Happy Merry Passover!

"Jewmongous is really just an extension of my bar mitzvah, simultaneously embracing and rebelling against my heritage."
-Sean Altman

Sean Altman, half of the now defunct comedy duo What I Like About Jew, is back, and although this time performing under the name Jewmongous, he's still having fun with his religion. And as his website proclaims, he's here to play unkosher comedy songs, and you'll find plenty of them on the album. You'll find bubble-gum rock, circus waltzes, an Irish shanty, big band swing, a jazz ballad, blues, a klezmer cover of the Ramones' I Wanna Be Sedated, and so on and so on. There is something here for everyone (so long as they can laugh a little).

And for today, Sean has cooked up They Tried to Kill Us (We Survived, Let's Eat) in the spirit of Passover! Think of Jewish version of They Might be Giants set to every imaginable musical genre available and you'll come close to Taller Than Jesus, this outrageous collection of 15 tracks

I love Sean Altman. Saw him Christmas Eve two years ago. Happy Passover!

It's a brilliant album, both lyrically and musically. And I'm a goy.
