This week Eli talks with The Peach Colored Jug Smugglers. They’re a great new string band from California who came East this summer and are currently working their way through the South and back across the country using a combination of buses, hitching rides and hopping on freight trains. They inhabit a place in California called the Chad Shack, a structure which they have build on an open piece of land. They pay no rent! They all come from a punk music background but have started playing old-time music in the last year or two.
Roots ‘n’ Ruckus Collective @ The Village Ma – MacDougal between Bleecker and W. 3rd St. Ever Wednesday, 9:30pm-1am. A great show every week! Come on down!
Squat.net – [squat!net] is an international internet magazine with main focus on squatted houses, car sites and other free spaces.
Crew Change Guide – These guides offer instructions and practical information on how to catch freight trains in your area. You need to know somebody to get one, but could possibly be worthwhile to ask at your local Anarchist bookstore. Although this information is apparently rather closely guarded. Don’t try hopping freight trains unless you go with someone experienced!
The Peach-Colored Jug Smugglers, residents/non-residents of the Chad Shack, consists of:
Country “Lane” Bollweevil – Banjo, Guitar, Vocals
Sean “Mohoot” Mohawtie – Fiddle, Guitar, Banjo, Washboard, Vocals
Michael “Musby” Bandito – Spoons, Gutbucker’t, Hollerin’
Chad “Smitty” Smith – Hollerin’, Words of Wisdom, Nachos
