Squirrel Nut Zippers - Bad Bussinessman

"Nut Zippers," is a southern term for a variety of old bootleg moonshine, and the band's name comes from a newspaper account which related the story of a highly intoxicated man who climbed a tree one night, refusing to come down even after authorities arrived. The article's headline read: "Squirrel Nut Zipper."

The Squirrel Nut Zippers is a band formed in 1993 whos eclectic fusion of Delta blues, gypsy jazz, 1930s-era swing, klezmer, and other styles makes them hard to categorize, their unique music found a niche in the late 1990's, when the band met with national recognition and commercial success, sometimes associated with the Swing Revival of the same period.

The Hell album was certified platinum (more than 1 million copies sold) in less than an year. From this album, Bad bussinessman. C'mon, get with the beat...
