Christmas With The Devil

Devil Dick from The Devil's Music blog asked me to help him to understand the Holy Modal Rounders. I promised him a couple of downloads and, finally, here they are. Technical difficulties don'tchaknow. Merry Christmas Devil Dick. I'll be putting up my sparkly, black Elvis tree in a week or two.

Half A MInd- Holy Modal Rounders (Buy)

Dame Fortune- Holy Modal Rounders (Buy)

Here's a special holiday bonus. I've heard some of the New Weird America bands. Mostly, they don't work for me. Drakkar Sauna from Lawrence, Kansas comes closest to capturing the Rounders feel.

thanks for these tunes- although i think drakkar sounds more like the fugs.

Your driver said...

Stampfel and Weber of the Rounders were fugs for a while.

Devil Dick said...

Devil Dick said...

The voice in Half a Mind reminds me of someone else... due to only having half a mind I can't put my finger on the name.

When I hit down time it always takes me forever to catch up on the music spots. I save them like secret candy for my quiet time.

I liked Dame Fortune.
