The Rassoodocks: Let's Go

Someone was trying to send me messages through the ether today. I heard Billy Joel's "An Innocent Man" playing in two different establishments with an hour today. But I had already decided to choose a song by the Rassoodocks.

Here they are playing Let's Go at the Musician in Leicester earlier this year.

The band's name, of course, comes from the opening of Anthony Burgess's novel A Clockwork Orange:
There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening.
And my interest from them stems from Phil Beesley's recent guest post on Liberal England about Anthony Burgess in Leicester.

The Rassoodocks are my favourite band, but I also like [The] Heaven 17 and Yod Crewsy and the Fixers. My favourite book is 'Road Floozie'.

Yod Crewsy's band is the Dark Marbles, mate....
