An assortment of musical homage

Skeletonbreath – the band at MySpace.

Invincible Czars perform Upon the My-O-My at YouTube.

Ty Segal performs Dropout Boogie at YouTube. Album review of Lemons at Pitchfork.

Snow Patrol include a reworked Observatory Crest in their Late Night Tales compilation. The version Snow Patrol have chosen is not the original Bluejeans and Moonbeams cut but the A Carrot Is As Close As A Rabbit Gets To A Diamond version which is prefaced by Eric Drew Feldman’s intro to Making Love To A Vampire With A Monkey On My Knee. Odd.

Bob Dylan’s album Theme Time Radio Hour, Season 2 on Ace Records includes Ice Cream For Crow

Cracker give a guest shot on their album Sunrise in the Land of Milk and Honey to Patterson Hood from the Drive-by Truckers. On Friends Hood and David Lowery name check Captain Beefheart. See the video on YouTube here.

Now when you’re on a date and you finally bring that girl home,
Put some Captain Beefheart on the stereo and you disconnect the phone
I’ll show up drunk and raving, and then I’ll pass out on the floor
Cause that’s the kind of friend that you’ve got.
