The Seventh Band of IMAF



It was the best of times, and for the seventh band of IMAF, the advisory committee brought to you The End of Times Spasm Band. When was the last time you heard (or saw for that matter) anyone play the quijada? Never, that’s when. Because the quijada is the jawbone from a horse and, to be blunt, no one plays that thing anymore (though who wouldn’t welcome its re-introduction into marching band?). Yet in the tattooed arms of Spasm’s singer Lyndsy Rae, and the sort of Prohibition-era good time jazz the band plays, it makes perfect sense (and really does sound pretty terrific).
