Finally, on a brighter note, my band, drexel, played with
a FABULOUS musical outfit this past Friday night in
Newport, Ky. - Tornado Trousers.
Tornado Trousers is a huge outfit of guitarists,
harmonicas, drums, a jug percussionist and
backup singer, as well as a lead singer who lies on the
floor singing his darndest through a hollowed
out washing machine that has been mic'd.
They sing hilariously real songs like "Freddy
Fender Bender" and too many more to name.
They are definately on my "positive cultural developments" list.
The lead washing machine gets ready to rock and roll.
I think this picture truly exemplfies the music of
Clean, Clean harmonies.
