296: “When The Levee Breaks” and “Jungle Boogie” by Dread Zeppelin

Dread Zeppelin. Professional band band photo.In addition to being the single best reggae Led Zeppelin cover band with an Elvis-impersonator frontman ever, Dread Zeppelin invented the emergency poncho, which has served millions in times of emergencies requiring ponchos.

Dread Zeppelin is also the physical manifestation of a mathematical theorem striving to prove that life outside your head is even weirder than life inside your own head no matter how weird your head is. Look your ears in the eye and consider.

These guys were a great show way back in the 90’s when I was young enough to eat fried chicken right before strenuous exercise, and they’re still touring now… as though they haven’t eaten any fried chicken at all. Mathematical.

Enjoy. Especially if you’ve never Dread Zeppelin’d.

130: “Photosynthesis” by Sean Lennon

Who's Your Daddy?There has been a bunch of press recently about John Lennon’s death and birth anniversaries.

Well, John Lennon had two sons who make some music of their own.  Sean Lennon, only son of John and Yoko Ono, made some really interesting music in the late 90’s that I’ve been revisiting lately.  He’s still doing his thing if you want to check that out.

Here’s “Photosynthesis” from Into The Sun (1998) by Sean Lennon.

It is worth noting that Lennon plays every instrument on this track… with his feet.  He knew there were tall expectations.

Enjoy.
