Banjos and Beelzebub

As all good conspiracy theorists will tell you, the Internet is secretly controlled by shadowy forces that try to dictate what you hear and what you think.

One of the most powerful of these Internet Illuminati is an entity calling itself George (its real identity can only be guessed at). At first it restricted its activities to the comment boxes of assorted music blogs, but it has recently become much more blatant in its attempts to influence. For example, it has infiltrated the Charity Chic blog to the extent that it now has a weekly column there, spewing forth foul propaganda about assorted American states.

It pains me to report that I have now been targeted by The George, which has sent me a copy of a compilation album called "Hillbillies in Hell: Country Music's Tormented Testament (1952-1974)". I always thought that if this day came I would be strong enough to resist. Unfortunately I am too weak-willed to do so, and the music is too excellent not to share. Here are a few of the highlights.

"Yodelling Heart" - Selwyn Cox

"Wrestlin' With Satan" - Zero Jones

"Which Way You Going?" - Jerry Jericho



  1. Another victim of the sinister George
    You have my sympathies

  2. Strangely enough, having played a couple of pop songs yesterday I was wondering about dong a piece for another blog........
