Drawing on the salvaged sounds of American juke joints, back porches, honky tonks and rock clubs, The Suitcase Junket (the stage name of Matt Lorenz) is an artist, tinkerer, swamp yankee, and one-man band. His is the road-worn voice rising over the grind of a tube-amped dumpster guitar, with wild double pitches of throat singing. From The Suitcase Junket's penchant for thrift and ingenuity comes original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos and dance-hall melodies, played on instruments built of broken bottles, twisted forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, and an overhead compartment’s worth of luggage. “It’s an astonishing thing to watch,” says WBUR-FM, “for just one guy, he stirs up a considerable racket!”
