Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band: Wangaratta Wahine

(2013/Aztec) 18 tracks (6 Bonus Tracks) - Digipack

For a sweet trip down memory lane, when jug bands could sing about "dreaming of a reefer five foot long" ('If You'se a Viper') look no further than this superb reissue of Wangaratta Wahine by Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band. Originally issued on vinyl back in 1974, Wangaratta Wahine was a big seller, hitting #4 on the Australian charts and making the band a major attraction.

At a time when other bands were obsessed with the blues and prog-rock, Captain Matchbox took their inspiration from Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton and the Memphis Jug Band. The prime cut remains the fondly remembered title track: witty, playful and utterly unforgettable, there's nothing else like it in the whole history of Aussie rock music - a song about getting stoned in a roadhouse restaurant along the Hume Highway. Sheer genius!

Wangaratta Wahine retains a quirky, appealing freshness to this day, full of yodelling vocals, gypsy violin, honky tonk piano, rattling percussion, bluesy harmonica, kazoo solos and a large dash of ocker humour - all up just a barrelful of kooky fun. Features original Michael Leunig cover art, 6 bonus tracks, all fully remastered by Aztec's Gil Matthews and housed in typically lush Aztec packaging.
