This is just a little reminder of how rad Bobby Conn is.
I defy you to listen to Never Get Ahead and not smile.
In fact, you can stream most of his catalog from the Thrill Jockey Catalog Archive. (I highly recommend his surreal cover of Badfinger’s “Without You” off Lovessonnggs.
Video for (the family friendly version of) “Never Get Ahead.” Check out the dance moves.
Long live Bobby Conn. Tour Dates and video for “Vanitas” off of King For A Day after the jump.
