Scumbags, street kids, and train traveling troubadours assemble! Celebrate the new year with a debaucherous Spicecast triple feature featuring the down and dirty jangling sounds of The Percocets, Saw Mama and local scoundrels The Box Wine Bandits! The Percocets hail from NYC and feature a sound as raw as the streets themselves. Saw Mama AKA Mars comes to us from L.A. She’s a multi lingual, multi instrumental tour de force playing everything from Banjo to spoons and her specialty the musical saw. Our featured guests The Box Wine Bandits hail from right here in the valley. In their own words they play dirty rotten scum gutter trash folk punk. They’ll steal your wine and flirt with your girlfriends all before the cops come. All three of these acts are tour right now coming to a gutter near you! They’ll be in Huntsville January 5th at Ward House.
Getting his start making albums with his band A Symptom of Leisure, Drew Richter has always been involved in the music business in some fashion.

Since writing an intensive paper on divorce in the 19th century in Alabama, John O’Brien found time and time again, evidence that The Tennessee Valley has always been a crazy place.
O’Brien utilizes the extensive archives of Alabama’s oldest city, Huntsville, to find some of the most bizarre, hilarious, and telling stories in Alabama history.
From brothel busts and UFOs to spited lovers and family feuds O’Brien’s blog “Huntsvillain” covers all the dirty laundry of Alabama History, and there’s a LOT of it.
On today’s Spicecast O’Brien discusses his blog and upcoming podcast and apparently the only Christmas story he could dredge up, the only hint I can give you is it involves 4 men and corn.
Black Market Haggis comprised of Andy, Garret and Mike are in the Studio with some new spins on some age old dance music.

We hear “The Shannon Bell”, “Babes in the Woods”, “The Moontown Set” and “Concertina Reel Set” on today’s spicecast.
