Music Mondays – Gentlemen in Squalor

This song is nasty; just listen to the lyrics and the rhythm! Dig the costumes, love the sound, and adore the lindy hoppers!!

Top Shelf Jazz – Direct from Lucifer’s drinks cabinet, a band whose original tunes are so distinctive and licentious that they spawned their own delectable style: ‘Filthy Swing’. Devout fans know the ‘Jazz Age’ never finished and that Gatsby lives on! Born in the dark cabaret dens of Europe, the inimitable style and rakish banter of Top Shelf Jazz make them a most notorious and revered band. You will be driven to drink and dance with wild abandon. So lock up your morals, break open the liquor and leave your troubles at the door! – CD Baby

    Thanks for the reminder about Top Shelf! It’s been months since I’ve listened to them, which has been months too long.
    I pretty much live my life according to this video.
