After a recent Song of the day featuring an American band pretending to be The Beatles, and another one featuring an American band singing about a Japanese pet, it’s time to get back to something Australian. Sort of.
Here’s “Arkansas Grass,” an Australian song by an Australian band about the American Civil War (yes, really) – complete with a video of the Australian members of that Australian band dressed up as 19th-century American soldiers (well, why not?):
Axiom – “Arkansas Grass” (1969)
No matter how schizophrenic I find all of this, I still think it’s a mighty good song. Y’all.
