Crazy Joe (AKA Joe Tritschler) is by day an engineering lecturer at Wright State University in Ohio teaching everything from bioinstrumentation to linear systems. He's also worked as a freelance recording engineer and session musician and (briefly) in the defense industry. Crazy Joe has designed and built custom recording equipment for studios all over the country, including his own, and even recorded narration for an Emmy Award-winning documentary. He currently makes an all-tube phono preamplifier based on a design he's been refining for the last 17 years. Crazy Joe has toured the world playing many styles of roots music, from rockabilly and surf to blues, jazz, and funk, and still tours and records every chance he gets.
Blessed with zingy, self mocking humor, suburban country heartache, and guitar chops galore, the latest by Crazy Joe and the Mad River Outlaws skillfully traverses country, blues, garage rock and Les Paul-via-Deke Dickerson style rockabilly.
By far the best album I've heard this year.
