Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls: I'll Put My Voodoo On You

English old school vaudeville blues trio Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls are building on their formula on their new album, I'll Put My Voodoo On You, a collection of good-natured songs about death, drugs and the devil, topped off with plenty of sexual innuendo. They sound tight but loose, laying down captivating grooves on top of walking bass.

With three multi-instrumentalists in the band they have a wealth of sounds to choose from, but none of the tracks is overcrowded, so it won't be a problem to transfer the songs to their natural habitat: the stage. I'll Put My Voodoo On You is a celebration of good-time music. People who sit still during tracks like Little Dead Lovin' or Crazy Little Demon In Love should consult their GP posthaste. It is a cliché, but yes, that the devil has the best tunes.

Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls:
Jo Carley: vocals, fiddle, washboard
Tim Carley: guitar, foot tambourine, kick-drum, hi-hat, percussion
James Le Huray: double bass, banjo
