Saturday Matinee – Terry Miles’ Boogie Woogie, Wrap It Up, Can’t Wrap This, The Magical Piano & Christmas Of Love

Saturday, 21 December 2019

Terry Miles finds odd pubs and unusual venues with under-used pianos, then heaves bricks of boogie woogie at the heads of the unsuspecting patrons. I love it.

Wrap It Up: Bonnie Raitt, Brittany Howard, Gary Clark Jr. and Jimmie Vaughan take on the Sam & Dave soul classic. Good gawdamighty.

The only vid better than the Magical Piano is this:

Christmas Of Love (Little Isidore & The Inquisitors) is one of my favorite holiday songs, and that video makes it all the better.

Christmas is coming, and around here the presents always show up on time, so see you back here tomorrow.

The Pub of Subsidence

Crooked House_DRB 091013

Beer and ale to the left, white wine’s on your right.

The Glynne Arms in Staffordshire is better known by its nickname the Crooked House. Because of subsidence damage caused by mining, half of the pub leans heavily to one side. Apparently, it can be quite a challenge to rest a beer on the table without spilling it. According to the locals, if after leaving you turn and look at the pub and it appears perfectly normal, you can be sure you’ve overindulged at the bar.
