Monday Morning Music: Gus & Fin cover The Clash’s “Complete Control”

Chris and I are gradually recovering from attending a fantastic bluegrass festival up in Vermont (we got back late last night) with our good pals Amy and Rob.  Had an amazing time listening to great music, sleeping under the stars for four nights next to a babbling river, and ogling at the gorgeous rolling green hills all around us. And, of course, there were the endless amounts of booze and food.  Will write more about it later after I get settled in.  Thanks to the front-pagers for doing a phenomenal job holding down the fort while I was gone. Here’s some semi-bluegrass from Gus & Fin to weave me back into this thing called “blogging.”

p.s. Nothing like going from hearing rushing water rolling over rocks and the feint sound of mandolins and banjos in the distance when you wake up in the morning to hearing construction workers repointing the building directly behind you to start your day.  Ahhhhhhh, it’s great to be home.

Sweet’s “Blockbuster” on ukulele

One thing’s for certain, if Gus & Fin upload a new video to YouTube, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll find it embedded here.  If it’s a cover of a cheesy (but catchy) glam-pop semi-hit from the 70s, its chances of finding its way here improve dramatically.

Wire’s “Outdoor Miner” on Ukulele

I love Wire,  I love ukulele masters Gus & Finn, I really love the album Chairs Missing (which has been on heavy rotation since I “rediscovered” it a few months ago), I love this song, and I really love Gus & Finn’s version of it.  Yes, that’s a whole lotta love.

FOR DISCUSSION IN COMMENTS: What album(s) have you “redicovered” lately?  They can either be releases you didn’t care for when they first came out or albums you just kind of lost track of with time.

“Stop the Rock” on Ukulele

Fuck politics, let’s uke. Here’s Fin Raucous, the mad ukulele-strumming Scotsman, banging out a cover of “Stop the Rock” in his shed.  This is just way too cool for school:

Here’s a video of the original (Fin’s version kicks its ass) and click here if you want to see more of Fin playing ukulele with his pal Gus.
