Rock & Roll Cup '17 - FINALS NOW ON!

Postby fange » 16 Mar 2017, 02:03

Just want to gauge if anybody/how many would be interested in taking part in a themed Cup focusing on Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, 50s R&B-type music.
Think early Elvis, Little Richard, Gene Vincent, The 5 Royales, etc., (maybe even taking in more modern stuff like Psychobilly.)

Would you join in? Pop your name below if yes.

I jus try and make time, I guess. I love the music, and it's better than reading mind-numbingly endless conspiracy threads.


Or is it.....?

I'd prefer a more open definition. Whatever fits the participant's idea of a traditional "rock and roll" song, from whatever time period.

No thanks. I could probably come up with a decent enough list, but I know I'd get even more annoyed than usual with all the choices sounding similar, and you'd all just think I was a bigger wanker than you already do, if that's possible.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Song vs song - size of groups and length of list depends on how many enter.

My initial gut reaction says yes, same as with some jump blues.

Much as though I'd like Psycho to be in I think it's best we stick to the original stuff.
