11 tracks according to the spirit of old, deep Louisiana black roots.The band formed in New York City and released a split EP on Norton Records with the intent to make Zydeco music the way it was intended to be made. Subway Zydeco is an album full of new experiences for the band. Mick Collins (Gories/Dirtbombs) taps into his Louisiana roots in this new project. He was inspired by the black -creole Blues, the Zydeco whose roots go back to the 18th century. The music arose as a synthesis of traditional Creole music, some Cajun music influences, and African-American traditions, including R&B, blues, jazz and gospel. Melodeon, accordion and French lyrics are still the foundation of Broadway Lafayettes music. But they are not their grandfathers - or even their fathers' - they mixed it with lots of rough energy.
