Mighty Mighty Fuh King

Thanks to everyone who listened to or downloaded the Beatles Universe show. I’ve gotten some fantastic feedback and we had a good time. For those of you who missed out: Dave 3000, Pete Selbo and I played some wacky records but also played some live Beatles songs on Dave’s Kosmik Radiation show. Everything went well until late in our second set when my amp decided to wig out and we couldn’t finish our last two songs. Perhaps the ghosts of long dead Beatles songs were weighing in on our renditions…

If you’d like to know what we played here’s a link to the set list and if you’re really nice I’ll send you or burn you a copy of the show. I think we gathered an appropriately insane list of songs, each with its own connection to the Beatle Universe. I was especially proud to track down the single by Freddy Lennon (John’s father, who sounds a bit like his son. Or is it the other way around?) as well as featuring a song by Paul’s brother Mike McGear. Our best pick of the show was the “The King of Fuh” by the mysterious weirdo known as Brute Force whose connection to the Beatles is scarce but real. And the song is very catchy and hilarious. We looked high and low for this song as the single is rare and oddly enough I found it on itunes for 99 cents
