The King of the Cigar Box Guitar has just released his first new album in three years... and it's an unplugged jug band feast!

Acoustic cigar box guitars, washboard, washtub basses, homemade percussion and even a real jug fill up the 11 songs on Stay Primal, the latest from Shane Speal & the Snakes.

The album is a celebration of cigar box guitar and homemade music. Speal even sings about building CBG's in the song, "If It's Too Loud (I'll Go and Build Another)!" Another song, "Everybody Get a Rock" is about the infamous Razzy Dazzy Spasm Band from the 1800's, an ensemble that played cigar box guitars and homemade instruments.

"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!
