late to the party -andrew bird

Clip from Bonnaroo 2006. Andrew Bird & Martin Dosh - "Simple X".

Never heard of this guy Andrew Bird till today, so raking through his stuff. Like violins, like whistling, and def' like this guy's personal style. He has a new album out, Noble Beast. Don't want to oversell here but some nice stuff.

I tend to whistle a lot, ('Carol of the Bells' for some reason) and Pops is a constant whistler. I often think of this Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne in True Grit) quote; "Damn a man who whistles."

'Late to the party' is a new segment... new finds for me that are probably old news to others.
