Magic Teapot presents…

The Jeffrey Lewis and Peter Stampfel Band

plus support
The Jeffrey Lewis & Peter Stampfel Band hits the UK in May 2013, with a new album in tow!  Songwriter and visual artist Jeffrey Lewis is renowned for his six albums of twisted garage-indie-folk on Rough Trade, while Grammy winner Peter Stampfel now celebrates 50(!) years of making totally off-the-wall folk music, most famously with the Holy Modal Rounders and the Fugs (in addition to being featured on the Easy Rider soundtrack, and more notable albums and collaborations than you’d care to count).

Although forty years apart in age, these two New Yorkers share an obsession with both comic books and songs, as well as a collaborative history that has spawned some of the most unexpected and delightful music of recent years! A tour from this pair (and their full 5-piece band, including Franic of the Wave Pictures on mandolin) is an event not to be missed.

 "…it’s a gig of equals. They are quite a duo, this mismatched but perfectly compatible pair of New Yorkers."The Guardian 4/5
