We’re back to Cool & Strange Music for Feb 13, 2016! And I’ve got some great weird stuff for you today!

First up, an oldie from 1985. It’s Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper! The name of their debut album and their real names too! They are two rock/psychobilly musical artists and this hot track was released in 1985. Blogger RYP writes of this album, “It reveals this dynamic duo at their vibrant best, putting across an instrumental conceit that weds a kind of old-timey instrumentation with a whisky-soaked, poetry-slam mentality.”… Another fave track of mine on this twisted slab of vinyl is “Jesus at McDonald’s.” Look for it… Oh, and the album credits the boys with: Skid Roper: upright washboard and other stuff; Mojo Nixon: vocals, guitar and foot.

At #2 is Hexstatic. Hexstatic is an English electronic music duo that formed in 1997. Hexstatic specializes in creating “quirky audio visual electro.” They have released two CD/DVDs so far. This stuff is VERY cool.

#2) Hexstatic – Nancy’s Boots https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wu8VEN4K83o

Are you still missing David Bowie? I am. At #1 is a delightful Bowie imitator that made this video in 2009. I think this is great! Check it out. (Sorry, but it seems that no one knows this guy’s name!)
