Bam a Lam

I won't bore you with the chain of links I followed that led me to this video ... suffice to say that the mild pleasure (at best) that I might have taken in the music of Black Oak Arkansas will heretofore be qualified by the memory of what they look like on Youtube. But then I found this video of a cover of a song by Ram Jam which is, I have just learned, a cover of a Leadbelly song.

I think you'll agree that it's the electronic processing that makes the Spiderbait version. The video actually has a pretty great concept, though if I were anybody but the drummer, I think I might have been a little irritated.
