See two cool reviews of the new Du-Tels (Peter Stampfel and Gary Lucas) reissue of "No Knowledge of Music Required"
on Don Giovanni Records, in Kurt Gottschalk's Wiggly Air
column, and from Downtown Music Gallery
Starting in August of 1994, their concerts in the New York area have been celebrated for their freewheeling madness and whimsy as Lucas (acoustic guitar, vocals) and Stampfel (fiddle, mandolin, banjo and vocals) romp through sets of material ranging from a crazed version of Joseph Spence's "Out on the Rolling Sea" to the "Astro-Boy Theme"
with stops in between to songs by Charlie Patton, the 5 Keys, The Stanley Brothers and other Lucas/Stampfel heroes, as well as (of course) their own inimitable originals such as Peter's haunting "Wisconsin Honeymoon" and Gary's succinct "Apismatisin'"
' long-awaited debut album "No Knowledge of Music Required"
is out on Shimmy Disc.

A great vehicle for Gary Lucas to display his acoustic virtuosity outside Gods and Monsters
and have fun with his pal Peter!
