Once Roland (that's meeeee!) gets an idea in his head, it can be very difficult to change to a different idea - - at least, that's what my mother used to tell me. So...in the last couple of weeks, I've become addicted to Something Completely Different shows that feature three musical groups or individuals that somehow fit together - - and, yes, the operant word is "somehow".
The groups are Death Cab for Cutie, Pink Martini and Shivaree. And two of those three groups have female singers with unusual names: Shivaree's is (actually, "was" - they disbanded in 2007) Ambrosia Parsley. Death Cab for Cutie doesn't have a female singer or any women at all in the group, but Pink Martini makes up for it by having two female singers: China Forbes and Storm Large.
All three groups have unusual album titles: Death Cab for Cutie started out with You Can Play These Songs with Chords - - Pink Martini has Hang On, Little Tomato - - and Shivaree may win the Title Sweepstakes with I Oughta Give You a Shot in the Head for Making Me Live in This Dump.
Song titles? Death Cab for Cutie has Death of an Interior Decorator, Pink Martini - - The Gardens of Sampson & Beasley, Shivaree - - nothing weirder than John, 2/14.
So, as you can see, you've got an interesting evening coming up this Tuesday. Next Tuesday? Well...just imagine.
Listen to Something Completely Different every Tuesday night beginning at 7:00 pm 0n KRCB-FM Radio 91!
