You should add "Later with Jools Holland" to your TV regimen, particularly if you like music. Each episode has four to five guests who take turns playing music. And the combinations of artists are preposterous. Dizzee Rascal and The Hold Steady? DBT and Mos Def? The Streets and Alan Toussaint? Kaiser Chiefs and John Legend and Frank Black? Robert Plant and The Go! Team? Lunacy. The host provides a minimal introduction of the next artist between songs. No Q&A sessions on the couch, no promotion of tours or albums, just song after song after song. If you take my advice you'll find interesting new musicians like Seasick Steve.
You might ask "Who is Seasick Steve and why should I listen to his music?" I'll tell you why. He's got more Gheorgheness than Rambo's got bullets. By way of a non-limiting example, he has an album titled "I Started Out with Nothin and I Still Got Most of It Left." How Gheorghe is that?
Want more Gheorgheness? If Igor was about 10 years older with legitimate facial hair, a three-string guitar, and lots more musical talent, he'd be Seasick Steve. Don't believe me? Watch this (make sure you hear the first four seconds):
Total Igor/Gheorghe (Igheorghe?) move. Seasick Steve also has a one-string guitar.
And a banjo (for Dennis).
And a drum machine (for Greasetruck).
And he likes cars (for me). But he isn't a very good driver.
