Railroad Bill - Ugly Dog Skiffle Combo

4y ago


This video was shot at Progles farmyard and filmed by Steve Gilmour. Band line up on this video is: Neil 'The Bear' Thomas, 'Lost' John Bates, 'Crystal' Clare, Jez '12 to the' Barr, Wayne Beauchamp, Martin Gilmour and Steve Gilmour. The Ugly Dog Skiffle Combo are an eccentric bunch of musicians from the UK who gather together on a regular basis to play anything that sounds good from the last 100 years on a mix of traditional and home made instruments. Their ever expanding set list covers many styles that exploit the diverse vocals that each member has to offer and the wide range of instruments they play including Tea Chest Bass, Guitar, Fiddle, Banjo, Kazoo, Double Bass, Washboard (of course), Harmonica, Mandolin and stand up drums. Everyone in the band has a say as to what is played and this has resulted in a set list taking in American Civil War and Folk Tunes, Gershwin and Cole Porter, Woodie Guthrie and Leadbelly, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, T-Rex and Queen, Kirsty MaColl and Tracy Ullman, Four Non Blondes and Green Day along with all the classic Lonnie Donegan, Chas McDevitt and Vipers songs you'd expect from a skiffle band. The common thread to all these diverse styles is the enthusiasm and humour that the band the 'full steam ahead', chaotic, entertaining skiffle sound they generate.
