Album Notes
Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters prove beyond doubt that their 1920s-30s swing has a rip, rock and zip that's 21st century but still true to the grain of the Kansas City jazz cradle from which they've sprung.

Mr Poppleton's character warblings, extensive vocal range and ability to slip into German on the flip of his cartoon eyelids, aided by his high swangin' combo, are a must see.

They're the Kings of Frantica Antica Jassssssssss, covering all sorts of wallop and wowie.

"Absolutely flooring. We must say Greg Poppleton's music always hits the spot - so authentic sounding!" Women's Vintage Radio Hour, (USA)

“Listening to the 1929 recording by the Mound City Blue Blowers of I Ain't Got Nobody and My Gal Sal shows the Broadcasters have captured the basic sound. Not surprising when you consider the group includes musicians of the calibre of Paul Furniss (reeds) Al Davey (trumpet and trombone) and Lawrie Thompson (drums and washboard) who show how well they have mastered the style. Grahame Conlon (tenor banjo) makes a mockery of those many banjo jokes with his rollicking solo on The Road To Gundagai. As for the leader, he has captured that decade's vocal style to perfection especially on Falling in Love Again sung in both English and German. As enjoyable as they are to listen to The Bakelite Broadcasters must be even better live”
Kevin Jones, 102.5FM Fine Music jazz critic

“Greg has the natural knack of sounding exactly like a 1920s singer,”
John Buchanan, Jazz Festival and Concert Producer

"Greg sang all the top songs of the 1920s…There were many happy faces in the audience,”
Warren Fahey, record producer and music historian

"Poppleton captures the essence of the swing years with uncanny accuracy,"
John Gilbert (USA)

“Greg Poppleton has captured the essence of the jazz singers of that era [1920s],”
Gerald H Beulah Jr, (USA)

“Makes me want to slip on my two-tone oxfords, tie up my bow tie, and meet my honey on the dance floor,”
David Byrne (USA)

“Awesome. Totally fun,”
Jesse Miner, Manu Smith, ‘Hey Mr Jesse’ podcast (USA)

“Greg nails the 20s vocal stylings,”
Bill Lawson, Jazz On The Terrace
