Squonk Opera is one of America's most innovative multimedia musical theater troupes. This is the soundtrack to their stunning 2004 show "Rodeo Smackdown." This is a sometimes sexy, sometimes frightening, always surreal sonic interpretation of the Wild West.
“the best album they’ve done yet… you can tell from the subtle loving smirk of the disc’s genre stabs (the Morricone sax swirls and rodeo accordion licks) that the group did its homework. And it has paid off.”
“Sit back, let the rich Squonk music swirl over you and free associate on the imaginative images, which play off of pop culture and Joseph Campbell-like archetypes.”
