Another Kind Voice on Music will feature The Kissers from Madison Wisconsin.  After a six year hiatus the Irish Folk Rock group has reunited to create an all new album "Three Sails"

The Kissers are known for the frenzied energy of their live shows, their off-kilter humor, and their eclectic instrumentation. Violin, banjo, accordion, and an array of sonic effects combine with diverse musical influences for a unique sound that straddles the gap between indie-rock and Irish music. Audiences and reviewers, trying to describe them, cite bands as varied as the Shins, Pogues, and the Decemberists. The Kissers maintain that they are rock musicians who learned to play Irish music, not vice versa, and so their music sometimes feels more at home in a club than in a pub.

The Kissers will join host Mitch Ruth and for our show, we will feature some past favorites from the Band, discuss the future, hopefully get a few sneak peeks and find out just what they wear under those kilts (wait, that's Scottish....never mind). I may also ask that eternal question: "If you were a tree what would be your favorite brand of breath mint?"
