ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Subcontinentals are John Sieger (guitars & vocals), Mike Sieger (bass & vocals), Kelli Gonzalez (keyboards & vocals) and John Carr (drums). They have played together three years and were together in a previous band that played cajun and zydeco music, a real oddity for the upper midwest! John has had songs covered by Dwight Yoakam, Flaco Jimenez, Robbie Fulks, Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads), The Bodeans and scads of other discerning roots rockers and americana artists. The bands mission is simple: Number one, Have some fun, and number two: Have some more fun. We'll let you guess what number three is. They play dance music of all genres and wrote everything on this disc. This does not mean that they are allergic to good covers though, since they do everything from "My Boy Lollipop" to "Mambo Italiano." The main singers are John, who has a nasally soulful delivery and Kelli, whose smoky alto conjures up visions of Dusty, circa 1968. Mike Sieger sings in Spanglish. This disc is their first and truly captures an evening in Milwaukee when the beer is flowing and the dancers are wearing out the floor... it's almost like being there!
