[SUBVERSIVE SWING] The Daddies have been at it for nearly a quarter of a century, and for those who aren’t in the know, these guys are far more than just a retro-swing band. They’ve also done a hell of a lot more than just 1997’s super-popular Zoot Suit Riot record. Singer Steve Perry and the gang have been doing whatever they want, infusing songs with elements of punk, rock’n’roll, psychobilly and rockabilly for the majority of their career, with swing being just part of the picture. New album, White Teeth, Black Thoughts—the band’s first swing record since Riot—pairs political and social commentary against upbeat music as seamlessly and subversively as ever. It’s a thought-provoking good time.
