Sadly, after six wild, wonderful, raucous months we will no longer be able to continue as house band for the Big Busk! burlesque night. With increased touring and workloads, we simply and unfortunately do not have enough time to continue.
But hot damn, the memories… such a wonderful and unique rock’n’roll comedia erótica variety hour we have created and experienced… but have no fear – Dirty Bourbon and burlesque come hand in hand, and there will surely be more to come…
Little A Cappella snippet Me & Big Charlie did of “My Tiny Little Friend & I”, a track from our 3rd upcoming album, Volume Two.
The song is 7 minutes in length, chronicling the adventures of a man & his tiny little friend as they go to the carnival, he looses his tiny little friend, and the man must then rescue him from the dark underbelly of the circus, fighting off gin-drunk big top mamas and monocled assassins in a dark, dark world, tiered with rabbit holes and strange colorful pathways of light, ducking bullets and hungry acid-riddled chimeras. Will they escape? Or be lost forever? The song features the Craft Brothers (Jack & Sam) and Booty Trove Brass Band. It is our mother fucking Bohemian Rhapsody. Look for it late this March 2011.
Last night while en route to the Holy Ghost compound we ran over a deer. Mind you the deer had already been struck down by some long gone assaliant, we still ran over its carcass at about 70 mph. There is now deer hair on our wheels and a new whine from the engine, particularly when going up hill.
Now, after waking to a wonderful feast of biscuits and gravy with loaded scrambeled eggs prepared by Jaime Coggins and Kim (again thank you!) we have set off safely for New Bern for our next stop on this jaunt up along the mid-Atlantic coast. Along the way, we encountered a radio station that played ‘Ghostbusters’ by Ray Parker Jr, ‘Superstitious’ by Stevie Wonder, ‘Thriller’ by Micheal Jackson, and ‘Monster Mash’ in that order. We were pleased.
Thank you to everyone who came out last night in Roanoke, we will be back soon!
