Guano and Nitrates Review - No Quarter Magazine
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
