The Perch Creek Family Jug band has anthropologists baffled. Why did they turn out the way they are? Was it because they all drank and bathed in the muddy waters of Perch Creek from birth? Was it because they were forced to sing for each meal, or simply because their old man was nothing short of a lunatic? Either way, circumstances conspired to create a band of siblings with an incredibly unique and diverse sound that seems to find it's way through the cracks between a vast array of genres. Like the creek itself, the Perch Creek Family Jug band is at times raging and relentless and at others placid and haunting. The band specialise in chunky five-part vocal harmonies over instrumentation as diverse as the trombone, flailing banjo, washboard, double bass, overdriven blues harp, musical saw, tap dancing and a whole lot of other stuff including, of course, the jug. I guess there was something in the water...
