Musical Interlude – Mighty Mighty Bosstones

7 Apr

Not a lot of film reviews done lately, but I’m working on one for Noah Baumbach’s character-driven Frances Ha. I was pleasantly surprised by that one !

In the meantime, please enjoy this throwback from my high school days – The Mighty Mighty Bosstones’ super-jaunty Knock on Wood. 

 

Back in the day, a friend of mine knew Dicky Barrett. She’d go to all the shows in town and see him there, and they’d hang out. I never went to many ska shows but I do miss that sound. Now and then I need to throw some on and skank around my house when I’m doing some housecleaning.

FUN FACT – I can’t remember where I heard this but the song is supposed to be about taking responsibility for your actions by getting tested for AIDS. Feels like one of those VH-1 Pop-Up video facts to me, but maybe I also made it up.

Anyway, enjoy, and have a great weekend!

    I wasn’t really a fan of their music at the time, but I’ve always loved saying their name!

    I saw these guys live once, at the Buzz Bake Sale. (Remember the Buzz? Heh.)

    They were pretty good live.

      Gasp! The BUZZ! And before it was the buzz it was – Zrock? Something?

      But yeah I remember those black and white Buzz bumper stickers all over South Florida. And seeing them in Orlando was such a thrill, a little callback to home! Ha!

... but what do YOU think?
