A Big Bucket of KFC

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

West Jefferson, Ohio

New theme! Songs about food. I think I must have started collecting songs about food without even realizing it, because I have a lot.

Louis Armstrong and his Hot Seven - Struttin' With Some Barbecue

(You've no idea how irritated I am that I don't actually have a song with "chicken" in the title.)

The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Cibo Matto's "Know Your Chicken".

Oh god... I haven't seen this KFC sign design. It's an uninspired flat travesty compared to the classic style bucket sign of yesteryear:

Reccomended music: the entire Chicken Zombies LP by Thee Michelle Gun Elephant:

I suggest that you hurry over to the Echoes in the Wind blog and get yourself some of that Red Hot Chicken by Wet Willie!

Back at the Chicken Shack - Jimmy Smith

Dane said...

Thanks for the suggestion, Anne. I don't know that one.

Yeah, karswell, I'm familiar with the big bucket; they're very cool. I hadn't seen a flat bucket before, so I posted it. Someday I hope to get down to Georgia to shoot the Big Chicken.

Thanks anonymous - I did head over to Echoes, and while I didn't grab that one, I took several others. I bookmarked the blog, because it's a really good one. Thanks for the hint.

Not familiar with that one either, tina - thanks for commenting!

Hasil Adkins' Poultry in Motion is nothing but chicken songs.

Dane said...

Yeah, but it's Hasil Adkins. :D


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
