Wow. These guys swing!

"Bright Lights, Thicker Glasses" YouTube channel

These guys know their ways around their instruments (and a song), are having fun doing it, and consequently so is anyone watching. On one video they call themselves, "Acoustic trio of old guys with attitude." John Palmer (guitar, snare drum), Michael Dunn (guitar, dobro, kora), and Brian Samuels (cello) (and all on vocals, esp. John Palmer) of Vancouver, British Columbia (I believe).

Of special note: I was wondering why the guitarist, John Palmer, was fretting mostly with his thumb and what tuning he's using to do it... then I realized he's missing most of his four fingers on that hand!

Thanks very much to the Facebook friend who posted their "Cambrian Explosion." This YouTube channel is about the sum total of their online presence.

Thanks. They're delightful.

Gotta run, but I thought (re: 'Cambrian Explosion') that Pikaia and them were Devonian. Mt Wapta and all that.

I still don't know if I believe that there ever was an invertebrate shaped like a little vacuum cleaner, Stephen Jay Gould or not.
