Poor Little Fools

Poor Little Fools

Play The Fools

Hit House

“Rockin’ Rollin’ Honky Tonkin’ Swing-a-Billy” exclaims the cover, and Poor Little Fools deliver. For that noticeable portion of people who go out these days, turning an eye away from the incoming millennium and instead swinging the night away, this will be the ticket for home practice. Poor Little Fools are top-notch (if a little dated, heh) and have a good notion of when to mess with the genre and when to leave it alone. They also have a fine sense of humor. Swing purists might be offended (“hey, that’s my grandpa’s music you’re messin’ with!”), but I really appreciate the more interesting moments, like the near-surf instrumental of “Donna Goes to Tijuana” and the cool menace of “Dean Martin (Gets Chicks!)” Hit House Records, P.O. Box 660171, Atlanta, GA 30366
