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."


More info:
This CD was donated by Hazmat Modine and Barbés Records, so all proceeds go to help RootsWorld's 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."

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
