What's Bad Can BeVery Good

I always find it interesting when musicians that are so good that they can do really bad things to music and get away with it.

There are classics like Lester Road-Hog Moran and the Cadillac Cowboys. Then there were groups such as the Portsmouth Sinfonia, which was a normal symphonic orchestra and one day everyone decided to switch instruments. Some musicians specialize in making things sound somewhat off and poorly done, like Devandra Banhart, but under it all is a slick musical thing that sounds like no other.

For your entertainment here are two Youtube of the good being bad.

That's the wonderful thing about youtube where anybody can post what they want or like. It's like a potluck buffet. And for those of us who like the weird and horrible it's like a dessert bar with sprinkles.

Now you know that Lester and the boys are really the Statler Brothers having some fun masquerading as a garage country band.

Darev, we all know you like the weird stuff.

Anon, I should have mentioned that, but the Lester album probably sold more than their normal records, and frankly it was better, though the second Lester album wasn't as good. The first was a classic, and I'm thankful the record company had the guts t release it.
