The Blasters Home Page I was kinda bummin' about the election an' stuff and I just randomly clicked on 'The Blasters' in iTunes and what do ya know! Sunshine! Smiles! Dancin'! Marie-Marie ! ! !
  • Love their version of Samson and Delilah.
  • Marie Marie Playing guitar on the back porch I sit in my car Damn I love that song. I once got Dave Alvin to play it solo acoustic at a Womad appearance.

  • I love the Blasters. They're probably the last band I completely fell in love with in that "gotta see all their shows" way, and seeing them at the Mudd Club over 20 years ago was one of the highlights of my life as a listener: Lee Allen took about two dozen choruses on "So Long Baby Goodbye" (one of my all-time favorite songs) and the top of my head came off (I've never been able to find it since -- why do you think I wear hats?). Thank you for this.
