Tav Falco's Panther Burns - She's a Bad Motorcycle

I guess that Tav Falco is still pretty obscure, that's if hit counts mean anything. I've liked the guy since I first heard him. That was on a used compilation CD of Psychobilly that I picked up cheap twenty-five years ago. My! Where has the time gone?

It's not a Psychobilly act, not really. What all of the songs have in common is their unrelenting oddity, their unfailing commitment to a lack of commercial potential. That and enthusiasm, and there's a certain sincerity to it. Tav is still doing it, last time I checked, and neither of us are kids anymore. It must, therefore, be for love, and there's fun in it. I value those things.
