A lullaby

Okay, who is this crazy lady babbling nonsense into a microphone while playing creepy guitar music punctuated by random drums and the occasional shredding incident, and why do I like it? The former question I can answer -- this is Scout Niblett, playing "Lullaby for Scout in 10 Years". The latter question... well, I have no idea, but I do.

  2. "old rumbling mustang"... yeah, there's something about the sound of the short-scale Fenders that I like too. That's why I bought the Squier Classic Vibe Duosonic last year. Scout is totally whacko, but what I like about her is that she just doesn't give a shit. She's up there to make the noise that she wants to make, not necessarily what people want to hear, and while there's some grunge there just because those old rumbling Mustangs sound suitably grungy by definition, she's decidedly... Scout.

  3. After watching that video, I have just one word: Tracy Bonham.
