    Thanks to whomever put me onto Samantha Fish in your last music thread. Great stuff.

    @ Reginald

    You are very welcome! Samantha Fish is indeed fab, but I did not know Marcus is not a fan of the blues and picking genres. (Banjo is cool!!)

    I wish it wasn’t so annoying to format links. I can’t ever remember how to href properly, and miss the version of pharyngula when I could just copy the html from above the text box, and then plop my link in.

    Wait, what? Huge fan of Rhiannon Giddens, Django Rheinhart, J. J. Cale, Jimi Hendrix’ early work. Albert Collins, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray and Stevie Ray are my pantheon. I have even posted (I think…?) links to Big Mama Thornton… She’s blues, right?

    I don’t like Steve Martin’s banjo playing, maybe that is what you were thinking of…?

    This is, in my opinion, amazing blues by SRV and Johnny Copeland. Huge props to Copeland who took stage right after open heart surgery, which is why he looks a bit doped up. He was not as doped up as SRV, though. Tin Pan Alley:

    I’m glad to hear it is just banjo picking that doesn’t appeal, rather than the whole genre.

    This strange mashup of Bauhaus and GoGo dancing footage is surreal and nostalgic. It’s somehow politically topical too, as GoGo dancing was a trend that went along with miniskirts and Womens Liberation.
