These two na-er-do-wells from a lost valley in the Siskiyou mountains of… wait. Na-er-do-well haint really right. I mean, they na-er-really do bad nuther. I guess they’re just na’er dos.

Anyway, that’s all beside the matter. What’s the fore of the matter is that they make a kind of uncouth, lo-fi version of music called “Siskiyou Stomp.” They make that music with instruments like their voice, and some strings.

There’s a dog what runs the show by the name Walt. The other two go by Stompin’ Jim Hambone and Smilin’ Jim McGee.

They’re rough round the edges, and rough round the middle, and rough round the edges of the middle. And they drink. LOTS.
