Does Anyone else think that “Add New” is a strange way to phrase the create new post feature in WordPress 2.7? It took me awhile to figure it what it was referring to, but maybe I’m not into the swing of posting again yet.

Speaking of oddly titled things – Warm Wipe Stomp is a great dance number by Peg Leg Howell and His Gang – one of the best early blues bands, and one I haven’t really talked about on this site much. This track has a great energy to it and features both violin and mandolin two instrustments mostly found in country recordings – but both feel right at home on this side.

this song has been one of my favorites for years. one of the great nutball titles, for sure. The instrumentation doesn’t include mandolin, though – fiddle and two guitars, one of which is played standard, the other is played with a slide.

Robert Crumb drew a great picture of this OKeh record, decorated with pretty girls! He refers to it as “The Holy Grail”, it can be seen in his collection of drawings published in the book “The Sweeter Side of R. Crumb.”
