Shane Speal & the Snakes
"I felt like the Snake Oil Band (aka The Snakes) got too electrified, so I told the band to only listen to Led Zeppelin III before we hit the studio," says Shane Speal. The end result is a full-throttle and mostly acoustic jug band album that grabs you by the throat from the first track. Drunken singalongs, murder ballads, touching songs about insanity...it's all here.
Cigar box guitars, cigar box mandolins, diddley bow, jug, electric washtub bass, box drums, harmonica, banjos... yeah, it's all the cool stuff!
