Video: Friday Flashback – Vulgar Boatmen

One of the truly fogotten but essential bands the past 20 years was the Vulgar Boatmen.  Gentle, anthemic rock and roll of the best kind.  My great friend from Chicago, Randy, used to make me cassette tapes of music I needed to know, and mail them to me. Turned me on to the Bottle Rockets.   I first listened (really loud) to Uncle Tupelo on the drive to my wedding back in 1991.  And he introduced me to these guys too.  Here’s a look at the VB at their best.
