Asylum Street Spankers | UssPost

February 7, 2010 by USA Post 

Asylum Street Spankers | UssPost:The Asylum Street Spankers is well-known band whose music is formed in early 20th century musical forms in Austin, Texas in 1994. In fall 2006, the band’s anti-war satire video “Stick Magnetic Ribbons on Your SUV” garnered 380,000 views on YouTube within the first two months of its release, eventually exceeding one million views

For 15 years, Asylum Street Spankers’ members have been tearing it up in their hometown of Austin, Texas, and around the country. They perform a original blend of acoustic blues, string-band swing-jazz, folk and even a few kids’ songs, all advanced with wit and panache. Now, the group has turned its ability to gospel music with a humbly titled new album called God’s Favorite Band.

More than 30 members have come and gone in the course of Asylum Street Spankers’ career — only Christina Marrs and Wammo remain. As they recall it, the two met at a party. “Out in Llano, Texas, there’s a place called the Dabbs Hotel,” Wammo says. “They have something called the Llano Bolano Show. It’s an artist-only party, and you had to perform something to attend. And [Marrs'] talent was she twirled a fire baton to Primus. It was amazing.”
