Ice Cream Man Dreams

Saint Dirt Elementary School

This newest effort from St Dirt offers the most vivid image of this Toronto-based “junkyard jazz” combo. Musicworks, Canada

Saint Dirt Elementary School is a little big band; it’s a salon orchestra; it’s a cabaret pitband; it’s a New School concert band half-remembering old school psychedelics in a district West of Weimar and North of San Antonio. It is both public and private. It can swing like a Kollektief or shamble like a seaside sinfonia. Saint Dirt Elementary School plays compositions: rubberband exotica, bouncing like bamboo windchimes dangling from the hood of a springloaded pram.
