ahh yes, MONTANA, clearly demonstrating an affinity with all those anti-federalist militia types who seem to congregate in that wild region - wanted to reside there myself at one point. <br>lord - it would be quicker if we would list FZ tunes NOT of a C&W nature ! cant think of any right now.<br><br>mungo

mr. the d ! - i was wanting to have a word with you actually. all to do with this interview i was reading ( forget wich one ) where frank was talking about his vocal style and also about bulgarian traditional music where the singing is 1/2 singing 1/2 talking, if you know what i mean - i forget the technical term for this technique. i thought of you cause of the 3 mustaphas 3. any thoughts on this ? <br><br>this is strange as i just by chance saw on FAQ , FRANKS FAV COMPOSERS  that some guy called  - peerdiem - noted that frank liked bulgarian music - very weird as i almost never look at FAQ. <br><br>mungo

yes lumpy one  - i didnt know they where still going untill i saw jimmi posting some of their cd sleeves on one of the what-yer-listening-to threads - they are on RYKO so check their website for their latest stuff and a few mp3 downloads. i remember em from the radio back in 1987 or something - the BBC did some sessions of em and played alot of their stuff - it was crazy stuff back then but seems to have mellowed a bit. great stuff - what you know of em lumpy ? - please tell all .<br><br>mungo

Speaking of spaghetti westerns and LumpyGravy, how 'bout the first 1:38 of Lumpy Gravy? <br>Totally a Spaghetti Western soundtrack waiting to happen. I can picture Clint Eastwood and a bunch of midget banditos galloping around with random close up shots of their dirty, sweaty, squinty-eyed, determined faces as the opening credits roll <br><br>[move][font=Playbill]The Son Of The Return Of The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly[/font][/move]
