Spankers Go Electric?
April 2, 2004
The Austin, TX-based Asylum Street Spankers may be even more out of control on their next concert tour. Like the Chicago Cubs and night lights, after years of avoiding the demon electricity, the Spankers will now perform with the aid of amplification. In a letter from band leaders Christina Marrs and Wammo, a need to serve audiences in increasingly larger halls that the Spankers now is cited as the main reason for the change. The Spankers take the bones of old-time, honky-tonk music - with instrumentation that includes ukulele and saw - and add a perspective that is fresh and funny (and often naughty) with songs like Beer, Wake and Bake, Trippin' Over You and the new Pussy Cat Song.
