Issa's Sunday Service, #7.5

This one is by request (see previous comments)

And since there is supposed to be some kind of LitRock connection on Issa's Sunday Service, I'm stretching the rules and counting Popa Chubby's version of Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, because he's a poet, plain and simple:

the goddess of spring
missed a few spots...
mottled mountain

translated by David Lanoue

fuck you fuck you fuck you

Imagine Popa Chubby and Roy Buchanan blowing their brains out at a little poe-dunk club
at Peace Cross here in Bladenssberg The Dixie Pig or was it The Crossroads and at the table drinking beer John Fahey, Bob Bruno, Marty Baum, Dorrie jacobs and Ed Baker..

hey man! shit,fuck,piss...

All hail rock n roll!

it will never die


this shit was not virtual!

hey you know the Hyatsville police hung Roy Buchanan in his cell!

If you were a quarterback you'd be Joe Willie Namath -- fast, accurate, and with a great sense of theatre.

Glad to oblige folks, seems you've both turned me on to "new" blues guy Popa Chubby so I owe you, big time...

Ed, congrats on the paper copy of G OO DNIGHT hitting the racks ... I'll let you know when it arrives ...
