    As an additional comment it would really be quite interesting to know something about the songs development and if the video's were an after thought by a producer or something that Schneider had in mind all along. Living through the Kennedy era and the rest of the early to mid-sixties the combination really brings out some memories and emotions.
    It is catchy as all get out. I have watched it numerous times.

    And I was wondering that, too. Bob is a highly skilled visual artist and I would suspect he was involved in the video production. I kinda think he was just riffing on the "Space Force" references. And "Lord Of The Flies" has pretty strong notions connected with it from the book which made me wonder how that fit. I guess Bob was punning that a space traveler flies, with no association to the book.

    The song sounds great in headphones. He is pretty adept in the studio and, given Covid, you wonder how much was actually recorded with other musicians or was it assembled in the studio by Bob with some help. He is a very clever guy. What is mystifying to me is how he has never gotten beyond his status in Austin where he is a major figure, with pretty much a cult following elsewhere.

      • Somehow I never heard this cover of "Taxman" before until I heard a "Sample Sessions" feature on LL Cool J's "Rock the Bells" Sirius station about it last week. Apparently the bass line has been sampled in at least a half dozen well-known hip-hop songs.

        I ended up picking up his album Funny How Time Slips Away, which features this and two other Beatles covers, as well as several other originals and covers, in which he is backed by the Jimmy McGriff Orchestra. I've listened to it several times since; it is a great album!

        • Always like hearing this guy's voice; sounds like this could have been on August and Everything After:

          • Nice to see this homage to the Good Dr. last night; first live show for me since February 2020. Oh yeah, great to see Groovy again too!

            • I'm surprised no one else has brought up Riley Downing's (Deslondes) solo recording Start It Over- it's got a nice lo-fi vibe (not as much Red Dirt as just plain ol'dirt) that'd probably make for a nice road-trip soundtrack... I'm headed to Joshua Tree next week.

              • Bob Schneider sang this at his free solo show in Austin I was lucky enough to be "miracled" into last Thursday. (I was standing in the Wait List line and was given a ticket.) This video from the version off his upcoming album showed up on You Tube the next day for a nice re-visit. I love this tune.

                Seeing Bob for free and then catching Jimmie Vaughan's last set from 5 feet away the next night after a cool show by Israel Nash were the highlights of an awesome trip to Austin. (I sat down at a picnic table before the Israel Nash show and the 3 people sitting there turned out to be his mom, dad and wife! We had the nicest chat. That's how my whole trip went...magic.)

                • Jimmie Vaughan at C-Boy's in Austin.



                  Oddly enough, after Jimmie finished at 1:45, I drove myself to 6th St. to try and find a slice before calling it a night. I got caught in some traffic for a couple blocks and thought that a little odd at 2 AM. When it cleared, I drove past a bunch of cop cars with lights flashing as well as EMT wagons. Only the next day did I see there had been a mass shooting there 1/2 an hour before...

                          • 7 years old but new to me. Austin latin funk band Brownout transforms themselves into Brown Sabbath. They are touring under that name right now, with a whole show like this.

                                Nice article in the Times Picayune Friday about it. (I think I have a crush on the lady in the yellow glasses... I like how she handles her business.)
