That was awesome Greger. Thank you. I’m glad you could hear it well enough to appreciate it. At least I hope you could.

Glad you liked it Ken, it's one of my favorites. Chip Taylor also wrote "Wild Thing". He had a long and successful career as a gambler and is John Voight's brother.
The sentiment of the song is what moves me. The world is full of them and they all need to get f*cked.

Hello Mello grin
It's been a while!

There is no need to buy el-cheapo hang drums on the internets when it is so easy to make your own steel drum at home grin What could go worng with these simple doo it yourself instructions? grin
Steel drum tuning and construction handbook

Quote
When I was sixteen, I fell in love with the sound of the steel pan, and decided that I was going to make my own. I knew they were made by hand-hammering the bottoms of surplus 55-gallon drums, and I assumed (with the brash arrogance only naive, precocious, slightly spoiled teenage boys can muster) that if it could be done by “island natives” in one of those smaller, lesser countries elsewhere in the world, it would surely be easy, for me, in my suburban backyard in Dallas, Texas, USA.

I spent much more time on this site than I care to admit, even though I have little interest in Calypso music when not compromised by gumbay smashes or whatever rum based intoxicant was the local favorite,

Rum and coke in the islands is mostly rum, as it is made there, while coke has to be imported. I ended up carrying a pregnant wife back to our room piggyback, after only one complimentary welcome drink! No wonder the kid was strange!

I was fascinated by the complexity of the steel drum organization. The complementary notes in the various scales/chords are closely associated physically on the steel drum-head to enhance favorable harmonics and discourage dissonance. If you think tuning your own piano is complicated and tedious, you should try tuning your beat out of tune steel drum with a large hammer and forge!

I heard this track last night in the car while waiting for my package to be delivered at the agreed-upon designated pick-up spot.

(Rocksus lives during the week with the boy that used to watch him while I was at work at the apartment. Because I leave now at 4:15 am for work and get back home at 5:45 pm I thought it was better for Rocksus to be with Levi during the week, and Rocksus and I spend the weekends together. This has been the schedule ever since I moved).




This track is 10 years old. I pride myself on knowing cool, hip dance tracks and I had never heard this track before. shocked


Contrarian, extraordinaire

OK you phuggerz. I dare you to listen to this thing all the way through. These folks are musical heroes of mine from a long while back. Nobody plays like this anymore:

An aside.

What’s wrong with people Loggy? This tune is a masterpiece with musicians that cannot be duplicated. I suppose everything shall fade out in the end. Good riddance!

Aint that the truth! Ditto on all three counts! Way back when,, I casually mentioned that this group was a "One Hit , Wonder/ flash in a pan, I was chided by Senator Hatrack who was a big fan of the group that was inducted into the Minnesota Rock and Roll hall of fame in 2004, a low hurdle. There was considerable agreement by other Ranters at the time, who shall remain nameless, except for Schlack who apparently introduced it to RR. The time machine is a bit ambiguous, but it was stated that never had 2 minutes of music changed the world moar, so I suspect this was the song.
I reviewed the stated criteria at the beginning of this thread that includes, music that stops you in your tracks. Few would disagree that it meets criteria! I have previously hesitated to contribute this unique performance, but being Thanksgiving, it seemed more than appropriate to share the good news and the word.
After all, in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was...
