ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Juke Baritone & The Swamp Dogs

Gypsy Punk Cabaret and Pirate Blues Mayhem...

Think about Tom Waits with a hangover at a Screamin' Jay Hawkins gig in New Orleans, playing music by Muddy Waters, Danny Elfman and Mike Patton...then you're getting close to a hint of Juke Baritone & The Swamp Dogs.

Comprising of six members and a dozen instruments, the band teeters on the brink of destruction while pounding out their own brand of old world, swampy, cabaret industrial punk blues and wowing audiences at major events and venues with their highly entertaining and outrageous live performances that have the tendency to turn ordinary people into raving fans and make others walk out in disgust.

Blatant songs of boozing, women, drugs and politics, combined with some of the best musicians in Australia, an eccentric, energetic and engaging front man and a real message within the music, makes for a highly entertaining live music experience.

There’s an electric stage show with lots of costumes, drinking, posturing, growling, dancing on tables, drinking, a bit more dancing, falling over and then a little bit more drinking.

It's drunken cabaret gypsy punk mayhem!

“..it might just make the perfect soundtrack to your next night of unbridled debauchery... It's not that they're necessarily drinking songs, or that there's anything inherently evil in the music; the songs just feel like they should be surrounded by alcohol and semi-controlled raucousness, and they bring to mind a dark cellar bar that maybe you haven't even been to yet.. It's fun, but it's the kind of fun that might get you in trouble. The best kind of trouble.”
- CD Baby (USA)

“Who is this crazy person really? I get the impression Juke could be one of those drifter on-the-run-from-the-law forty-passport-seaman types that Tom Waits likes to sing about…”
- Rave Magazine Brisbane (AU)

“Juke Baritone sounds like everything I want out of The Dresden Dolls but never seem to get.”
-Pat Rondon (UK)

“I haven't seen a band like that in twenty years. They broke every rule I asked them not to but it was so worth it...”
Promoter (AU)

“With hard driving Australian Rock based influences and a dirty sound reminiscent of a Louisiana gravel road, lyrics that are naughty and sometimes crude they’ll probably never get airplay on American radio but hey, it’s the Blues. Add to that a real message and you’ll see why I like it.”
- The Blogging Poet

From one carnie to another, amazing awesome fun hilarious sexy CD, best circus CD ive ever bought/heard. Cant believe this is home grown talent. 'Bill Hicks' a personal favourite, every song is an inspiration generating seductive hip swinging and finger clicking. Kudos guys, fucking kudos.

New Orleans style blues from Australia? If only it were that simple. With a swampy sound that refuses to get bogged down, this six piece turns horn-heavy blues on its head, slyly clamoring through 9 tracks of barely restrained cabaret-esque compositions that might just make the perfect soundtrack to your next night of unbridled debauchery. It's not that they're necessarily drinking songs, or that there's anything inherently evil in the music; the songs just feel like they should be surrounded by alcohol and semi-controlled raucousness, and they bring to mind a dark cellar bar that maybe you haven't even been to yet. With gravelly vocals and driving horns, you could compare it to Tom Waits, but I think their own assessment of likening it to "Screaming" Jay Hawkins may be a little closer to the mark. It's that feeling of something brewing, the intangible element of impending insanity that envelopes the sound. The tempos hit like a hard heartbeat, knocking on your noggin while the horns almost force you to sway with the beat. It's fun, but it's the kind of fun that might get you in trouble. The best kind of trouble.

great stuff
Get this album. It makes you happy.

I can't begin to disseminate this album. Juke Baritone's self-titled debut is one of the most fluid things I've heard recently. At times the lyrics sound like a stream-of-consciousness rant ("Bill Hicks"), others sound like a deranged love song ("Ya Said Ya Loved Me"), but it's always the same gravelly, addicting voice. The band is called The Swamp Dogs, and that couldn't be more apt. The music is restless, a mix of jazz, rock, and punk fused by blues. It's terrific, really.

großartig!!
great music with rough vocalist!! but i wish the same would be recorded in good quality! it´s a pitty that you can´t hear everything they can do!
