These guys broke big around the time that swing starting coming back. I would classify Squirrel Nut Zippers more as klezmer music, and less as swing. It doesn’t matter what you classify the band as, because the music is great, inspired and a blast to listen to. Even though the songs/themes are completely unrelatedly, I feel like this might be the prequel to my Mountain Goats sketch.
