about

Expect cheeky rhythm’n’blues, new-gospel, saucy swing, fruity funk and rude blues from the ladies’ perspective from On The Ragtime.

Original songs penned by Mama Tokus tackle eye-rolling subject matter including: love for older men, a celebration of bigger butts, wifebeating and the plus-points of choosing a child-free lifestyle.

Ingenious covers are dotted throughout, including a blues mash-up of a Sex Pistols number, a reheating of 1937’s If It Don’t Fit Don’t Force It (originally a hit for Barrelhouse Annie), plus a beatbox-boosted version of the Pointer Sisters’ classic Yes We Can Can.
