The Banjo Ninja

A few days back I was introduced to the Banjo Ninja
[via Boingboing] and found myself instantly hooked to the 'gritty hard edge Appalachian claw-hammer and Scruggs style banjo with punk rock intensity'.
The more I watched video and listened to streaming tracks on Phillip Roebuck's
web site, the more I liked it, particularly Summons Song
, which blew me away. Other great tunes include Little Bo Peep
and Monkey Fist. The downside to my newfound musical interest is that being in Hong Kong I can't buy any of the tracks via iTunes or Amazon, which sucks royally because I would love to send Phillip some money for my favourite tracks.
After searching MeFi all I could find was one brief mention in the green back in 2007
(which I missed as I don't always visit Ask MeFi), and couldn't believe Roebuck hasn't been introduced via the blue, so I hereby rectify that situation.
It may not suit everyone's tastes, but I defy you not to tap your feet.
