Favoriting Merrily We Roll Along with MHLee: Playlist from January 15, 2023 Favoriting

MHLee's avatar View MHLee's profile Favoriting

Merrily We Roll Along is a mish-mash of high energy lunacy, reverence, and irreverence for forgotten pop stars, love for Saturday morning cartoons, and exploration of the side of Bandcamp where I seem to be the only one purchasing. Bringing to you the odd and the upbeat from a growing collection of pre-rock novelties, classic and neo-Vaudeville, jug bands, polka, klezmer, and more at the convenient hour of 8-9 AM EST, Merrily We Roll Along starts the day off with a little light-hearted musical tomfoolery cut with an occasional comedy sketch. It's organic, free-range, cheese with the occasional onion thrown in.

"Violent Hippies"??? What a great name for a punk band!
Avatar 11:14pm

But, being dumb musicians, they'd probably spell it wrong, "Violet Hippies."

At the start of the punk days, in 1977, we'd drive around town and when we saw a guy with super long hair, we'd shout from our cars, "Get a haricut! Bwa! Ha! Ha!

Funny thing is, I had long hair when I was a punk. I was the Joey Ramone type. NOW it’s short.
Avatar 11:34pm
Mike Rogers:

One time, long ago, I went to interview a guy from the punk band "Agression" (sic) They sang about being smart and using your brain, blah, blah...
I asked him why they spelled "Aggression" incorrectly. He started arguing with me and said, it is spelled, "Agression!" I told them it wasn't and they continued to argue with me (it was just a question fer chrissakes!) Finally they looked it up and found that the word was spelled wrong on all their records. They had a "Spinal Tap Stonehedge!" moment then... I quietly left the interview before they beat me up.
