Author & Special Guests

We're back with another listener suggestion for episode #111 as we return to the world of 90s one-hit wonders and the 1996 album Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy by The Refreshments. Combining bar-band like guitar crunch with clever lyrics, FFBB shows of the Arizona band's musical range, adding elements unique to the Southwest like Mariachi rhythms and horns, and plenty of references to Mexico. There's no doubting "Banditos" worthiness as a 90s hit, but does the rest of the album measure up?
