Default Old-Time Novelty Song 'Washboard'

I've done a few jug 'n' washboard songs with 'The Masked Man' now, and I've always wanted to post one.

This is going on his next album, which is titled DARK SIDE SUITE II

>>> https://soundcloud.com/electricladyl...-v9-2015-09-10 <<<

'Washboard' features a dirty three of noisy folk instrumentation, Washboard



Kazoo



and jug bass, which in this song was a used polyethylene milk carton, something like this:



No pitches were corrected in the making of this mix. Performances are so sloppy they defy editing. Possibly a masterpiece of trash.

You can now put all this skiffle gear in your forum signature like people do with their guitars and DAWs and bewilder people for months to come :>.

That may in fact happen. There is a really cool one in the works for another jug song.

Yeah, there is a solid tune there under all the chaos And the hillbilly Noo Joisey character voice.
