This is my other brand new band, the Ghost Steppers. We do old-time, early blues, jug band, mountain music: all traditional stuff, no originals. Here's our rough-and-ready take on an old favorite, originally written and recorded by the Mississippi Sheiks, that's been interpreted by many, many folks over the years. I've changed the lyrics a bit (maybe more than a bit) but that's part of the longstanding folk tradition, of course. Video of this same performance at YouTube here.
Another naughtybilly song from Courtney McClean and the Dirty Curls, this time about ... um .. a self-evident subject. [more inside]
An instrumental from Sailor Martin representing his state of mind most of the time: noisy, jug bandish, sloppy, yet unexpectedly chipper and mellow. Listen closely and you can hear Sailor Martin singing along in the background. Entry number 7 for the RPM challenge.
