Buddy Wasisname
and the Other Fellers

In the early 1990s, I had the joy of visiting St. Johns, Newfoundland. While I was there, I had at least as much joy, hearing Buddy Wasisname & the Other Fellers. I immediately bought their album, Flatout, which appears to be difficult to come by these days, which is both unfortunate and understandable. I hope they plan a re-issue soon.

I love the songs, "Sarah", "Dear Mr. Ford", and their all-time classic, with which every Canadian can identify, "Peein' in the Snow" [Gazin' down the hole; it's the only thing that makes me feel like spring]. I was pleased to learn a few years ago that one of my friends and his sons also enjoy the music of Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers.

Image my joy, yesterday, when I was reminded that Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers will be in London, Ontario, tonight. I immediately ordered a pair of tickets and invited my son, David Ricardo Palmer, to join me. Here are a couple of links for and whence you can purchase copies of their albums.

Update: The concert was better than I had hoped! See my review here.
