Joey The Tush Kangaroo aka JTK was Sid Yiddish’s first band, a two-man duo that chiefly performed original songs, spoken word and cover tunes and performed at open mics & venues including Gallery Cabaret, No Exit & Pangea in Chicago. The band name was a parody play on words with regards to older mafia nicknames. Members of the duo were Lew Brickhate on guitar & Sid Yiddish on vocals. The group lasted a total of eight months during 1995.
