The new video for "Pecatonica Mud" is out!  Go to menu-videos to watch.  Five years in the making we're really proud of how this came out.  I also recently did interviews on three consecutive days at local Madison radio station WMVO 98.7.  You can listen here:  menu-albums.   Going all the way back to the beginning in 1965 to now, we covered a lot. And be sure to check out Doug Moe's terrific article on the new CD: "Pecatonica Mud".  There are many sites to purchase the new album from but we get more money if you order directly from us (check or cash). $17 will get you the full "Pecatonica Mud" CD delivered to you with our thanks.

Darlington Video Trilogy

Apr 1 2023

I've been busy this winter with three videos, all in the style of talking blues, on my hometown Darlington.  "The Lot" tells the story of our backyard that was the neighborhood meeting place for all things related to sports.  "The Day The Fair Came To Town" tells the story of how we used that backyard to park cars during the Lafayette County Fair that was a block away from us.  And "Darlington Flood" revisits one of the worst floods in Darlington history, the flood of 1950.  I hope you enjoy them.

Three interviews over three days February 8, 9 & 10 conducted by Joe Martin (Lefty Joe) on low power station WVMO in Monona, WI. (For a deeper analysis of the 3 shows and the songs played, go to menu, then click news.) We go back all the way to the beginning with The KnightKrawlers in 1965, touch on the early bands The Bowery Boys and Clicker, and finish up with the latest Midwesterner's release Pecatonica Mud. The first song plays all three parts, and is available for download for free. The next three songs divide up into Parts 1,2 and 3.
