Out now: Earl Zinger & Don Rogall 10"
posted October 17th, 2014Earl Zinger & Don Rogall - Vol. 1 - out now on Stag-O-Lee. The first of two limited 10"-es - a second 10" will follow soon, as well as a CD with the tracks from both 10"-es plus three bonuscuts.
Deep down from the swamp delta of Berlin, D.C., and straight outta Gin Lane, Londinium: The feral stepsons of carpet dealers and long forgotten record sellers, Don Rogall and Earl Zinger, with their long awaited debut on the probably best label of the western hemisphere (well, now it is).
The music? Rock´n Blues, dealing with some nasty boogie, jive and ingredients of exotic origin - a new breed of juke joint anthems.
Earl Zinger is a London based cult hero (Galliano etc.) and Don Rogall lives in Berlin. He is a musician, but also a well-known DJ
with a Bassy residence amongst others.

Out now: Tav Falco's special trip!
posted September 24th, 2014This one is titled Tav Falco's Wonderful World Of Musical And Exotic Obscurities and Stag-O-Lee is mighty proud to release it. Because we love these left-field releases, the special ones. It's like having a lot of kids, but some of them need special attention... this release is one of them.
For this one, Tav Falco, the Memphis legend (of Panther Burns fame) compiled 25 of his favourite tunes from 50s rockabilly to tangos, valtzes & quite a bunch of other wonderful obscurities. Songs he loves, songs he covered with Panther Burns, songs that influenced him. Thus shedding much light upon the music that incessantly ignites Falco's muse.
This is a wild and wonderful ride. A Back To Mine-style compilation that will open your ears.
Double vinyl comes in a nice gatefold sleeve with extensive liner notes by the maestro himself. CD comes with 20-page booklet.
Out Now: Legendary Shack Shakers!
posted September 10th, 2014Right in time for their reunion Stag-O-Lee releases Agri.Dustrial, the latest album by Legendary Shack Shakers on vinyl for the first time. The album features a new track, a new running order and a proper vinyl remastering.
A roots rock juggernaut from Nashville, TN, the Legendary Shack Shakers are a hot-rodded foursome combining blues, rockabilly, country, and rock & roll into one manic assemblage boasting all the gloriously explosive instability of an M-80. Fronted by the manic JD Wilkes, who when not busy with music (he also leads the Dirt Daubers) is also known as a visual artist, publishing comic books and creating elaborate "carnival art" murals on discarded roll-up projection screens.
The Legendary Shack Shakers existed from 2000 until 2010 with Agri.Dustrial being their last release. On this record we hear new guitarist Duane Denison (Hank III, Jesus Lizard), who plays with the enthusiastic power of his predecessors, while new drummer Brett Whitacre drives his kit like it's a semi full of dynamite rolling down a steep hill with no brakes. Singer Colonel JD Wilkes matches the mania of his bandmates, and with longtime bass man Mark Roberts in tow, they deliver a disc packed with sizzling slabs of rock mayhem. This is one sweet and evil ride. 16 songs in 38 minutes. Fasten seat belts.
The Legendary Shack Shakers play like their lives depend on wringing the maximum force out of every note. Agri.Dustrial - already a timeless classic.
