Song of the day: Weird Mob – "School For Akters"

April 17, 2013

I received an email from the lovely* Bekah (Hi, Bekah!), an American person who alerted me to the existence of a band called Weird Mob.

My favourite part of the email – and the bit that made me sit up and say to myself “I’m definitely interested in hearing this” – was in the description of the band:

“…the melodic synth-filled pop creation of married librarians Dave Gibson and Renee Reighart (Library of Congress and University of Virginia Fine Arts Library, respectively)…”

Now there’s a sentence you don’t see too often in an email.

Anyway, Bekah pointed me in the direction of two Weird Mob songs. I liked one of them, but not the other.

This is the one I liked:

Weird Mob – “School For Akters” (2013)

I thought that was cute.

Thanks, Bekah, for letting me know about two musical librarians. I hope there are more.


(*I’ve never met Bekah, but I’m assuming she’s lovely.)
