I heard this name a few times over the years and assumed he was a black rapper.
I thought the same thing about Uncle Kracker until I saw an advertisement for an Uncle Kracker show at a local county fair.
damn thats interesting
Isn’t it though? One just assumes that goofy stage names are rappers.
no its not at all interesting
Then why are you here responding?
I liked his stuff with The Housemartins the best.
I’ll see your Pizzaman video and raise you a Housemartin
I’ll see your Housemartins and go all in on a Cook eating his guitar on the stage while Ashley Slater does a rendition of Close Encounters of the Third Kind in the absolutely fabulous funk band Freak Power!
