Duo de Twang’s “Four Foot Shack” now streaming on RollingStone.com, more tour dates added

Four Foot Shack

Four Foot Shack, the debut album from Les Claypool’s back porch pickin’ project Duo de Twang, hits stores this Tuesday, but you can hear the whole thing now over at RollingStone.com. And yes, the bluegrassified, Dixie disco version of the Bee Gee’s “Stayin’ Alive” is every bit as bonkers as we’d hoped it would be.

Why the sudden interest in stripped-down, acoustic guitar/bass/foot stompin’ arrangements? “This record represents what I personally listen to these days,” Claypool told Rolling Stone. “Guys like Johnny Horton, Jerry Reed and Vernon Dalhart are the soundscape of my world as I’m boiling up crab in the backyard or working on my old Chryslers, so the notion of ‘twangifying’ my tunes seemed like a damn good idea.”

You can pre-order (or just order, if you’re reading this on or after Feb. 4th) Four Foot Shack via Amazon.com or Claypool’s own Club Bastardo online store. And you can still catch Les and his Duo de Twang partner-in-crime Bryan Kehoe on tour, with the following dates announced so far:
