ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Sing Out!
Winter 2005
Volume 48, #4
The Juggernauts

As We Like It

Those unfamiliar with this popular band may be puzzled: the album title evokes Shakespeare, the cover features primitive masks, and the band slogan is “changing the face of roots music.” The combination seems even odder when you note that the band combines swing music with instrumentation including jug, harmonica and washboard. But the puzzlement is only for those who haven’t seen these great audience-pleasers.
The Juggernauts are a long-time, close-harmony string band with tastes ranging from old hokey numbers like “Nobody Here But Us Chickens” to Alan Sherman’s “You Gotta Have Skin.”
Among the band’s distinctive qualities is the smoothness with which they play zany Hoosier Hotshots type songs like “Wipe Out,” featuring neat stop-time rhythmic breaks. The album title? It refers to their participation in a 2003 Actor’s Theatre of Louisville production of As You Like It. A sample of their contribution is the enjoyable, albeit unlikely version of “Under the Greenwood Tree,” from Act 4, Scene 5, which includes a jug break. The album includes a poke at rock anthems with “Gimme Three Steps,” introduced by an awful rock beginning, retreating into a country parody including jaw harp. The album wraps up with an abbreviated version of the Looney Tunes theme.
As We Like It is a fine album for devotees of swing and whimsy; some pieces are good dance numbers, many are silly, and still others bring to mind enjoyable nights at musical theatre. Great fun listening! â€" FL/SL

What a wonderful gift
This is one of the absolutely coolest albums I have ever heard. Uplifting, fun, and joyous, I am so glad this was my introduction to this gifted group...I intend to get more of their title.

An outstanding musical Jorney
This is a exiting and surprising cd. Different from other jug music releases. Even different from other Juggernaut Jug albums. Well, every one who heard there other stuff, will recognise them imedialy. It contains all there trade marks from the crazt comic to the great vocal harmonies. But still, theres something different about "As We Like It". The folk, blues and trad. jazz ingredients are mixed with other influences, to create a fresh and magic musical blend. Theres a little input of 40's jump/jive/swing-directions, a tiny touch of coll jazz. Yea, that's even a twist of more modern jazzstyles. Not enough to scare anybody away. Just what it takes to make it surprising and refreshing. The country elements are used in a slightly different way than normal. Almost every track on the album points in a new direction. After the quite traditional opening with "San Francisco Bay", "Route 66" swings the ass off. A feww tracks later Beatles' "Obladi-Oblada" is handled in a great manner, with a brilliant triangle-intro. The barber shop oriented version of "Diga Diga Doo" is among the best recordings Juggernaut Jug have ever made. "Wipe Out" enters surf-rock in jug music. "Underneath The Greenwood Three" goes through a stripe of changes. Opens with a swingin' beat and beautifull vocal harmonies. Then jumps over to Doors' "Riders In The Storm" as a guitar solo only acompanied by jug, then changes in to a waltz that leads to the end. An outstanding track! "Ruckus Juice" takes you to the mountains of hillbilly and bluegrass. "You Gotta Have Skin" is superswingin' with elements of "I Got You Under my Skin". "Christopher Columbus" is a masterpiece in the straight jug style.
Theres a lot of good music here, an many kinds of music. This album takes you on a jouney through different traditions, styles and time periods. But all held together by the distinctive sound of Juggernaut Jug. Not just a collection of songs, but an album in its thrue sense!

Tony Dunn

Another superb offering from The Juggernauts
This latest offering from The Juggernauts is a superb contribution to the output of current crop of contemporary jug bands. Their reworking popular songs into the jug band idiom cannot be faulted and their version of "Ruckus Juice and Chitlin'" remains true to the jug band style. The writer was particularly captivated by "Fishing Blues", "Diga Diga Do" and "Gimme Three Steps".

Buy it, buy it now, buy it, you'll like it.
I keep waiting for a new album to come out from the JJB and here's their latest. They never disappoint, always entertain and make me want to burn my guitar after I listen to them. Great Jug!

The Old Jug (they'll know who)

A Great Opportunity Ruined!
If they ever wanted to put out a "Best of the JJB", they've blown it with this album! This one IS the best! It has the full range of musical genres, all done with the inimitable style that only the JJB can muster. It's a "must have".
