ASYLUM STREET SPANKERS, SCRAPPY HAMILTON -- See Asylum Street Spankers in Record Reviews. An old-timey hand-jiving anachronism in the Squirrel Nut Zippers vein, Asheville's Scrappy Hamilton captures the gleeful, freewheeling spirit of old ragtime and boogie-woogie beautifully. Unlike some of the less imaginative revival-flavored bands, however, Scrappy Hamilton never seems confined by the rules of a dated style, instead sneaking in their own refreshingly contemporary musical glimpses. Smith's Olde Bar (Hutchinson)
