Zoot Suit Riot

( 4 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Somewhat conspicuously following the novelty success of Squirrel Nut Zippers, the Cherry Poppin' Daddies released the album Zoot Suit Riot, culling the best "straight" swing tracks from their first three albums, instead of the rock- and ska-influenced songs that inform much of those LPs. There are a few cuts that have a catchy hook and are reasonably infectious.

    What a Riot

    I had never heard of the Cherry Poppin' Daddies, but had heard the song Zoot Suit Riot. So I just had to give the Daddies a try. The whole CD is GREAT. Just full of toe-tapping numbers. The lyrics to the songs are super. I love, love this genre of music and the Daddies won't let you down

    Zoot suit riot! Pull a comb through your coal black hair!

    1997's "Zoot Suit Riot" is a hip, volatile album that allowed the Cherry Poppin' Daddies to make the old swing genre new again. In a brief period when Brian Setzer and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy were heating up the dance floors, this CD managed to stand out on its own. While the blaring horns, primal drums, sliding saxophone, and feverish piano highlight the record's sonic twists and turns, frontman Steve Perry belts out his lyrics with a forked tongue. Beneath the seedy glamour of 1930's Hollywood, his razor-sharp lyrics are painted with shocking episodes of sex, alcoholism, and drug abuse. Fortunately, the overall content is not at all distasteful. Even the explicit language can be easily ignored by the jiving flappers and mobsters of the period. The album's famous single, "Zoot Suit Riot," is an infectious swing classic with a spirited, lava-hot chorus. Both "Ding-Dong Daddy" and "Cherry Poppin' Daddy Strut" are tongue-in-cheek tracks that center around a naughty playboy. The jazzed up "When I Change Your Mind" and the gyrating "Here Comes the Snake" are sexually-charged songs that let Perry sweep lonely ladies off their feet. The percolating "Mr White Keys" is a brief narrative about a sleazy car salesman involved with a local gangster. "Brown Derby Jump" is a light-hearted nightmare about a dangerous dame. This track is followed by the rattling "Dr. Bones," which concerns a crazed lunatic who carries more than an 8-ball in his pocket. The decadent "Pink Elephant" takes audiences out to an exclusive bar where homeless drunks eat out of garbage cans. "Master and Slave" and "Drunk Daddy" are embittered and angry accounts of Perry's childhood he reveals in graphic detail how he grew up in a broken home, beaten and tortured by his own father. It's quite clear here that the lead singer carries scars that will take a lifetime to heal. "No Mercy For Swine" appears to recall his latter years. This particular song explains how he was once a depressed soul who drowned away his sorrows in beer and women. Finally, the entertaining rhythms of "Shake Your Lovemaker" bear musical hints of Broadway show tunes and the tap dances of Fred Astaire. "Zoot Suit Riot" is a CD I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys live theatre and smart, contemporary songs. Who wants to throw back a bottle of beer?

    It's Swing for the Millenium!

    These guys are great! Fantastic sound, terrific vocals, Twenty-first century values! I loved ''Shake Your Lovemaker'' and ''Come Back to Me'' especially. These guys rock! Unlike the 50s and the 60s, which sucked, the 40s were cool except people couldn't say things like ''Mama Married A Big *sshole'' as the Daddies do in ''Drunk Daddy''. This is a 40s beat with an 00s edge! A Stripper friend has made this line from ''Shake Your Lovemaker'' her signature: ''Da Blonde Bombshell Destroyin Men/Her Blue Eyes Are Smoky Like An Opium Den/First She Giggles And She Blows You A Kiss/Then She Whispers Sweet Nothins Like A Serpent's Hiss''!!! Fine, huh!? These guys rule!
