Whatever Happened to that Diddy Wah Diddy?
#NowStreaming via 8tracks & Mixcloud:
… a great big mystery, and it sure is worrying me …
Diddy Wah Diddy is a wonderful place to go. Its geography is “way off the beaten track” (and a long way from Yokohama), but the Mystery Train stops there twice a day. It’s a place of no-work and no-worry, a restful place where the curbstones are like pillows. The food is even already cooked, so if you’re hungry all you need to do is wait and soon you’ill hear something hollerin’, “Eat me! Eat me! Eat me!” and a big baked chicken will come along with a knife and fork stuck in it and nobody can ever eat it all up ’cause no matter how much you eat, it just grows back. They say everyone would live in Diddy Wah Diddy, if it just wasn’t so hard to find.
Twenty-one modern rock and roll songs by Cereal Glyphs, Sweet Apple, Ty Segall, Waxahatchee, the Black Swells, Cowbell, Chain & the Gang, the New Swears, Dale Crover, and a dozen more bands who wish someone would tell them what Diddy Wah Diddy means.
Apologies to Blind Blake, B.A. Botkin, Willie Dixon and Ellas McDaniel, Yûki Kudô, Masatoshi Nagase, and Jim Jarmusch.
