Had read about this blokey by the name of Seasick Steve who's been making quite a name fer himself among music aficionados. Born Steve Wold, this guy left home at age 14 & lived the life of a train-hopping hobo.
Busking, performing at honky tonk bars & generally just bashing the life out of his unique home made instruments (eg three-string guitar christened the Diddley Bo!), Steve came to prominence after his raucous performance on Jool's Holland New Year's Eve extravaganza a few years back.
So while you enjoy the long Raya break, me fooking urge you to check this video out of that performance. Raw, gritty & most definitely the real fooking deal. Am sorry but anyone who fails to be fooking moved by this has just got no soul . . .
ps: Selamat Hari Raya & Happy Holidays to all!
