Peter Stampfel & Baby Gramps!!! Red Newt Records brings together for the first time two legends of Freak Folk and icons of cartoony musical madness. The video on our Bios & Reviews page gives you a preview of what they sound like as a duo.

Peter Stampfel, co-founder of the Holy Modal Rounders, has been described by critics as "next to Bob Dylan, the closest thing to a genius folkiedom has ever thrown up."

Baby Gramps is an astonishing amalgram of everything that anybody's ever heard from Uncle Dave Macon, Charlie Patton, Blind Blake, to Mississippi John Hurt, Captain Beefheart and (yes) Popeye The Sailor Man. Amazingly, this is Gramps' first studio recording.

Ass In The Air

Peter Stampfel & his daughter Zoe with a collection of duets. Their de"but" album. Like nothing you've heard before (unless you've seen them in New York as part of the Ether Frolic Mob). More brilliant outrageousness!
