Been drinking a lot of beer this summer. Most of it on the radio. Mmm mm mm, that's so nice I want to watch beer movies. Let's see what youtube can contribute.
Viv Stanshall's ad for Ruddles Real Ale
The legendary Bonzo Dogger swallows the worm and dives down his own peculiar rabbit hole in order to shill for swill.
Yellow Magic Orchestra's ad for Kirin Lager
Or is it Kirin Lager's ad for Yellow Magic Orchestra? The tables turn when they start flashing snapshots of the Band As Young Men.
Gilberto Gil Approves of FREE BEER
The co-cap'n of Tropicalia and Brazil's current Minister of Culture shouts out not just free beer, but GOOD beer!
Live! Nude! Fermentation!
Like it says.
(Thanks Brian Turner for the YMO and Jeff Moore for the flickr set!)
Next week, more zymurgological ephemera -- Beer songs!! I'd love to hear your suggestions in the comment section of this post.
Meanwhile, at 2:40 this afternoon (and every Friday thoughout the Summer 2007 WFMU air schedule), I'll be drinking and talking about beer on the air with a bunch of pals. Today we'll be sampling suds provided by Listener / Volunteers Therese and Colleen. I'm podcasting this weekly 20 minute debauch (and even occasionally the after party), feel free to subscribe here. There's even a flickr set devoted to the afterparty. Past beer posts here and here. Past beer-obsessed radio shows via all this.
