Editorial Reviews

Review

"Imposing presence and offbeat, down-and-dirty blues hooks define Iko's sound.Voodoo band [Iko-Iko] is on a roll..." -- Billboard Magazine

BEST SONGWRITER

Graham Drout

Iko-Iko frontman Graham Drout's blues-flavored rock songs can transport you to a strange and mystical world, or at least to a hidden corner of the tricounty area. Take the ambling and pastoral "Miller's Woods," for instance: "In Miller's woods my spirits dwell/Like a silver dollar/Down a wishing well/In Miller's woods, let my spirits soar/'Cause they know that I've been there before." Then there's the slow and haunting "Walk with the Zombie," on which he sings, "Cat daddy's a loup garou/One of those who do the Voodoo/He walks like a wolf/When the moon's as red as rust/He gets cross-eyed and crazy/Like the rest of us/When he walks with the zombie/Through the streets of the city/He'll find no pity/On the streets of the city." Drout's songs are drenched in dues-paying experience and bubble up as if out of Miami's tropical melting pot: "I was high on revelations/Drinking strychnine from a jar/I had a python 'round my shoulder/Longer than a Cadillac car." -- Miami New Times/Best of '98

Careful here the name makes you think zydeco, but its not that at all. A slight touch of NAwlins sound is almost undetectable in this collection of moody pieces accentuated by Graham Wood Drouts smoky vocals.

This one grows on you. -- Blues Access

Product Description

Protected By Voodoo captures some of the spirit of Iko-Iko with great performances and special guests (Nicole Yarling from Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefers; Ilker Gostaminza; The All-You-Can-Eat Horns; and others) as well as radio songs like "Celebration" and the wildly popular MP3, "Bag Me, Tag Me (Take Me Away) which has seen thousands of downloads. The breakout CD for this great band.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hot sound with great songs! November 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first heard this band on Mp3 and immediately ordered the CD. I liked it so much I ordered more for friends! The sound is exciting, and the songs are original; they ROCK! I especially like Celebration and Bag Me, Tag Me. Can't wait to see them live and hear the new CD "Shine" with Pet de Kat!

4.0 out of 5 stars Swamp Boogie! July 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Iko-Iko (Iko rhymes with psycho!) is a band from Florida consisting of Graham Wood Drout on lead, acostic guitar and vocals, Michael Mennell on vocals and bass, Stewart Jean on drums, percussion and vocals, Larry Williams on electric and slide guitar and ronald Dziubla on tenor and baritone sax, guitar, organ, and vocals. Approximately 5 other musicians rotate in and out of various tracks adding special effects with trumpets and "voodoo swamp" guitar where needed.
There are 11 original tracks on this disc which hit everything from country to southern swamp/rock with a little New Orleans jazz and blues influences throughout.
There are some interesting cuts on this CD that deserve some attention. Try the somewhat slow blues number "Walk with the zombie" complete with barking dogs in the distant background and the rather comical numbers "Jalapeno be thy name" and "3 fingered fellers named shorty" If you are in the mood for something new, why not try some blues laced swamp boogie from Iko-Iko. You may like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original; music with feeling!!!! November 1, 1999
By dczigns
Format:Audio CD
I had never heard of this band until I visited Ft. Lauderdalefor a week. Saw them live and liked them so much I went back a second night for the whole set!! They really believe in their music and it shows. One of the most original bands I have ever heard, everything from funny to soulful. You will not be disappointed. The CD's are excellent and you will wnat to crank it. I have not taken it off my CD player in weeks. I also have to mention that all the band members are very down to earth and they know how to show their appreciation to the listeners!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the sax man! Come see me! November 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I saw Iko Iko live in Nashville and it was the most fun my friends and I have ever had. This band is so hot! The sax player can stay in town anytime he wants. I got the CD right away (thanks) from Amazon and it's so great! I listen to it all the time and love to hear it in my jeep. Might have to buy a second copy. Love these guys! Love, Sarah
