This week we are going funky on yo' ass, with Edna Welthorpe
I am reliably informed that Amy McGarrigle has got 'da' funk as well. She is also an ace singer-songwriter.
ALSO, there is a VERY IMPORTANT THING to look at [url=http://www.stopthetraffik.org/default.aspx]HERE[/url]

I believe that Edna Welthorpe have gone back to their roots and re-formed as the Shameless Hussies, just consisting of Kasey & Jai. The music should sound more like the kind of thing on that Myspace, rather than the Santana-influenced "world music" that I heard them play last. This is a very good thing.
[quote:a21b2b86b7="rentaghost"]yep i saw the name change on myspace, but i was asked to bill them as Edna Welthorpe and did so.[/quote:a21b2b86b7]I had the wrong end of the stick. Both bands are continuing, so you'll have the pleasure of the more jolly part of the package.
