...hi Ricochetrider, well, after listening, I think there are tons of garage bands doing the same or similar stuff; even better, but without any success. The voice and lyrics are just not remarkable and without guts; the drums are less than basic; only two chords without anything.The only embellishment and is what works here, are the clapping hands and the distorted vibrato.

I'm a lucky guy with 1000's of albums/45's laying around and even a jukebox here and there if I want to hear a 3 minute single while brushing my teeth....But I had such a great time the other night when my daughter convinced me to go to the Gorillaz concert. So this is what I just listened to...

I like it. Listen to Lucky Penny, the out of phase guitar tone is awesome, I like the xylophone & pretty sure that's also a Farfisa. If you go deeper into you tube, theres an interview with Mr McPherson where he talks about the custom guitar he uses in Lucky Penny. The keyboard guy plays guitar and xylophone, and the other guitar player plays sax as well. I like the arty approach to the videos, and the overall vibe.

That music just feels good to me, and I would go see those guys in a heart beat- but we'll be out of the country in the next couple weeks when he comes up the East Coast! frown

...so I am listening this other tune; and like you say is better. Still a basic old type of song but good tone, better embellishments, better drum breaks; yes, the mood of the clips is nice. May be is because you are so accustomed to the big leagues and I am still into the "alley" scene. I played and worked in festivals with all these types of bands.
Man, indeed you have a great job; moving from country to country...that really fit me, but no luck to meet the right person to enter that field.

Well I actually only work from town to town, all country-to-country travel is strictly for fun. My work, which I am VERY lucky to enjoy quite a lot, is a good gig, if not exhausting and all consuming.
I look forward to a couple weeks in England on the cold & wet west coast, hanging out with friends, walking around, and taking photos. And drinking some English Ales while Im at it!

Getting a bit further into this guy's music, it does seem like he could on one hand be slotted into the faux rockabilly scene, but I think he has his heart in it, and there are elements of all manner of things in at least some of his work. If you listen to him talking about his guitar, you can see he has some depth of knowledge about other guitar players and their history within the realm of what he is doing.

I think there is some art to his approach, vaguely sort of in the same vein as Jack White. Nowhere near the same level of intensity, musically, but more in the way the videos look, set up, style, etc.

Yes, my being subjected to the "big leagues" does has its ups ad downs, but that's probably why I find this refreshing, because it's not going to fill a 20,000 seat arena, and the band still seems to care about what they are doing. Although, Guns N Roses seemed to have their hearts in it last night, for all that is worth. 20,000 rabid, avid fans going bananas in the joint sure helped the vibe. laughing Funny but I had truss spot gigs for Halsey (yuk), Faith Hill & Tim McGraw (YUK) and finally Guns N Roses, all the past week. So I had to slog thru piles of garbage to get to the good stuff! grin

I guess my point is that the Big Leagues aren't all that, IMO - but a guy like JD Mcpherson, while not terribly original, keeps it real.
Unlike GnR, Im pretty sure Mr McPherson does NOT use tele-prompters so he can remember the words to his songs! crazy

cheers brother!
have a great day.

what is this?

there were no music videos when i first listened to paranoid back in, what, 1971?

ozzie osbourne was unplugged back then.

those are WW2 B17s in that first image. it would be more appropriate to show modern US drones killing kids in yemen.

But the only people to see them are dead, just after they see the drone.

That's why he had so much trouble finding drummers. Terry Bozio was the only one who could play "Black Page." Ruth Underwood is a goddess of percussion!
BTW: I figured out Zappa's guitar solos. He was a drummer before he picked up a guitar. His solos are filled with 13-stroke open rolls, played on guitar.
