Thanks Will. Kobo Town are firm favourites round these parts: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=22114

I'm a sucker for old-style string band calypso. Most modern Trinidadian sounds leave me cold. Although this recent bit of summer party soca from the oddly monikered Farmer Nappy has it's charms: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFvD7oucJC4

Wilmoth Houdini was christened Frederick Wilmoth Hendricks which doesn't really roll off the tongue.....

A guy who I don't believe we've ever celebrated here but he should be in the Chas Hodges, Wee Willie Harris, Max Wall, and Ian Dury bunch of treasures.

Difficult to follow Mr Burton's rockin' little combo.

But this always puts me in a party mood:

Not sure who it is playing bass on this, but he deserves a medal.

I bloody hate cats!
I've always assumed this song to be filthy in the manner of The Dubliners' Zoological Gardens but I could be wrong.
