I don't exactly know how I did it, but I ended up going from Jimmy McGriff to the Trashwomen in about thirty minutes of random browsing. That should tell you what my attention span is tonight. There's no way to retrace my steps, so you get the beginning, and the unlikely end.
Once you see the Trashwomen live clip you might wonder why I bothered with it. I'll just answer that one in advance. It's because the longer I watched the video, the more I was convinced that it would be really fun to hang in their van. Like a well worn Donnas. With much simpler surf-inflected licks, with an abundance of slop. And a few years on them. Rough years. But they make mince meat with a Don & Dewey cover, and that's worth a few beers right there.
