Yeah, I love this music!!!

Old jug bands and modal banjo tunes and what-not

It also has many surrealists qualities about it too. People turning into moles and lizards and stuff.

Sometimes it's very " ghostly as well (like dock bogg's "sugar baby" or clarance ashley's "cuckoo").

I hear alot of that stuff in the e6-related bands.

I always wanted to have a sort of post-modern jug band to play just whatever is sitting around, and make it sort of sepiatoned and ghostly noise like those recordings.

It sound so fantastical and honest at the same time.
