Sgt Dunbar’s Hobo Banned may be a collective form Albany, NY but their sound is more akin to the strange bouillabaisse that’s been brewing in the New Orleans Bywater neighborhood of late: 2 parts continental gypsy, 1 part Balkan folk, a pinch of Swordfishtrombones, with a healthy dash of On Avery Island.
Over the past couple of months I’ve been spinning “Everything Is, Pt. III”, on the radio show, with repeated inquiries as to its origin. Here are the deets: it’s off the group’s most recent release, the EP A March Through Charles Mingus’ Garbage Pile. Alright, carry on.
