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
