Electric kazoo, bitches!

Just in time for Christmas, the electric kazoo!

Yes, it’s real! And yes, it’s every bit as stupid and pointless as you think. (Also, yes, that’s a little teeny, tiny 9 volt Fender amp back there).

What? Look, I’m a banjo player. You were expecting taste?

sock it to me

It looks like something that would give Wierd Al Yankovick a hard-on…….

And now I have the image of Weird Al with a hard-on. Oh God. Now he’s singing “Eat It”.

Mind bleach!

Can the electric jaw harp be far behind?

EDIT – Electric washboard? Electric washtub base?

EDIT II – Electric saw??? No, not a Skill saw, I mean an elctrified normal crosscut saw.

Heh! I posted the electric kazoo link on my Facebook account, with the message that I’m considering buying them for my grand nieces and nephews as a Christmas gift.

The immediate response from one mother:

“OH I WOULD KICK YOUR BUTT!!!!!!”

And that’s a direct cut&paste! Heh heh heh heh!!!

Thanks, Stoatie! ๐Ÿ™‚

One better. . . electrified mariachi band with electrified bagpipes. . . doing “Stairway to Heaven” with a Tejano uptempo beat. . .Yes, its El Vez. And he does Elvis. . .in Spanish.
Horrifying.

Electrifying a mariachi would be particularly pointless unless the intent was WMD.

. . . . .

I’ll get right on it.

Electrified occarina…with a wah wah bar and a sound box for distortion. Now that’s a deadly thing.

Jeff, I almost bought my nephew a real miniature drum set a couple years ago, but I figured my sister would get her revenge, so I didn’t. Now I have a noisemaker of my own, so I’m glad I didn’t, haha.

I mean if you can’t get WMD out of a mariachi band, where can you get it?

I’ve been threatening drumsets for my sister’s little boys but after “Santa” “lost” the beautiful razor-sharp pocket knives I bought them, I’ve decided that I need something easier to slip under the radar.

Hmmmm two young brothers+one electric kazoo…. but do I actually need to spend the dough?

I might be able to use that threat as blackmail material to encourage “Santa” to bring me a really good bottle of Scotch this year.

Two notes:

This strategy works great for North Korea.

Uncle Badger – sometimes it IS better to give the blackmailers what they demand. Just sayin’

I think this thread might lead to drinking…if you’re lucky.

And…wait for it…NO OCEANIA. Who does deserve an electric kazoo ensemble in its (?) family this holiday season.

Just saying…

Now men once fought the mastadon
Though it’s many millenia dead and gone
And there’s the monster crocodile
Ancient king of Egypt’s Nile
Then there are lions and jaguars
In various jungles near and far
But of all the things that scratch and bite
Of all the creatures in the night
The most dangerous -dangerous!- of them all
Is an angry woman just five feet tall…

SWease,

Do you know of, or have heard the underground jug band/tin pan alley group who recorded under the moniker of “R. Crumb and the Cheap Suit Serenaders”? Banjo, Kazoo, Dobro, Saw and various other undone instruments.

– (You might recall R.Crumb’s art work from the Dark ages in ZAP Comics, Record albums including Big Brother and the Holding Company’s “Cheap Thrills http://www.crumbproducts.com/)

Then there is the strange album “Raising Sand” put out a couple of years ago. ‘Tis an uncertain marriage of the once undisputed British vocal sex machine from “Led Zeppelin — Robert Plant and the sultry songstress and fiddle player of Neuvo-Bluegrass — Allison Krauss.

It is amazing….grows onna person. Love this rendition of “Black Dog“. Don’t think there was a dry seat left in the house when they finished this concert……WHEW!!!!

Following up on the post below:

Mayhaps, for my bretheren and sisteren across the pond…I should haves said:

“Don’t think there was a dry set of knickers left in the house when the concert was over.”

I have every single R. Crumb album except the first one (because last I checked, they hadn’t released it as a DVD. Pity. Kiwi Bump was a favorite). I *adore* that stuff. He calls it “white man ragtime.”

Don’t sit through the R. Crumb documentary, though — it’ll skeeve you out.

Swease,

Yessum, Crumb is a strange wanker. Reminds me of a very twisted, late 20th Century caricature of post-impressionist mad and flying Dutchman: Van Gogh.

I have a vinyl copy of the first album….I treat it like gold, need to get it copied onto digital.

Both brilliant artists, both twisted and, most probably, self medicating, borderline psychotics.

As for the Plant/Krauss body of work, it’s small and very colloquial. I find the blend intriguing, very sensual and sexy…in a delightful, sweet loving way. Its not sappy or cloying…like some overly sweet treacle.

Lyle’s Golden Syrup, if memory serves me…and it does:

If that makes any sense!

Thank you SW. I don’t suppose they do mail order…
