Freakwater's Janet Bean and Catherine Irwin first put their distinctive harmonies to tape under a swinging Kentucky country ham in Janet's parent's basement in 1985. Over three decades and eight infrequently released albums, Catherine and Janet's unflinching lyrics and compelling vocal harmonies can stab you in the heart from a mile away. Freakwater continues its tradition of defying classifications on the new album, Scheherazade, coming February 5th.
Time to kick out the Jams! Rob K (Workdogs, Gibson Brothers) and Uncle Butcher (Thee Butcher's Orchestra) make their long-awaited return to WFMU delivering their unique brand of trash blues-silky soul rock 'n roll.
