The Skipper had a so-called 'idea'. It did not work. As he does frequently, he threw his Loyal Listeners a curve ball, and he made this one a Dog's Lunch if there ever was one.
This should be titled The AC/DC Show; 'cause that's just what He Did! He played nothin' but AC/DC for almost the Whole Show. Some heard a Lot; like incessantly. Some ... not so much.
This .. was a helluva show and it was literally .. Heard Round The World! In real time no less. One of the Myndjack Nation, Lady Wah Wah, who runs a "deli" in Yarawonga, Victoria, Down Undah' piped the dang thing to her patrons there in the Nosh Deli and she said they were "Dancin' In The Street"!
The Skipper goes back to his Young Dude days and pulls out some Sons Of Champlin and Buddy Miles Express to put some glide in yer' stride to get this thing started. Then among others he lays down some Alex Nester , Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and a couple killer tracks from The London Soul a badass new band from Brooklyn, NY that reminds the Skipper of bands like Humble Pie.
The Skipper thinks that because he listened to, took to heart then lived, Bob Dylan's Everybody Must Get Stoned song back in the day, that he has some notion as to what constitutes Folk Music.
Knowing the auld bugger as I do (being his steward an' all) I don't think he knows what constitutes much o'anything! Well, the scurrilous Dawg surprised me on this show. No... not with his knowledge o'Folk Music; the book of what HE knows would fit on a Postit Note. But he did, however, play some dang fine music tonight.
We heard Mumford & Sons, Avett Bros., Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside, The Old Crow Medicine Show and other fine arse music. He even threw in a jewel from Doc Watson! I might quibble over some o'what he thinks is Folk ... but hey! Take a listen, decide for yer'self.
That's right Scrubs! You'll hear some bit'o Tango music on this show. Some RRRrrrrhumba too. Yeah.. that stuff you heard in dance class when ya' was in school. Waitaminute.. they don't Teach you keelhaulers civilized dancin' in school no mo' do they? They just go with whatever kinda' "bi-ped havin' a seizure" bilge you lubbers come up with don't they?
Has winter beat ya' down Skippy? Did the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue just not quite kickstart yer' heart like ya' thought it would? Is yer' dog not gettin' enough cheese? Well then .. Rise Up ya' disheartened bugger and GO COASTAL!
