Freak Out, Far Out

posted by on December 19 at 16:54 PM

While searching for photos of local band The Moondoggies for next week’s paper, I came across this classic video of Dr. Hook playing the Old Grey Whistle Test.

Holy fuck! This clip has everything: high kicks, lewd hippie spider-dancing, gratuitous instrument-swapping, a capella drum solo, fuzz-bass solo, air-boxing, cowbell supreme…

From what I hear on their page, The Moondoggies do a more reserved kind of backporch boogie, but if they draw any sort of inspiration from the above performance, then their New Year’s Eve show at the Blue Moon should be a riotous good time.

(Just noticed Zwickel posted about these guys earlier today. No matter. That Dr. Hook clip needed to brought to people’s attention.)

I don't know if that whole thing is on Youtube, but the best part is when he stops the band playing about a minute into there "hit", yelling about how no body wants to hear that song anymore.

I think this originally aired on daytime TV, meaning thousands of Swedish school kids were tuning into the view the effects of acid. cocaine, and years of booze on grown, unkept men. Kinda like Fraggle Rock with real people, and not just for rich kids.
