It's great to see the next generation bringing Brian's music to the world. It's a little like what Brian did with Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent.

Great job!

cool to hear all the reactions!

and "Like a Virgin" was more like a 'joke' actually :p We also play some "non-brian-setzer" songs in a rockabilly-style playing, like "walk this way - Dick Brave", "Candyman - Christina Aguilera", "Buona Sera".... etc. But the "Like a Virgin" songs was covered from this song:

it's from an Austrian Polka Band :-) They play 'modern pop' numbers in a Polka style.

Nice ONE !!!!
Youve really done a nice job of getting a BSO type orchestra together. It's great that we have got bands to do this great style of music and band/orchestra, in the style that Brian gave us. I wish you all the best for the future,and hope to buy your cd's or come to one of your gigs one day. Also love the name!!! Cool Cool Cool I love you

Ha ha

Get over it Banksy

Are you trying to say you won't make it from one end of Queens Arcade to the other with a Big Shampoo T-shirt.

Imagine a night out in Jumpin Jaks wearing one?

It's Brian's vision. He's gonna be gutted that someone beat him to it. Hey guys, don't tell him about it. It's his lifes dream, we can't ruin that for him.... No one EVER suggest a skiing holiday in Austria to Brian. So far, he doesn't know Austria exists, lets kep it that way or his Polka band dream will be in ruins.

Ehmmm Walk this was was definately not by Dick Brave 'cause that rockabilly wanne be a popstar didn't write one song himself. It's first done by Aerosmith, and a few years later Aerosmith recorded the song again with Run DMC.

But on a totally different note, and this one is directed to Tommy, isn't Big Shampoo a great support act for the Stray Cats in Holland?

Correct, Walk This Way isn't from Dick Brave, But the 'arrangement' we play was taken from Dick Brave (or the idea to play the song) and we wrote the music for the horns instead of the piano.

We already got tickets for the Stray Cats in Holland, but a support act would be great Very Happy
