about

The magnificently indefinable Asylum Street Spankers stand as one of America’s most distinctive live groups. With an all-acoustic mix of genres hailed by Rolling Stone as “inspired, lunatic brilliance,” what other band can boast of appearances on both NPR’s All Things Considered and The Bob & Tom Show?

Mommy Says No!, the group’s sixth studio album, features an inspired approach to childhood that one pundit likened to “Dan Hicks meets Dan Zanes.” In the best tradition of classic Warner Bros. cartoons, the album is full of the sort of inside joke that will appeal to the Spankers' decidedly adult fans, even while the disc’s sounds and themes catch the ears of children.

Though family-friendly, Mommy Says No! pulls no punches in musical sophistication or songwriting. Addressing childhood from both kids’ and adult perspectives, the songs nod to Dr. Seuss, Maurice Sendak, and Shel Silverstein in their clear-eyed view of the joys and anxieties of being a kid. Gorgeously produced, it’s a rich listening experience for kids of all ages.

about

Asylum Street Spankers Austin, Texas

The magnificently indefinable Asylum Street Spankers stand as one of America's most distinctive groups. Defiantly acoustic, fiercely independent and absurdly good, one reviewer aptly described them as "a roots-rock riddle, nestled in a satirical Vaudeville enigma, packaged in an old-timey radio-show puzzle and slathered with hippie-fried mystery sauce." ... more
