You probably have seen Shelley Rickey's cigar box uke video before.  Now she's back with a plastic bucket washtub bass in the band, The Mourning Glories.  This Rotterdam trio delivers some pure voodoo 3-part vocals and Deep South sound (Rickey is originally from Mississippi).

Excellent trio. ;)

Great stuff,i've been a fan of C W's stuff for years,you certainly do it justice

Thanks Darryl. We adore CW too. That was our biggest fear... that he wouldn't be pleased. But, he has since sent us a message saying he liked it and even added it to his YouTube page. Very cool. Thanks again. : )

Dig it. Perfect and pure fun. Nice vid too. 

Cool stuff, thanks.

Great sound, Mourning Glories - really like your attitude and lo-fi awesome!


As someone who actually served 20 consecutive years locked up in the Texas prison system, your tune would be warmly received by those who are still behind the miles of razor wire :-) 

43rd Shamrock :-)

Anybody locked up in a Texas prison system could surely use some song. Always happy to do a 'jailbird concert'. : )

Really like this one. Shelley and the girls have a great old school sound and I love the vocal harmonies. I look forward to hearing more :-)

Nice work ladies - I enjoyed that!
