A little off-topic (maybe), but I couldn't resist.
A few years back I was in a rock band in Ithaca (grad students) and our name
was "Kissed By Nixon." A friend of our singer's had actually been kissed by
Nixon while a baby at some campaign rally for the 72 election. We all
thought that was icky but funny; hence the name. To close our shows (ok, we
didn't have a lot of them!) we'd play your (C Joe's) "Tricky-Dicky" jugband
style from the album "Incredible Live." The older set hooted, and we'd
explain afterwords to the undergrads just who this Tricky-Dick was and that
Yorbelinda was a place in California. Just thought you'd like to know .
ps. To open a class at Rutgers on anti-Vietnam war resistance I played "Kiss
My Ass" for, as you say, "a GI perspective."
Singin' to myslef, "Why it's tricky-dicky from Yorbelinda, hip-hip-hip hooray
. . . " Thanx for all the wonderful tunes.
