    The competent drum work of Don Brewer? Oh, man!

    They closed with ‘An American Band’. Blew the roof off the place.

    I gotta slow down on the concerts. Have Billy Bragg, Dead and Co, Tedeschi Trucks and Morrissey all before Christmas. And Colin Quinn next year.

    Here’s a thread from sportsjournalists.com on Tom Petty. Lots of videos, including on page 9 a live “Breakdown” with the audience singing a large part of it.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    These Isbell covers of Petty during his recent shows in Nashville are off the charts.  You Wreck Me was nuts.

    There’s a version identical to this on PACK UP THE PLANTATION:LIVE

    That’s one of my favorite live versions of any song ever.  Just love it.

    I don’t know if anyone one likes jazz on here, but a good friend just turned me on to Kimasi Washington. Just finished his album from 2015, The Epic. A nearly 3 hour tour de force. I’m completely blown away.

    Is there a worse widely covered song than Little Red Rooster?  God I fucking hate that song.

    Chico, what’s a good place near there to meet friends?

    If you park right over there your best bet unfortunately would be in one of the places in the mall, closest walking distance. If you walk an extra five minutes or park downtown union station brewery isn’t far

    Memorial Day Mixtapes Explained continues

    2015 Disc One – Songs That Build Up America

    • The Star Spangled Banner – Jimi Hendrix/Whitney Houston (DJ Crunk El S.a.m.M.i. remix) – A combination of arguably the two most famous versions of the National Anthem, thanks to remix culture.

    • Proud Young Americans – Lee Greenwood – Lee loves the Muskmelon.

    • The Pilgrims Should Have Landed On a Bigger Rock (Plimoth’s Lament) – Rickard & Gregor – A song for everyone who’s visited Plymouth on a school field trip or other occasion and peered down at that hallowed piece of American history and thought or said, ‘That’s it?’, by old friends and Ren Faire stalwarts the duo of Rickard & Gregor.

    • Born on the 2nd of July – Barry Pedantic – A song for the tiresome ‘Well ACKSHUALLY, the Second Continental Congress adopted the resolution for independence from Great Britain on the second, not the fourth of July, 1776.’ types out there. ‘Barry’, sounding a bit like ‘very.’

    • The Iroquois Confederacy Influenced the Constitution (New York State & I know this to be so) – Aggressive Zero – Some question begging going on here, and a throwaway poster description that became a great band name.

    • Four Quarters Makes a Whole, and We’re Wholly Against Quartering (The 3rd Amendment Song) – Schoolhouse Rock! : Rarities and B Sides – Posits that there were unreleased Schoolhouse Rock! Episodes made, and enough of them to be later compiled into an album.

    • Cotton Gin? Blecch; I’d Rather Have A Fribble – Brian and The Uncles of Invention – Frank Zappa’s band was The Mothers of Invention. Eli Whitney was an inventor. Cotton gin is not a drink. A Fribble is. I think that’s how you have to look at it.

    • James K. Polk ( link )– They Might Be Giants –Actual band and song. No doubt Smilin’ Joe Hesketh approved.

    • Tubmania Overture – Harriet! The Original Broadway Cast Recording – Who’s to say in this age of Hamilton that there wouldn’t be a Harriet Tubman-centered musical?

    • Battle Hymn of the Republic – Grand Army of the Potomac Observation Balloon Corps ‘The Soaring Falcons’ Veterans & Ladies Auxiliary – This would have had to have been a very early Edison reel recording of some older Civil War veterans. And ‘Falcon’ was of course the name of Board Favorite ‘Balloon Boy’.

    • March of the Pinkertons (We Never Sleep) – Father Jones – The Pinkerton Detective Agency (motto: We Never Sleep) was often brought in as strike-breakers during disputes with unions, here they get a folk song in their honor for a change. Father Jones alludes to the, decidedly pro-labor magazine Mother Jones, a favorite of Ozzy. Probably.

    • In 50 Years Some Limey Wankers Will Steal This Song Blues – Turkeypie Jefferson – In March of 2015, drove past a roadside restaurant advertising ‘Turkey Pie’, though that would be a great blues singer name. In this case, one who can see into the future.

    • It’s Good We Didn’t Kill All The Indians (They’re Good At Working The High Steel) – Nat Plutocrat and His Spatted Fat Cats – A disproportionate number of Mohawks, Iroquois and other Native Americans worked as ironworkers constructing NYC skyscrapers from the 1930’s on.

    • Ballad of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps – Surgeon General’s Honor Cadre Band – You may think that the U.S. Surgeon General does not have an Honor Cadre. You would be wrong.

    • TVA – Seventeen Man Rural Electrification Band – Government inefficiency swells the numbers of this group well past that of the Five Man Electric Band (Signs), the Tennessee Valley Authority being a federally owned corporation set up in 1933 to assist an area particularly hard-hit by the Great Depression.

    • Battleship USS Arizona Memorial Plaque – Mike Brady (spoken word) – Dammit Bobby, you take that foolish hat off. 1,177 men died here. Show some respect.

    • Awesome at Any Speed – Corvair Summer – An inversion of Ralph Nader’s bestselling book from 1965, ‘Unsafe at Any Speed’. Corvette Summer was Mark Hamill’s first movie released after the success of the original Star Wars.

    • Theme to ‘Johnny Detective’ – Nelson Riddle & his Orchestra – You can’t tell me there wasn’t a tv show called this in the late 50’s early 60’s.

    • 16 Games – Tennessee Bertie Lincoln – A riff on Tennessee Ernie Ford’s ‘Sixteen Tons.’

    • Battle Hymn of The Network Stars – Chorus of Competitors – Not a real thing, but needs to be.

    • America ( link )- Spinal Tap – Real song, by one of England’s loudest bands.

    • I Musta Hit A Triple, ‘Cuz I’m Here On Third Base – GTown Lukey with Bert Tha Confirminator & L’il Blue Eyes featuring Chet Haze – A little hip hop number about unearned success with a Russert, a Breer, pre-Weienstein expose Ronan Farrow and actual rapper Chet Hanks.

    • NBA on CBS Theme ( link )– CBS Festival Orchestra – Real theme song, no such orchestra.

    • U.S.A. R.O.C.K. is A-O.K. for U & Me from AK to ME – Ron Catamount Muskmelon – So. Many. Capital. Letters.

    • I Like Lands That Are Great – Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga – A patriotic take on the SNL Tony Bennett Show theme. Mr. Bennett & Miss ‘Ga have, of course, collaborated in real life.

    1. Wait What – Rob Tuse and the Uncovered Angles – A tribute to all the obtuse posters out there.

    2. 33 Innings -Toad Thrubber –‘Toed the rubber’ a baseball term for pitching, 33 innings being the length of the famous Pawtucket Red Sox/Rochester Red Wings longest game in professional baseball, which took place at McCoy Stadium in April 1981.

    3. RocknReelin’ – Commander Teddy & his Retractable Dome Air Patrol – I apologize a thousand times. Cmdr. Sarandis will never apologize for loving retractable dome stadia.

    4. Warwick Oratorio – Mollusk – Everyone loves songs about Rhode Island. And a quahog is a mollusk.

    5. Spanish Key – Maurice Pompatus and the Space Cowboy Love Gangsters – A Miles Davis song. And a collection of Steve Miller personae. Miles once toured with the Steve Miller Band as an opening act, and was not impressed.

    6. Big Bottom – UMass OctubaFest Restoration Ensemble – Another Spinal Tap song, & at one time during the 1970’s there were ‘OctubaFest’ events held at UMass-Amherst. I suspect drinking was involved.

    7. I Will Caddy 4U – Pretty Damn Official – Cute little song.

    8. Cynwyd no ducted – Vlad Ducasse Reporting As Eligible –ITT suggested the name, a different poster’s kid noodling on his dad’s cell phone produced the song.

    9. Rock Me Amadeus – Land of milf & homeys – A medley of Falco’s greatest hit, by a band name suggestion from the Legacy Board days.

    10. Replevin Of A Dream – The Restatements – Some legal-type humor here. Allegedly. And an allusion to The Replacements.

    11. The Ballad of Johnny MSFTseed – The HTML Quintet – Some fun at Apple-hating Dan’s expense. Good luck waiting for HTML5.

    12. Kensil Dick – MC 5000 Gram Pigskin – Deflategate! + MC 500 Foot Jesus and we get this.

    13. Misty Mountain Foggy Breakdown Hop – Broke Dick Has-Been – Flats and Scruggs and Led Zepplin, and a Scott@PD phrase for the band name.

    14. Underground Hit – The Indie Darlings – Very meta.

    15. Down On Me – Big Brother’s Department of Health and Human Services – An actual Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company song.

    16. Don’t Do It – Nursinghome Disasterplan –Strange WEEI targeted ad by ARS gives us the group name, and a song by The Band.

    17. Sorree, You Can’t Always Get What You Want. Fact; Not Opinion – The Trolling Stones – (cough)

    18. Trampled Underfoot -The Bad Clams – More Led Zep, and another Xxx Xxxxx-inspired band.

    19. Give It To Me- Vinnie Falcone Ensemble (with Peter Wolf & TD Garden organist Ron Poster) A J. Geils Band tune, Vinnie Falcone is the bandleader Paul Anka threatens to bring in to shake up his stupid band. Where’s Joe?

    Saw the Zombies at City Winery last night. So freaking good, bunch of classics, a couple of Argent tunes. For guys in their 70s they rock.

    Awesome room too. I’ll be back
