The Moldy Suitcases

 “They play old style speakeasy swinging jazz paintbrush suitcase smashing Holiday siren singing banjo twanging Furious howling at the moon dancing to imaginary cartoon RetroFuturistic beebop–and they’re going to blow your mind!” — Artist Tim Gastall, Sonic Nova!

Written by Slim Gaillard, “Boot-Ta-La-Za” highlights the way the band connects past and present with a timeless spirit of musical playfulness.
