HOW'S BAYOU - "Two Step De Maman" (1987)

In 1987, I got this cool Cajun tape from a Seattle band with one of the greatest play on words for a band name called How's Bayou called "New Melody Stomp!"  

 Here's Mike Bristow on Bass, Karen England on Fiddle,  Ben Lang playing percussion, Dave Lang on Accordion and lead vocals, and Paul Mooney on Guitar and Harmony Vocals with

"Laissez les bons temps rouler!"


  1. Hello Eagah!!
    Very interesting blog you have here-thanx for sharing those rare cassettes...this is my blog:
    we can add up our blogs in our blog list...let me know if you are up for it...

  2. Thanx and Sure! I've added a link to your blog on the sidebar! I'll have to investigate all the music on your site as well! I also have quite a few Euro tapes to list! Cheers!

  3. It's because they played the New Melody Tavern in Seattle quite a bit. That venue changed hands and became the Tractor Tavern in '94. Been a key music joint ever since (as was the Neew Melody in its day).

    Heck, I recorded a How's Bayou set in there once.
