Blimpy's Mystery Track


Seeing as there's been no new 'Spill posts today, here's one for you. 

Blimpy's Mystery Track Of The Day! 

This track should appeal to fans of music history, folk music, rocknroll, and especially punk music. 

Once the tune starts, it kinda explains itself, but whatever. 
Play Me

nine minutes suddenly seems too short, doesn't it?

This is great but he changes it a bit at the end (compared to the youtube version) when playing it in the UK!

Have you seen/heard the Fall one?
or the history of communist China
he's nuts and I'm so glad he does it..

see him live... A JOY.

I was getting there with a post for the day. If I hadn't stopped to eat cheesecake It may have been up quicker!

NO IDEA what this is, other than it sounds like something the Reduced Shakespeare Company might do if they ever attempt a history of pop.

always best to see him live..
If you can set the band up with a floor to sleep on they'll usually play a gig right near you.. so I'm told.
They played 12 Crass Songs in my local pub, it was rammed.. not my floor though, but someone must have got him there.

Excellent track - it's not Barenaked Ladies is it?

Jeffrey Lewis is very odd actually, not funny ha ha but Tracks like 'The Chelsea hotel oral sex song' are just well thought out and 'the last time I did acid I went insane' kind of when he does them live his akwardness mixed with his way with words and lack of technical awareness...
his comics are still held up and pages turned.. even though someone will have done an audio visual for him.
But not to the 'is this wrong' sense you get seeing Daniel Johnston.
