Happy birthday, Mark Farner

My god, this Grand Funk Railroad Hawaiian gig, absolutely slays. Total power trio bash, that approaches MC5 levels of heaviness and Proto-Punk abandon, I shit you not. There’s only two tracks on youtube, so here’s a dl link courtesy of the Guitars 101 message board. Are you ready?

I remember reading, many years ago, that Butthole Surfers guitarist, Paul Leary, named his dog, Mark Farner. How’s that for Acid Punk pedigree? Also, this Mr Limousine Driver features groovy stairwell dancing, and is a pretty awesome artifact, in general.
