Prohibition is a Failure - Dec. 12th CD Release Show!

 Hello everybody-

  Our brand new EP, "Prohibition is a Failure" is coming out on Sunday Dec. 12th, and we're proud as can be!  We'll be doing a CD release show that night at Southpaw here in Brooklyn.  Its gonna be a great show with a number of our favorite musicians joining us on the bill.  We recorded the album over the summer with John Cohen, a founder of The New Lost City Ramblers, one of our all time favorite bands and it was a huge honor as well as a pleasure to make a record with him.  This EP will be followed by a full length LP with more recordings from those sessions a few months down the road.  The album will be available for purchase on the internet soon enough... but come down to the show and get one hot of the press!

John Cohen Photographs

The Dust Busters, photographed by John Cohen, Fall 2010.

The Dust Busters were photographed this Fall by our good friend and very favorite photographer, John Cohen of the New Lost City Ramblers.  We've been doing a whole lot of work with John Cohen of late including recording an album with him over the Summer which came out real nice- and we're releasing an EP from those sessions real soon!  The CD release show is set for Sunday Dec. 12th at South Paw here in Brooklyn.  Gonna be fun!  Look out for more info on that coming soon...

We were very honored to be photographed by John who among his many subjects has taken such stunning photos of so many of our favorite musicians over many years.

Gone to the Country: The New Lost City Ramblers and the Folk Music Revival by Ray Allen
Saturday, November 20
Show starts at 8:30pm

"Gone to the Country: The New Lost City Ramblers and the Folk Music Revival," is a new book by Ray Allen that chronicles the life and music of the New Lost City Ramblers, a trio of city-bred musicians who helped pioneer the resurgence of southern roots music during the folk revival of the late 1950s and 1960s. Formed in 1958 by Mike Seeger, John Cohen, and Tom Paley, the Ramblers introduced the regional styles of southern ballads, blues, string bands, and bluegrass to northerners yearning for a sound and an experience not found in mainstream music. Tonight, Ray Allen will show rare and fantastic photos of the band, while telling the story of the band and it's impact on music everywhere.
