That is a drag.

It’s not Chris Phillips, who’s apparently not even on the tour. It’s Jimbo, and it’s ultimately okay. I quit the band many years ago, so I can’t really have a problem with the continuation of something called Squirrel Nut Zippers. (This is also why I have nothing against the talented players who make up the current lineup.) I do have an issue with this bunch touring the 20th anniversary of the HOT record, and with Jimbo essentially taking credit for all of it. The SNZ that I was a part of was a DIY band. We took cues from none but ourselves, and created our own style. Read this recent oral history, as it will tell you all you need to know:

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
