Late Nite FDL: Streak o’ Lean, Streak o’ Fat

Hey, Late Niters! Phoenix Woman here, holding down the Late Nite fort.

Got a weird-ass video for you to enjoy. It’s by a group of stringband musicians that collectively go by the name of "Uncle Earl", an homage to the great country/bluegrass banjo player (and all around nice guy) Earl Scruggs. The tune is an old Appalachian fiddle tune called "Streak o’ Lean, Streak o’ Fat", the singing is done in Mandarin, and the piano player is John Paul Jones. No, not that John Paul Jones. That John Paul Jones.

It is what it is, and no, you haven’t dropped any acid recently. (Not that I know of, anyway.)
