Tuba, Guitar, a 1922 marching bass drum and 2 Tap Dancers

" Choke on my Hummer farts you miniscule, fuel-efficient pods of inferiority."

Can these ingredients add up to a band? It appears so. I am still trying to figure out just how much I like this but I offer it up to you so that you can decide as well. The band's name is The Born Again Floozies from Indianapolis, Indiana (go Colts!) and they define themselves as a Gypsy sidewalk trio. There is no doubt that this sound is really quite unique and a little out there. The vocals in the song Floozy Revival/Live it Up Now! (brought to you by Culpepper Log) consists of excerpts from a vintage late 60s Jimmy Swaggart sermon. And it works, in my mind...almost. I do think there is something missing from this particular song...it seems to be continually on the edge of a groove, but them stumbles for me.

Better though, is this song found on the latest Paste Sampler CD. The name of the song is I Used To Play The Euphonium and right from the start you know you are in for something unique and special. Whistles, drums, the tap dancer kicking off and a euphonium. This track is only up for the next 7 days so get it fast.

Still not tempted? Try this cover of the AC/DC song Highway to Hell. I know that will get at least one person's attention.

WOW... Uh... not quite sure what to say about these guys...

They sound like a bunch of guys who are bitter that high school is over for them...

not sure if they'll make the mix...need to decide if "retired" is on the money on this one...i go back and forth on liking it. maybe i just miss biology class.

DUDE,
I am not sure if I like this or not.
I listened to Highway to Hell...and....I just don't know.
Of course you wrote nearly the same thing.....

Yeah, I think they are totally like weirdo guys that miss high school.

I mean I think they are making fun of Jimmy Swaggart! That is wrong. He might have said those tings but he was good.

And in the song about the high school band, he says he cut a frog just because hee didn't play a uephonium-- why would you do that? That's just mean and why don't you just go back to grade school if you don't like frogs or anythin.

And the Highway to Hell totally doesn't sound anything like ac/dc. If you're going to record another groups song, you have to make it sound just like them or its just stupidd.
