i was driving back from work listening to Paul Jones on Radio 2 and Hazmat Modine were being featured. Had to wait in the garage til the end of the interview to hear who was playing. Down loaded it next day from Amazon and not stopped listening to it since.
The blues mixes with jazz with eastern european influence must be unique,and two harmonica playing. would love to see them live but seem to spend most of their time in Europe.
have a listen, I dont often do reviews but when you find something good i like the world to know.

Brace yourselves. This album is a swaggering, gutbucketting, hip swinging, blast. Nothing strange about this change from major to minor - check out the staggering harmonica tour de force in which Wade Shulman leaps from Memphis to Istanbul. If you like harmonica there is some rambunctious blowing here - duelling, pumping,fat and greasy as Walter Horton's "Easy". Above all,these guys love what they are doing and that gusto pours out of every track. Febrile energy, panache, vim, pep and zing shot through with an engaging New York wit and surreality. You will need several copies to feed the need to turn on your friends.

I bought this CD after a personal recommendation (Hi reb!) who basically told me "You're weird, try this." Well, she was right. This is both Barking and Wunnerful ! Reading the blurb, this sounds distinctly like a novelty : perhaps a makeshift band put together for a student show. I mean, twin harmonicas, contra-bass saxophone, tuba, Tuvan Throat Singers... It's a joke. Right?

No, it's distinctly odd, but musically it's definitely grounded in the American Blues tradition, although other bits seems more grounded in Tin Pan Alley tradition. By using an eclectic selection of world music instruments, it gives it a whole new perspective. Hmm. I'm risking slipping into pretentious mode, so I'll just recommend it and say its eclectic, eccentric and non-electric.

Oh, just for balance, there's one track I just have to skip ("Lost Fox Train"), but the track "Bahamut" is just so joyous, the CD still deserves 5 stars.

And remember, this CD is best enjoyed on the back of a blood-red ox with fifty eyes, which fits inside one of the Bahamut's tears.

This is living proof thAt there is life in the 12 bar blues form. Seldom have I heard a band have so much fun. This recording is simply a joy.

Amazing album - discovered while sitting in a cafe, and completely hooked. I now want the track "Bahamut" played at my funeral. It will be sure to get people on their feet dancing. Great musicianship and great wit combine in an album full of energy and oomf!

Fanbloomintastic!

Gogol Bordello went to a Bar Mitzvah with The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and the (friendly) monster of Hazmat Modine was created.
