UkeTube: Best of 2009 So Far

Since I’ve been busy battling Mafia goons, shooting rabid dogs and swimming round Venice in hotpants I haven’t been keeping up with new videos, so I thought I’d knock together a post of my favourite uke videos of the year so far. Feel free to chime in with you faves and call me an asshat for not including them.

    Ron: The Smoke Fairies are a great band. They’ve recently been recording with Jack White.
