Still Nutty After All These Years: Squirrel Nut Zippers

When Dr. Sick got the call to join Squirrel Nut Zippers his first reaction was: "Are they still a band?" Oh are they ever, thanks to the wonderful and wacky ear of original member Jimbo Mathus. He pulled together a revival cast who have recorded a new batch of songs for Beasts of Burgundy, the first new Squirrel Nut Zippers album in 18 years. Dr. Sick will demonstrate how he plays the singing saw, which is exactly like the saw in your shed. Singer Cella Blue will wail. Oh yeah, and all 9 of them will deliver a boogie-inducting, raucous performance.
