Mungo Park is a folk/pop duo based in NJ USA. They are named after the main charcter in T.C. Boyles novel 'Water Music', also a real life 18th century Scottish explorer. They are Bill Craig- guitar and vocals. And Ed Sikora- bass and background vocals. They write and play listenable,catchy, sometimes perverse pop songs in a folky acoustic (for the most part, but also featuring some great keyboard work by famed keys-whiz Rave Tesar)format.This collection also features the mighty Mike Casey on drums and young guitar-upstart Alex Craig. An outstanding example of their versatility and skewed world-view is the track 'Jack Ruby's Twistboard', while 'No Deeper Blue' recalls folk legend Tim Buckley.
