Claypool’s latest concoction is Duo de Twang, where he creates twisted and funky Roots music and traditional Country with guitarist Bryan Kehoe. Kehoe is an alumnus of outfits such as the Jerry Cantrell Band, Ministry and Claypool’s Frog Brigade. He also fronts the Western Gothic group Kehoe Nation.
The best way to get hip to the Duo de Twang is to look them up on YouTube, where you will see them riff on Claypool gems such as “Jerry Was A Race Car Driver,” “Rumble of the Diesel,” “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver” and “Buzzards of Green Hill,” as well as Johnny Horton’s classic “Battle of New Orleans.”
LES CLAYPOOL'S DUO DE TWANG plays Saturday, Oct.
19 at Madison Theater in Covington, Ky. Buy tickets, check out performance times and get venue details here.
