feel the yodel is a thankfully dying art form, behold Yodel Blues where fiddle player Eliza Welch makes a convincing case for continuing it's dominance over all other musical forms. Showing hometown pride Track 3 Oly Stomp celebrates Olympia Washington, a profound theme that will rear it's head again on Track 7 Mud Bay Stomp. Pig Hip (Track 4) is not only my 4-year old son's favorite tune on Stranglyn, it is a long overdue hillbilly paean to vegetarianism. After an energetic and heartfelt cover of Fats Waller's Hold Tight by Boom Boom 'Sweets' Levine, the Stranglers bust out with Sallie Mae, a lament for the perils of student loans/educational debt. Mud Bay Stomp hammers home the point that Olympia Washington is the best place in the continental U.S. to reside, while their raggedy New Orleans sports a melancholy fiddle solo and three singers. Betty Ann (Track 9) is a sleeper, and rhythmic freight train highlighting the Stranglers' live experience. Track 12 takes a West Coast progressive turn with Hang Your Head in Shame, a pedal steel tongue lashing for our current leader (aka the W). The knockout progressive punch comes with I Want to be a Cowgirl's Sweetheart, sung by fiddler Eliza Welch. Two gals, a full moon, a campfire - God Bless America. Stranglyn concludes with a last nugget, a shout out to everyone's favorite carnie snack - the Corn Dog. May The Tune Stranglers be rewarded for their musical skill, their humor and intelligence, and for their fresh update of old time music.
