Skip spandex; these guys ride in kilts



Emerson, Ia. – The question asked of the Subtle Savages team is always the same: What’s under the kilt?

The answer is always the same too.

“Nothing,” said Don Baker of Kansas City. “We’re traditional.”

The 30-some member team is touring the state in a flame-emblazoned bus complete with stripper pole. Every man on the team wears a kilt, and every woman dresses differently throughout the trip. Later in the week, the women will don Catholic school girl outfits.

“It’s worth every penny,” Cedar Rapids resident Tommy Juhl said with a sly grin.

So what’s it like pedaling down the road in a wool kilt on a sunny day?

“They’re comfortable to ride in,” Baker said.

“Very airy,” said Joel Altringer of Des Moines.

Fresh from posing for a photo with a new fan, Juhl thought of another perk of the traditional Scottish garment: “The old ladies dig it.”

You will want a polyphony of around 60 notes in a
person’s piano. If you’re serious about recording in a home
studio, you shouldn’t let any instrument go
into your mix that hasn’t been absolutely
optimized. Then you can start looking at (or listening to, as the case may) such other factors as piano tone quality,
