New Music: Tim Timebomb and Friends – “Sheik of Araby”

The latest Tim Timebomb and Friends installment is a cover of the 1920’s composition “Sheik of Araby”. You can stream it right here. Here’s what Tim had to say about the song:

“This one’s an old tin pan alley hit that cashed in on the latest craze of a Rudy Vallentino film back in 1921. Jack Teagarden and Red Nichols both recorded versions of it, making it a jazz standard in the 1930s. One of the composers, Ted Snyder was posting theater bills and playing cafe piano in Chicago. Harry Smith was a music and drama critic in Chicago. They began collaborating on Broadway scores after moving to NYC.”

Tim Timebomb is the latest side project from Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, who has been releasing a long series of singles on iTunes every week since the beginning of December 2012 through Hellcat Records. Tim is currently on tour with Rancid.
