Cliff Edwards and Buster Keaton: UkeTube

Videos this week include: a duet between Cliff ‘Ukulele Ike’ Edwards and Buster Keaton (which I think I’ve posted before but is well worth another spin), two from Liverpudlian swingers The Flamin’ Mamies, Mr B and plenty more.

If you’ve got the patience for it and tolerance for lofi recording there’s a new, 8 minute Tune-Yards song here.

And, remember, if you can’t wait two weeks between UkeTubes you can follow my video findings on UkeToob.

    Thanks for featuring Joy Ike, she is a fabulous musician, and a wonderful person. I’m loving the new Uketoob experience. Great job!

    Flamin’ Mamies are pretty awesome. That syncopated strum is something else to itself.

    Absolutely, the Flamin mamies are great! But I reckon the youngish lad with the mohawk (and the band) deserve a mention!! I thought they did a great job. And its a nice twist on the usual type of music you hear performed with the uke. Great stuff.

    Cheers! -F
