Happy Crimble From The House Band At Sippican Cottage

Unorganized Hancock!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my friends out there on the Intertunnel. We are friends, you know; I wouldn’t let strangers hang around my cottage like you do.

(Update: Thanks, Kathleen, for donating to the boys music fund again. Merry Christmas! Up-Update: Wow; many thanks to longtime Interfriend Ruth Anne! Up, up, and away update: Bilejones comes through. Many thanks!)

  1. It's been a while since I've had a real heart-throb crush on a musician. That lead guitar player has a fine, golden voice at which to swoon!

    Great job gentlemen! All three of you.

    Mom gets extra kudos for having a garage band not in the garage, but in the house.

  2. Excuse me but I believe the more "traditional" lyrics are:

    Deck us all with Boston Charlie,

    Walla Walla, Wash, and Kalamazoo!

    Nora's freezin' on the trolley,

    Swaller dollar cauliflower Alleygaroo!

    Don't we know archaic barrel, Lullaby Lilla Boy, Louisville Lou.

    Trolley Molly don't love Harold, Boola Boola Pensacoola Hullabaloo!

  3. That was great!!! You can do some anazing stuff with multi-track if you really work at it. Really nice lead work. Melodic, not just a bunch of licks strung together like everybody else.
    Haha are you guys on Christmas break yet???

  4. I'd say it was perfect too! The band is really developing a "sound", a "look" and a style that's uniquely Unorganized. And I love the video work too.

  5. Definitely getting a Buddy Holly vibe from the house band. Do you suppose they could do 'That'll Be the Day' and also 'American Pie'?

    I haven't popped in for awhile. All's well in NC. Best to Mrs. Cottage.

  6. Well, that did indeed kick the Christmas spirit into gear! Those guys get better by the day and the video quality as well. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas….full of fun and music and all good things!

  7. I love watching the Heir sing. He's very good and uninhibited. Some day he'll sing into a girl's ear when they dance and she'll become your daughter-in-law.

    All the 'stump the band' stuff made me remember this.
