About a week or so ago, when I was powering down different versions of "Coming Home Baby", the Peddlers were one band that I had never followed up on, not even for a casual personal interest. When I did, I found the gem "Girlie". Blame the seventies, this one is like some nightmarish Tom Jones-Barry White hybrid, by a jazz trio. Incredibly laughable, though other then the dated lyrics there is nothing specifically shitty about the song. But those lyrics, and the delivery, are a chuckle pill. Then I found this video and was all kinds of screwed up:
When I looked further I found "Gassin'", a six minute instrumental. Kicks ass. What are these guys? This is what I know: the Peddlers are a trio, bass, drums and organ. And vocals. God, those vocals. They remind me of Ban-Lon shirts or cheap men's cologne. Zip ankle boots. There's lots more on YouTube. If you dig any of these go there. A warning though, when it comes to these guys. it's a mine field.
