Hazmat Modine Extra Deluxe Supreme
This CD was donated by Hazmat Modine and Barbés Records, so all proceeds go to help the magazine and radio program. We thank them for the generous support.
The band writes:
"Hazmat Modine draws from the rich soil of American music of the 20's and 30's through to the 50's and early 60's, blending elements of early Blues, Hokum Jugband, Swing, Klezmer, New Orleans R & B, and Jamaican Rocksteady. The band is fronted by two harmonicas which use call and response, harmony, melody, and syncopated interweaving rhythms. The band includes tuba, guitar, and percussion, claviola and Hawaiian steel guitar. The band's sound reflects musical influences ranging from Avant-garde Jazz to Rockabilly and Western Swing to Middle-Eastern, African, and Hawaiian musical styles."
Marty Lipp writes in RootsWorld:
"Traditional and yet unprecedented, Hazmat Modine blows its harmonica and brass in the face of today's music-industrial complex. A multi-generational, diverse collective of artists from across genres, they come together to celebrate their uncategorizable music."
You can read the full review and interview with bandleader Wade Schuman in RootsWorld.
Cliff Furnald writes:
"Hazmat Modine has been the RootsWorld office house band ever since Bahamut came swimming in here in 2006 on the wings of a Tuvan. This is real American roots music for the global century."
