Mad Tea Party-- a one-man-band-ukulele duo-- in Asheville last weekend at Bele Chere. Their smiling, energetic, catchy fuzz-country-blues songs were an early-afternoon surprise in an otherwise bland afternoon of music (granted, we only stayed a few hours, it was 100fuckingdegrees). We did catch Southern Culture on the Skids Friday night who were great, as always. Their new songs sounded good to me, looking forward to their new record.
So Mad Tea Party comes highly recommended, especially live. This 7" naturally caught my attention.
available as a easy-as-pie download with bonus song. Maybe I'm just a sucker for anything Halloween-ish, but it's my favorite of what I've heard so far.
And here's a music video by my friend Skizz!
And here's a link to the fairer half's blog about her awesome skeleton-Uke tattoo.
