'Nother song was "Lawyer Clark." Yeah. A lawyer in Brownsville, Huey Clark. Best lawyer they said, keep ya out of jail. He'd book John out of jail a lot of times, 'cause John get drunk every holiday and go to jail. They wouldn't make him pay nothin'. Let him out when he get sober. - Yank Rachell, from Blues Mandolin Man, by Richard Congress

Well I thought it was fairly hilarious, being into the funny side of Kung Fu movies, and the band are having a good time. Pretty freakin' bizarre though!  :P

Aaargh, I screwed up. I was wanting to move this to the other musical interests on youtube topic since it has more in common with that thread. Help! Workin' on it...

Later, phew, I successfully moved it to the right thread.

Kung fu clogging, imagine that.
I laughed at this! :P
Some of the facial expressions were pretty great, too.

The first quote in the quote generator this morning was from Snooks Eaglin: "Drop the bomb, y'all."

Here's the source. Go ahead, try not getting out of your chair and shakin' your booty while you're listening.

I've been told that Brazilian audiences love to sing along with the performer -- what a great tradition!

I just stumbled on this thread so I thought I would share some of my "Other Musical Interests". Here's one of my all time favorite groups live.



Got the name, still workin' on the licks!

Heard Jean Emilien from Madagascar tonight on KUT Austin World Music show and had to track something down to post here.

The man plays great understated diatonic harmonica as a lead instrument within the African music context. This clip is amped up and slightly overproduced(!) but stick with it and check out the instrumentation. Let's see we have 4 row button accordion swapping solos with a fabulous harp player, several weird instruments I don't recognize and everyone having a really good time. I hear a lot of different stuff in there, particularly what struck me as cajun sounds:



Is the guy in the background playing the world's largest cigar box guitar do you think?

Hannes Coetzeen, the teaspoonman.
We probably all heard him before but this is a recent and nice song.

Holy Shit! That's some mad stuff John! That poor drummer! Going full tilt at a million miles an hour the whole time. Could easily be spliced into a Star Trek episode with a costume change. :)

Yup, I agree, Phil.  I saw this band a couple of times around twenty years ago, first at the Vancouver Folk Festival, where their set blew everybody's doors off.  I literally took about twenty-four hours to come down from the excitement of their set.  As is apparent, they are all ultra-virtuosos.  Unfortunately, the bass player is not hot enough in the mix in the clip--he can and does play many of the super-fast, complex melodic lines in unison and harmony with the horns and accordion--how, I can't imagine.  The drummer is a monster, too.  If you listen to the clip a couple of times and just focus on him, he's changing up all the time, with tremendous dynamics.
I would love to see this band perform with dancers some time, because, hard as it is to believe, they are playing dance music.  I would love to have seen them on "American Bandstand" sometime.
All best,
Johnm

Ok, that's it it.  Zappa's not available, unfortunately, so those guys will have to play at my funeral. ;D
