Arguably Humboldt's finest band returned to the KHUM studio today for yet another brazen display of musical prowess and ungroomed facial hair.

They perform Friday with Water Tower Bucket Boys, Zebulon Bowles, Bon Swing, Random Canyon Growlers, Lindsey Battle, Striped Pig Stringband, Trillium and more at the 3rd Annual String Thing.

In this episode, recorded 9/30/11, they play all-new material and throw in a They Might Be Giants cover.

Bird Jowaisas – Mandolin and Lithuanian Party Bugle

Ryan Roberts – Guitar

John Ludington – Bass

Ian Davidson – Electric Banjo and Nose flute

Tofu Schwartz – Drums, Percussion, and first chair kazoo.
