Okay - partly because wipaddler started that whole darn I-pod thing, and partly because "music club" next week has a U2be theme, time to start a "post a cool YouTube music video" link - and seeing as it's Friday (<img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif">:banana<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> - maybe it can be a continual Friday thread.<br><br><br>
Only one post per player (per Friday) ...<br><br>
I'm kicking things off with a probable selection for Music Club. Don't have any CDs/DVDs by these guys - but a) They're British b) They're funny and c) They make the ukelele cool...<br><br>
The Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain, kicking off the jams with "Fly Me Off the Handel" ... I can't imagine how hard this must have been to pull off on the stage: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OP7F8P1ZtD0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OP7F8P1ZtD0</a><br><br>
Many other great clips from them. I'm partial to "Theme From Shaft"... and "Life On Mars"

Winter's Call - Badlands. The video is typical 80s cheese but the song is amazing. Jake E. Lee is just amazing in this song and Ray Cullen's (RIP) vocals are outstanding.<br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IepGiupfguM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IepGiupfguM</a><br><br>
IMO, Badlands, especially on this first album, were the most underrated band in the 80s. This album is one of the standouts of the 80s and not many heard it despite its brilliance.

Thanks.......oh, I just had to explain the concept of '80s hair bands to my 3 yo....she was asking...."why do they have long hair Daddy?"

Hard to pick my favorite Hip song but here's one from one of the coolest Canadian bands out there. If you ever get a chance to see them live, do it!<br><br><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=1P3FLz3Ky08" target="_blank">http://youtube.com/watch?v=1P3FLz3Ky08</a>

speaking of bands that are spectacular live: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FY3MNs7Zs6M" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FY3MNs7Zs6M</a><br><br>
Luminescent Orchestrii. I guess the best way to describe them is punk klezmer?

Early Max Eider/Pat Fish/Jazz Butcher Conspiracy - Angels ... Looks like the tape on the VCR ran out...<br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cj6lU1ykzsA" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cj6lU1ykzsA</a><br><br>
First exposure to the group came from a many-year ago mix tape and the song Peter Lorre. There's an amusing YT video with clips of Peter Lorre set to the music - worth checking out.<br><br>
Still haven't picked up any albums yet (either Jazz Butcher or Max Eider) - but one day - based on everything I've heard from them. Great guitar.<br><br>
Keep up the good stuff (although I'm not too fond of Punk Klezmer ...)<br><br>
Good stuff at music club this week ... most from YouTube and all over the map Funk Brothers/Me'Shell NdegeOcello, Jerry Lee Lewis/Carl Perkins, Spoon, Jose Gonzalez, Panda Bear, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Janis Joplin, Los Campesinos, the Mills Brothers, the Beatles, Joanna Newsom, Michelle Shocked, Beck,Rod Stewart/the Faces, John Hartford, Freddy King, John Lee Hooker ... but my choice for the truly bizarre (even moreso than the Luminescent Orchestra - actually, sort of a cross between them and Bjork) - check Iva Bittova & Vaclavek (the song from music club = sto let).<br><br>

Stone Temple Pilots live on David Letterman performing Wicked Garden:<br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soRQlZ98-C0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soRQlZ98-C0</a><br><br>
Wow. It gives me chills. It's hard to believe this is 14+ years ago (unless you look at Dave). The good news is STP is reuniting. I pray for a new album.

Came across this guy on my favorite radio station's import show and he's just cool.

I'll take #1 please, Oh Lord Oven Stuffer (actually - I think you mixed up bullet 1 and bullet 2 - but I'll take the '77 version w/that funky silver necklace).<br><br>
Like I said, he was a Music Club choice last night - covering McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed" with the Faces. Good stuff, if you want more classic Rod from YouTube.<br><br>

I think this needs to be a daily thread not a weekly thread <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I know it's not Friday but...<br><br>
I just got pointed to <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azB7B8hrVZY" target="_blank">this video</a> and I wanted to share it. I've seen RT perform it live a couple of times. He's still out there doin' it and still sounds great.<br><br>
If you're curious, at the time of it's manufacture the Vincent Black Lightening was the fastest production motorbike in the world. It set a new speed record (at the time) of just over 150 mph being piloted in an unorthodox manner by a motorcycle dealer (and racer) named Rollie Free at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah...<br><br><img alt="" src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/4a/Rollie_Free%2C_record_run.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

Happy Friday!<br><br>
Big in the UK - haven't heard them on the radio here yet, but definitely should get attention. Might pick up the album for DW - the three tracks I've heard are just sweepingly romantic in a chicks dig it sort of way ... <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">, espec. Mathematics (think Coldplay, David Gray, etc).<br><br>
4AM by Cherry Ghost...<br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXi6hg90LUU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXi6hg90LUU</a><br><br>

Liked that Richard Thompson clip, LRR.

Maybe a little too much saccharin for me... a little too smooth. Though there's a touch of country and the voice actually reminds me a bit of Francis Dunnery, who I like. I think the lyric's kinda depressing...<br><br><i>Oh 4am, is the time when you were mine<br>
Frozen in deepest sleep, for only I to keep<br>
Now there ain't no hiding place on earth<br>
That loneliness ain't been first</i><br><br>
Since I seem to be on a guitar binge... Watch <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYSWCtYkCG4" target="_blank">this one</a> with your eyes closed and try to guess how many instruments are in the band.

Ultra Nate - Free<br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DaZCD98Y70k" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DaZCD98Y70k</a><br><br>
This is my favorite mix of this song. I've been hearing this on a TV commercial lately so that got me thinking about it. This is also a great workout song. This mix really needs to be heard in a club or on a good stereo system with a powered sub to be fully appreciated.<br><br>
More info here: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_Nate" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_Nate</a><br><br>

You now have gone beyond Lord John the Oven Stuffer to "Lord John with excellent taste in music the Oven Stuffer". Frank can do no wrong in my book (although I haven't kept up with much since Man) - love Fearless, Tall Blonde Helicopter, and Lets Go Do What Happens though.<br><br>
Not much YouTube on him.<br><br>
