Peter takes his responsibilities seriously. He called in a pick or two recently which I am enjoying but you know, things have to evolve organically in the Spin and I put up what moves me for whatever reason that week.

In a recent conversation, Pete mentioned the Felice Brothers. I had heard a song or two and listening to more, I'm glad that he mentioned them. The Felice Brothers are a band from upstate New York that formed in 2006. They are made up of three Felice Brothers and their friend, Christmas, a former travelling dice player, and Farley on washboard and fiddle. Or so the story goes. Sounds good to me. Hope it does for you too.
So take a look at their video for the song, Roll on Arte:

and have a listen: MySpace (Have a listen to "Loves Me Tenderly.")

Also, a nice little snippet from NPR: Young, Broke, and American

Have a great weekend!

The lead singer's voice reminds me of Bob Dylan.

Mr. Banana says "Christmas" owes him money.

Absolutely, Weirsdo. Dead ringer.

Weirsdo and Doug - oh yes, that's for sure. But he also reminds me of another favorite of mine, John Prine.

I thought that there might be some business dealings between Christmas and Mr. Banana.
