can we expect Jingle Dogs soon?
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 2:15pm Matt F:

Gonna have to wait til Xmas. And probably not then either.
  Thu. 1/23/14 2:15pm drr:

P.S.: always enjoy the math puzzlers you get to solve when commenting. This was a particularly puzzling one.
  Thu. 1/23/14 2:17pm drr:

Tell me what part of Jingle Bells has to do with Christmas. It's about sleighing, which is entirely appropriate to the season. More Clear Channel bullshit, I suppose.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 2:18pm L Ketchum Esq:

Cheerio Matt!
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 2:18pm Matt F:

The math puzzlers are 90% of the fun.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 2:19pm Matt F:

The other 10% is when the show is finally over at 4 PM!
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 2:20pm Matt F:

I say Lewis! Cheerio!
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 2:21pm pacific standard simon:

They don't have to put on a long track when they gotta go weewee -- just whip out the Gatorade bottle and there you go!

Seattle, as a matter of fact, has a big problem with full Gatorade bottles alongside the highway. I blame it on The Cramps.

The Bladder Cramps
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 2:39pm Matt F:

If they're full, that means people at least secure the caps before they toss em out the window...
  Thu. 1/23/14 2:40pm Sean B.:

Was raving 'bout Otis Spann with a friend of mine on the phone who lives in Hannibal, MO early this morning. Chuck Berry's legend is very much alive there = The Good, The Bad & The Ugly among the town folk there.I guess even among people who don't even know his music. Huhhh...IRONY.

Outa sight!

Wow, I remember seeing Artful Dodger open for the Kinks back in 1977. They were really good; them and the Kinks!

Hey Johnzie! They were from Syracuse or Rochester or sumpin right? Artful Dodger, not the Kinks...

Wow, I might bike over to the Domino Sound Record Shack which is two blocks from my house and tell them this S.E. Rogie is on the radio.

PSS- Think I gotta stick with the tried & true 2 hour formula, owing to various other commitments, some FMU-related..
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:07pm Matt F:

drr- are they the same as the label?
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:07pm pacific standard simon:

I know, and some parole-related.

Said hello...out. Thanx.
  Thu. 1/23/14 3:09pm John Funke:

Their Wikiphrenia entry mentions that the Artful Dodger boys were from Fairfax, Virginia. Anglophilia recognizes no regional boundaries.

I need some M.I.T. crack.

Hey Mo! It's me happening and it freaks me out!
  Thu. 1/23/14 3:14pm Hackensack Slim:

John F,
I saw the Kinks in 75. The openers were Cockney Rebel. I see a pattern here.
Fine show, Matt.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:14pm Uncle Michael:

Look at all the cool music I missed! It's been like this all week. Work is trying to spoil my fun.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:15pm still b/p:

If you get MIT powder instead of crack, you lay it out in smoots for snorting.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:15pm Matt F:

You also do way less jail time.

Bonus points if you can name the movie Matt just referenced.

Purty Django bday tribute, yeah-yeah.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:22pm pacific standard simon:

If there's a radio show that Django doesn't fit, I don't want to hear it.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:24pm still b/p:

That made a person want to play brushes nice and easy behind it And so does this one.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

And Charlie Christian.

- b. 1910
- Les Paul was all about Django, for one person...
  Thu. 1/23/14 3:34pm drr:

Matt f.: yes, same guy. It's a great, tiny record store that specializes in Jamaican sounds but has a little bit of everything.
  Thu. 1/23/14 3:36pm John Funke:

@H Slim, That's right it had to be November of 1975 when Artful Dodger opened for the Kinks on the "Schoolboys In Disgrace" tour at the Beacon theatre. I think it was Charlie that opened for the Kinks in '77.
  Thu. 1/23/14 3:37pm drr:

On Bayou Road, near Broad. Owner's name is also Matt.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:37pm Matt F:

drr- well I'll be goddamned. Have meant to visit every time I've been to NOLA but always sidetracked by oysters, booze, or whatever, as tends to happen down there...
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:38pm glenn:

from an interview with richard and linda thompson, pre rancorous divorce -
richard "django had everything a guitarist could want"
linda "well, except for fingers"
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...ha ha ! Django & Jimi woulda played w/ their gawdam doodlebangers though if they had to...
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...which sounds totally wrong in a @ least three ways...
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:41pm Matt F:

Speaking of Richard Thompson...
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:41pm pacific standard simon:

Wonder how long a list you could make of guitarists with missing or mangled digits? There's Jerry Garcia...
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Tony Iommi...
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:43pm glenn:

you want armless musicians? www.dekedickerson.com...
  Thu. 1/23/14 3:44pm earrie:

Isn't this song called Black Waterside?
Pretty sure this is first time I've heard it sung by a woman.
  Thu. 1/23/14 3:44pm Hackensack Slim:

Hound Dog Taylor had six fingers. Does that count?
  Thu. 1/23/14 3:45pm earrie:

Oh. Scratch that. D'oh reh, me.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:45pm pacific standard simon:

@Hackensack Slim - Yeah, cuz he cut one of 'em off with a straight razor.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:46pm pacific standard simon:

Awesome link, Glenn!
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:46pm Matt F:

Wait, so he started with seven fingers?
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:47pm glenn:

honestly, i think deke dickerson has the best website of any musician out there.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I think Hendrix' dad was born w/ a vestige of an extra finger removed @ birth...yeah quite the link glenn !
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:47pm pacific standard simon:

If you ever see the lyric sheet for the original version of this song, note that it's not spelled "for later", heh heh...
  Thu. 1/23/14 3:49pm earrie:

How's it spelled? I love this cover; I just heard for the first time recently.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:49pm still b/p:

5000 Fingers of Dr. T.
No, wait...
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:49pm glenn:

yes, it's black waterside. you know who stole it for the zeppelins.
linda thompson does a great version of it, speaking of her, but the "first" version is by anne briggs.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:49pm pacific standard simon:

Those sixth fingers were just vestigial extra pinkies, and one of them got in the way one time too many.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:51pm Matt F:

Bert Jansch did the version of Blackwaterside that Pagey stole pretty much note for note.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:53pm glenn:

ooooh. matt makes a good point. i may be wr wr wr.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:54pm glenn:

but then again, didn't he steal it for the yardbirds first, as white summer?
so he stole from himself, sorta.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:55pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks for the music, Matt.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:55pm Matt F:

True dat.
  Thu. 1/23/14 3:55pm earrie:

And Nick Drake and Donovan covered Jansch's version, too.

It goes pretty far back in the folk tradition, no?
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:57pm pacific standard simon:

Yes, we likes dis show. It's grand. Thanks, Matt.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Dylan & Paul Simon had blown thru the UK Folk scene too...we need a good long documentary about that Scene...Davy Graham was earlier than (the inestimable) Jansch (I don't mean w/ that tune specifically)...
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 3:58pm glenn:

it's one of the child ballads, i believe. it was sung a capella, but i think, (although i'm probably wrong) that anne briggs was the first to accompany it.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 4:00pm pacific standard simon:

And THIS song is the same as "I'm Your Man"!
  Thu. 1/23/14 4:00pm earrie:

I found 'traditional folk tune', 'source not enitrely known' . Maybe River Blackwater in Ireland? when I went looking.
