Wistful Wednesday

Am feeling rather wistful today, no special reason really. The sun is shining, we had a flurry of snow for about 2 minutes yesterday, car was iced over this morning but all good now and no aftershocks that we have felt. Things should be on the up and up.

I've been fossicking about on YouTube lately, and have rediscovered a group I had forgotten about. I can't say they are a band because they aren't really a band, they are a group of Kiwi musicians who get together to play live only and as a result have varied styles whenever they get together so you can't even 'peg' them as any particular type. Here, have a listen to these two different tracks and you will see what I mean.

Laddles and jellyspoons - I give you "FLY, MY PRETTIES"....

Pretty good, and no brass section! You could imagine sitting in a groovy bar and having a grand time out with this group eh?

Now, try this one...this is for the wistful bit in me today. I think I will dedicate it to someone in the 'states who is going through a rough time at the moment. You know who you are!

Quite folksy - but I like that. AM loving the 30's style suits too. These boys got class.

Hey old friend,
What a difference in moods and music in those 2 videos. Hard to believe it's the same band, like you say...So every concert would be a total surprise, probably for the musicians as well.

"Fossicking" a new word for me. Kind of like digging for fossils while frolicing about?

I hope your bout of wisteria has passed.

Steve - the suits are pretty cool, I agree!

Louciao- hey yourself, you're right, every concert is different. I like that I think. Fossicking a new word? surely not? Here it means having a good ol' poke about, or a damn fine rummage if you will. I love the purple wisteria...(oh dear, my WV is "arsmat"..I think you call 'em trousers??) :-)
