Guano and Nitrates Review - No Quarter Magazine

Jan-01-2008
No Quarter Magazine by Jamaica Rose

Guano + Nitrates" from the Valparaiso Men's Chorus, featuring the Tin Men. It's an album of traditional shanties. But it is very different from other albums of traditional shanties. It is sung as if by a pub full of drunken rowdies... sung the way sailors would have sung, with no holds barred, cursing and swearing like... well... drunken sailors.

Back to New Orleans, Gently

Nov-26-2006
The New York Times by Matt Gross

IT was a Friday afternoon in late October, and the narrow lanes of the French Quarter were quiet. Fresh paint — pale green, robin’s egg blue, canary yellow — adorned the low, tidy Creole cottages, and the wrought-iron railings of town-house balconies shone blackly in the sunlight. The streets were free of litter, the air unpolluted by the musky odor of all-night parties. But as I wandered the beautiful Quarter, one question stuck in my mind: Where was everybody?

Tin Men - Freaks For Industry reviewed in Offbeat

Hey folks. Welcome to the new Tin Men Web Site - www.tinmenmusic.com.

The Tin Men now have thier own site! (no more red-headed step child band, no sir-iee). We will still be sharing information with Washboard Chaz's site, and Alex's new site, but we feel that the Tin Men are standing on thier own now.  The coolest part will be that there will finally be song clips up for the Tin Men cds.

Also we’re working on the photos page for all you aficionados out there. If you have a picture to post on the site, send it in to info@tinmenmusic.com.

Bear in mind that the site is under a bit of construction. Thanks for your patience but drop a line anytime with complaints/comments etc.

I also have under construction new web sites for my other band 007 and my solo stuff.
