Do you remember the Squirrel Nut Zippers?

How would you characterize Squirrel Nut Zippers? They were quite popular in the 90’s when practically everything that wasn’t typical was called “alternative music”… Although I think their official music genre is “swing revival”. Anyway, it’s the only one of those bands that I still listen to today with much pleasure. And I felt like listening to these two crazy swingy jazzy tunes this morning.

So enjoy the classic Put a lid on it (just recently noticed how funny the lyrics are) and the strange – and somewhat creepy – funny cartoonish Ghost of Steven Foster
