The Null Device

Last evening, I went to see a performance by country singer/novelist/all-round wacky funster Kinky Friedman, who performed along with Little Jewford, the sole surviving member of his infamous country band, the Texas Jewboys. I'm not a fan of country music (and didn't get into the support act at all), but found the whole show very amusing. Friedman performed a number of his well-known songs (Get Your Biscuits In The Oven And Your Buns In The Bed, They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus No More and Asshole from El Paso were some of the numbers), read an excerpt from one of his books and generally clowned around on stage, with Little Jewford playing the straight-man, replete with ridiculously Muppetish voice and gestures. All in all, most entertaining. I understand that he will be appearing in Melbourne again, both musically and at the writers' festival, and can recommend seeing him.
