The Scene Is Now

The Scene is Now is a New York City-based avant-garde jug band from the 1980s. Its founding members were Dick Champ, Philip Dray, Jeff McGovern (also of Mofungo), and Chris Nelson. Their songs, most of which are compiled on the album "The Oily Years", tend to be somewhat rough, lo-fi recordings. The best known of their songs, "Yellow Sarong", was later covered by Yo La Tengo for 1990 album Fakebook.[citation needed] Thurston Moore called the band's sound "drunken sailor music", as a compliment.
