"The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion, but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact, non-Westerners never do.”" ~~~~Samuel P. Huntington

Flashplayer in a frame:

(For those of you too young to remember the tune is a send up of an ad for Kent cigarettes, circa 1960s)


George Woldeck - vocals, guitar & bass
Danny Mazza - harmonies & drums
Norman Tischler - horns & flute
Tom Moratta - bass, piano & guitar
Randy Benson - violin
David Krauss - vocals, harmonica & autoharp
Peggy Cella - vocals & tambourine

And sometimes Spanky Mcfarland (Spanky and our Gang)

More on this late 60s, early 70s Ohio jug band here, with a little more here

There IS a MySpace page for them.

For something completely different and beautiful, a ballad to Howard Johnson, and "Roadies" everywhere...

"Me I'm just a HoJo Hobo
My Feet'll point out where I should go
Oranges and Blues are gonna have to see me through
and I'm counting on you..."
