Album Notes
Longtime Portland folk troubadours Chris \"Zydeco Skeeter\" Miskow and Pat Buckley have revived the band they originally founded back in 1993. The Pagan Jug Band\'s current incarnation features an all-acoustic lineup of banjo, dobro, accordion, fiddle, guitar, upright bass and percussion, deftly mixing straight-ahead bluegrass, folk and country blues, and Louisiana Zydeco. The material is drawn from a variety of classic country, folk and roots sources, along with a large body of original songs.

A review from the June 2000 Portland Mercury:
(Laurelthirst) For visitors to the Rose City, no doubt eagerly awaiting the opportunity to watch goat-head-costumed heretics lead the jamboree, the Pagan Jug Band is not noticeably connected to pre-Christian ritual. Their songs are packed with drunkenness and sex and the wages of sin, the musicians have the look of men once involved in bloodsport, but they have rather little to do with any organized religion. Organization itself, they have something of a problem with. As long as anyone can remember--okay, at least a decade--the boys have met up a few times a month for a remarkably eclectic set of acoustic free-for-alls. With members on bass, drums, washboard, banjo, and guitar (and whatever else someone happened to bring) supporting the enormously charismatic frontman Pat Buckley, they perform most every type of music, from bluegrass to Celtic to old-time funk and beyond, with an infectious vigor and memorable form. (Well, to be fair, they play every type of music that fits comfortably with a man playing the washboard. Speed garage, say, rarely gets a chance.) The banjo player is alternately known as Skeeter for the hillbilly numbers and Jean-Claude for the Cajun songs, when he plays an accordion. More bands should be like this. JAY HORTON

My name is, H. C. Chrest. I am a free-lance music critic currently supplying reviews for “The Audiophile Voice” magazine. I am constantly in the search for cd releases that I would consider worthy of review. I specialize in several musical categories including: traditional bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, new acoustic, progressive bluegrass, folk, and related re-issues of works of historical importance.

Previously, I have been on the writing staffs of Bluegrass Unlimited (3) years, Bluegrass Now (2) years, Precious Memories (2) years, and Acoustic Musician (3) years. Due to this related experience, I feel that I can listen objectively and impartially to your project.

Recently, the Editor of The Audiophile Voice and former 20 year Editor of Audio commented about my reviews, \"Frankly, I think that your writing and your judgments in the musical areas you cover are as good as I\'ve ever seen in the genre, as good as Benjamin Ivry\'s are over there in classical. It is clear to me from your writing AND your choices that you do love the music and get a very large amount of \"happy\" sharing the good stuff.\"

Please note that I refuse all remuneration for my reviews. My sole aim is to let readers become aquainted with these genres. Also, review space is limited and the competition is very intense so if your work is not selected the first time, do not think that it was lacking, just continue to send your latest releases. I will let you know

If you would like for your project to be considered for possible submission, please rush it to my attention. I will personally listen to all CD’s and consider them for possible review. Please include any tear sheets and/or promo packets. This material can make the review more informative and interesting. Also, please feel free to add my name to you permanent mailing list for any future releases.

If you have received a previous request and have not submitted your work, consider this a reminder. If you have previously submited a cd please disregard this request
Thank you and best wishes,
H. C. Chrest
Music Critic
