Quit Your Job, Let's Go Bowling!
OK, here I was cruising around the Internet, looking for cool music sites when I
decided to look for a Let's Go Bowling site. For those of you who don't know,
Let's Go Bowling is a truly great ska band from Fresno, Ca. They have two albums
out (3 now), "Music to Bowl By" and "Mr. Twist", and have appeared on many, many
compilations. I found it hard to believe that I could not find many pages devoted
to what has got to be one of the smoothest bands around. Maybe I didn't look that
hard, but nonetheless, I decided to create my own page for them. Please bear in
mind that I make no claim as their biggest fan. There is probably someone
somewhere who has seen them 100 times, has 10 copies of all their records, and
knows each member personally. I don't know them, but I love their music. And
hopefully that will be enough to start with. And maybe, if this page can be found
by others and they like it, they will add their own Let's Go Bowling tales,
encounters, etc. For now, I'll to my best to keep it up and current.
I saw LGB in concert February 28th, 1997. All the bands sucked except for LGB! I
had a concert report, but I kinda lost it. The main gist of it was that despite
being billed as a SKA fest, it was more a funk fest, with a second rate Voodoo
Glow Skulls imitator thrown in for bad measure. By the time LGB took the stage,
I was ready to leave because of all of the moshing going on around me. Can't
anyone go to a live show nowdays without a mosh pit breaking out? I'm almost
willing to fork out money to see someone like Neil Diamond just to see whether
or not some nob will start moshing to Neil's greatest hits. Anyway, LGB was
great and best of all, they chided the moshing people and directed their
attention to the stage for an example of how to dance to ska.
