It keeps coming up on the Prog Synch listen suggestions list but never gets enough votes in the abstruse and complex voting proceedings, so I wrote a little sketch about that, C suggested I should post it here:
LMG Meets Jorma Kaukonen (and vice versa)C wrote:So kath will have the choice of selecting three next. You can resubmit a 'failed' band as many times as one wants so for example one of Kath's three might be Jorma
I read this and I was thinking what a shame it is that the travel restrictions means suspension of my many ongoing encounters with rock musicians. I would love to bump into Jorma Kaukonen.
I imagine it would go like this... (queue wavy dream lines like in a sitcom)...
[Scene: The Poundland shop in Penge, in the queue]
LMG (addresses customer next to him): Hey! Are you Jorma from Hot Tuna?!!
Jorma: Yes, yeah - you got me...
LMG: That's great! I can never pronounce your name - is it 'Kaka-nan'?
Jorma: No, no, you see it's...
LMG: You won't BELIEVE this - I think of you all the time! You see, there's this music website that came out of Mojo magazine, you read that, right, well some of us get together twice a week on-line and all listen to an album we've chosen and make comments about the music!
Jorma: That is sweet of you. And you all played one of my albums?
LMG: Not exactly. You are what is termed by our organiser a 'failed band or artist', meaning your name keeps coming up week in and week out, but you never get enough votes from the four of us for us to actually choose to play one of your albums. It's why I spotted you - I see your name every single week!
LMG: Yeah - you're sort of the Hillary Clinton of the Black Cat Bone Board Prog Synchronised Listen Artists Under Consideration - everyone knows who you are, but you just can't seem to get where you need to be. It WILL happen, I reckon, eventually, but do you know how many Black Sabbath albums there are?
Jorma: I know there's a bunch.
LMG: Yeah, it's tough. Nice talking to you, gotta go pay for my hand sanitizer now - Hey - now do you see the Starship guys much lately? 'We Built This City On Rock And Roll' - bet you saw some groupie action way back when THAT was in the charts, hey?
Jorma: Well, you see I wasn't actually...
LMG: Later, Ca-Ca Man! Love Ya!
