PETER STAMPFEL AND THE BROOKLYN & LOWER MANHATTAN BANJO SQUADRON: Better Than Expected: CD

An experimental half-finished banjo album with crowd-sourced lyrics. The instrumental numbers provide good background music, but I just can’t get over how strange it all is. Case in point: Stampfel is still accepting lyrics for the unfinished songs. What a post-modern world we live in!
