Fourteen tracks of full on New Orleans / High School / Military / Freak style marching music. All killer no filler featuring 100 plus members (including at various time PEACHES, BLACK LIPS, ANDREW WK, and just about every punk band in New Orleans). Side A was recorded during an actual neighborhood parade at Mardi Gras 2011 and Side B was recorded between 2006 and 2010 at Spellcaster Lodge parade rehearsals. The music here is all cover songs except the drum cadences. The Halloween / Exorcist theme on glockenspiels is especially creepy! This ain’t a joke band and it aint scruffles playing dress up. 9TH WARD MARCHING BAND feature some of the finest musicians in the city and have been around for over 15 years. They march exclusively for their city in Mardi Gras parades...no rock clubs, no world tours, no wicker man, etc....only the streets! This is their first album and is limited to 500 copies. Pressed on split red and white vinyl. Released on QUINTRON’s own Rhinestone imprint.
