Product Description

This record is about using and enjoying drugs, particularly marijuana and beer. If this bothers you please go away.

Amazon.com

Spanker Madness is the Asylum Street Spankers' salute to the devil weed--or, if you prefer, the holy herb. Founding members Christina Marrs and Wammo are joined by a rotating cast of inmates that includes former full-time Spanker Guy Forsyth and producer David Leroy Biller on lead guitars. Marrs initiates a Betty Boop-style duet with the veddy British Martin Blacker on "Wake and Bake" and strums a ukulele on "Pakalolo Baby." Wammo mounts up with the Ghost Riders in the Sky for "Winning the War on Drugs" and does the Tom Waits thing on "Amsterdam." Clarinetist Stanley Smith takes a casually Dylanesque vocal on "Blade of Grass" before Forsyth revisits the Delta on the bluesy "Take the Heat." The Spankers' loose communal spirit entertainingly recalls seminal hippie folk groups such as the Jim Kweskin Jug Band and the Holy Modal Rounders. But the most telling observation belongs to Wammo, who confesses that after decades of devoted experimentation, his favorite altered state is ... beer. --Rick Mitchell

I love this album! Asylum Street Spankers are very talented musicians that can't easily be pigeonholed into one musical genre. It is a great blend of folk, jazz, country, rockabilly and more, but the album has a cohesive sound throughout. This is the type of music that is most popular at drunken parties, but it's great to listen to anytime (except in front of your grandmother, your priest, or the DEA.) It skewers the war on drugs, and presents some positive viewpoints on drug use. If you have a libertarian attitude and want some quality music, check this album out.

Their picking and singing is as good as it can get--and the song writing's pretty darn good, too. Of course, this album will not be liked by anybody who belongs to the Friends of the Drug Czar Society, but old preverts like myself will find it a delight. In fact, I'm sending out two copies as birthday presents to friends today. The bottom line is, if you like great acoustic picking and singing and are amenable to cannibis tunes, this CD's for you.

What I've always loved about the Spankers is that they make you think while you're having a ball! And this album is a new peak in terms of thoughtful hilarity. Between the witty playing and funny lines are lots of intelligent social commentary about drugs and attitudes toward them. After all the oh-so serious singer-songwriters of today are forgotten, people will still be listening to this smart, funny music alongside Dylan and Abbey Road.

Just like their Dirty Ditties and Nasty Novelties, the whole album follows a theme. In this case drugs. Fun songs goes great after watching Reefer Madness, The Musical.
