Listen

Time Will Tell (2007)

A raw and dark Blues and Roots album - the steady tread from wilderness to kitchen range, with an occasional pause to check the stars.

Shake My Bones (2008)

The Old Time Tennessee Punk and Salvation Travelling Band braids Memphis Blues, English Folkpunk, and Rockabilly Spirituality into music you can dance with your deaf grandmother to.

Lies and Tales and Sticks and Stones (2009)

Inspired by old roots and rockabilly, blues, ska, folk and some of the more 'ornery' country recordings that abound in the backwoods. Featuring guitar, banjo, mandolin, kazoo, telecaster and Jim Bouchard's great Dobro slide, it's 11 songs and tales.

This Aint The Road (2010)

Recorded at the kitchen table with a guitar. mandolin and a fiddle (but no bow), and with guest vocals from Shaka who couldn't sleep through the noise.

The Cats Moustache (2011)

A lot of my favourite music was made because someone carted a tape recorder around and recorded local musicians in a hotel room or somebody's parlour somewhere. These songs were written and created because i love that old stuff more than television.

BIOGRAPHY

Gumbo was born in New Orleans on July 4th 1900 and died in 1964 in Memphis after hearing The Beatles for the first time. He re-incarnated a few days later in an obscure region of North West Europe, and he's been trying to make sense of those few days ever since.
