I think this is really going to annoy the Druid! He seems to be a ‘head banger’ (hopefully one who likes Quo, which I do) but what goes now under the genre of Rock n Roll is rubbish.
Real R+R was from ’56 to about ’64 at the latest with a few excursions (eg Nuttini) at times since.
The other accusation from the Druid is that musically I live in the past. Really? I shan’t bother to list all the new stuff I have introduced to G+P over the years, his comments (and from others) on those ‘finds’ speak for themselves.
I had been, until a week or so ago, unaware of Electronic Swing – but am now a convert!
Welcome to Caravan Palace (and their exceptional animations) –
with Jolie Coquine. They…
… are a French outfit of truly accomplished musicians.
Some of this seems to be (all forms of) Jazz based but the ‘Swing’ influence – linked to Charleston and others – is patently obvious. Amply demonstrated by Dramophone
complete with a cool Facel Vega!
Not only accomplished but with a very pretty singer – what more could you want.
This is their first hit, Lone Digger
Ooh la la – more please.
