My Brightest Diamond, Keston Cobblers’ Club: UkeTube

Keston Cobblers’ Club are releasing their record three tracks at a time. The excellent first part is already out and the uke-heavy Pett Level suggests the second part is going to be just as good.

Also up this week a collab between Eddie Vedder and Beck, My Brightest Diamond, a Halloween-appropriate tune from Holland Greco, a slice of IZ in his band days and plenty more besides.

    Al, for anyone interested in learning a bit more about Hawaiian music and its story, Brigham Young Univ. over there has a series of videos that do a nice job.

    Starting with

    Music 102 ONLINE Module 4-1-1 Hawaii

    which introduces pre-contact music/dance, the series continues with three more in the 4-1-

    Then four in the 4-2- series and finally finishing with four in the 4-3- series. The last four deal with contemporary music.

    Videos range from about 10 to twenty minutes.

    Oh wait… I’m not in that video, but I am in the band. Ahem. Thanks for the feature Al, it’s always a thrill to be featured along side all these other fabulous musicians.

    Had a nice week off? The People demand posts! Plenty and often! Or this blog will be occupied.

    Alec: I’m doing one week on/one week off at the moment. I’m prepared to break out the tear gas and rubber bullets on anyone who has a problem with that!

    We know your selfish plan. Withhold product, increase demand, and artifically raise prices and your profits. Well, I ain’t paying one penny more than I have been.
