Harmonicas, Washboards, Fiddles & Jugs

It has been too long since we've had a jug band post here. Therefore, with thanks to the astounding collection of Lemmy Caution, I present the following, to remedy all your maladies. As Homer Simpson said, "Alcohol: the cause of and solution to all our problems." And of course, when the corn liquor is all gone, you can take out that jug by the light of a clear moon shining and blow, baby, blow! It'll cure what ails ya, and what's better, it'll oil what shakes your shimmy's brakes, if you know what I mean.

For jug band enthusiasts, there's an official society for the likes a' ya. And don't forget to drop by the Corner Jug Store and top up on supplies.
