Mystery band

Have you ever listened to some of the early stuff that famous bands have done and realized that they sound like the guys playing at the local pub?

There's talent and there's luck. I think bands need both. Maybe we all do.

Anyway, here's one of those crazy, crazy who would have guessed songs.




Mysterious Live Song

Anyone know what famous band this is? Bonus points if you can tell us the name they were playing under when this was recorded. The winner gets...ummm...nothing. But isn't it fun anyway?

Finally something I could be undisputably right on in this blog, and I don't have any effen speakers.

It sounds a lot like Elvis Costello. So I guess that's my guess, but who knows.

Gregg - That is beyond sad. Far, far beyond sad. You might have even got it right too...I had such high hopes.

Laura - That's a good guess, but it's not Elvis. I'll give a hint though...it's older than that.

I got bored...

I have no idea what band that is but your new site is freaking me out.

I'm Canadian, so it doesn't take much...

Sorry to freak out the Canadians in our midst...

The band is the High Numbers. They were named for the Mod trend of the time of wearing t-shirts with numbers printed on them. That Mod band...well, you probably know them as the Who. Strange, but true tale.
