Hailed as one of the most popular bands of the 22nd Century, the WhizBang Shufflers broke into the music scene in 2004, but were largely unappreciated until an explosion of popularity that hit in 2102 and hasn't let up since. Music fans and critics alike have called them "Breathtaking", "Mind-Boggling", and "The most important thing to happen to music since the invention of the G chord."
In this recently released retrospective, "The WhizBang Shufflers - Baffle the Bird of Death", their brief but brilliant musical career is fully explored and appreciated. From the hard-driving rhythms of "It's All New" to the sweet landscapes of "Undiscovered Country", this recording brings the history of this musical enigma into your homes and hearts.
A celebration, a testimony, an epitaph.
