New Mick Bassett album available

Posted By on Tue, Oct 25, 2011 at 10:09 AM

Mick Bassett has had a new record available for about a month, and while he appears on Here Lies The Lion That Lied In Your Bed without his backing band The Marthas, it does mark his first full-length record. The songs are stripped-down compared with the band's typical trombone-laden fare, but feature a dynamic mix from precious solo-acoustic to gags; there's the lullabye-esque telling of the story of Christopher Columbus, a Leadbelly cover, and a download-only nugget called "The War Is Over!" that defies all explanation (keywords: George W. Bush. Chipmunk voices. Ragtime). Pay what you want, $15 gets you a vinyl LP sometime down the line.
