The Twisters - Why Don´t Somebody (live 1980)

Uploaded by makikoti47

Late 1970's and early 1980's there was this big rockabilly music boom in Finland (like in many parts of Europe). These youngsters from Järvenpää, Southern Finland did only one c-cassette album called Rockabilly Special before faded into obscurity. This is their version of Crazy Cavan's tune Why Don't Somebody recorded live by the Finnish national tv at the market place of Järvenpää, summer 1980. Yeah, the crowd ain't exactly going crazy etc. etc. but damn, I sure like the way these guys play.

Here's some mighty powerful roots stuff from the land of the midnight bum. Faarao (Pharaoh) Pirttikangas & his group Kakspäinen Narttu from Finland with their primitively mesmerizing version of blues man Junior Wells song Two Headed Woman which also happens to be the title track of their latest album Kakspäinen Narttu ("two headed bitch" in english...Man, all this dualism makes me split hairs (heads)). Check all Faarao's records out. Cool sounds!
