Troubled Troubadours
« on: February 23, 2014, 05:44:41 PM »
Of course one may pick bizarre musical folks from elsewhere. If one absolutely must be a cheeky monkey.
But I'd prefer to see the United Kingdoms lads and lassies.

My OP pick:
Billy Childish, lowfi god and mad genius of Thee Headcoats, etc.

what i like about this forum is the diversity of music.
Have had my ears opened to many a new styles.
Folk I am ignorant about, although i would guess I have some in my collection with out knowing.
Like "The Fleet foxes" , The Civil Wars,

OK, I changed the name of this thread. It is no longer about eccentric UK musicians alone.
Just pick weirdo musicians from anywhere.

Thanks for the Billy Childish links, I have been looking for a torrent for him for over a year.

Bea, I'm happy to hear you're into Mr. Childish. Not many folks seem to remember him or the bands he sponsored. Here's a band he sort of created: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thee_Headcoatees

And later, on her own: Holly Golightly.

I can't get YouTube links to post clips.

It's just the "BprhgIlVO6s" you put between the tags. So your link looks like this:

[youtube]BprhgIlVO6s[/youtube]

And works like this:

Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

Hope you liked the low-fi punk tune. Big Fat Elvis brings back memories for me.

I found it very hard to believe.  Not that I thought it wasn't true, it's just that my brain couldn't/wouldn't accept it.

For me it's exactly the opposite. That's the Elvis I knew first. Then I knew his movies. Then I knew the rest.
