Monday music: "Loch Lomond," Off Kilter

I absolutely stumbled onto this, doing (believe it or not) a bit of double-checking for The World-Tilting Gospel. A kilt-wearing Celtic rock group. What's not to love?

I like the way they hide the drummer behind a curtain!

… or is that just a modesty curtain?

Saw these guys perform live at Epcot. It was very cool.

Wendy said...

That was a really catchy tune! They're pretty good.

(and this is my first Internet experience on my new iPhone...woohoo! :)

Haha! :)
The scrollball on my old blackberry was getting tempermental (ex: going the opposite way I was scrolling) so I think at the moment I'm just overwhelmed by a phone that actually works....but then there's the apps, oh my!

Dear wife informs me I have heard their music: her late brother had someone of their CDs.

But I did stumble on this video, since I was Googling "off kilter" for something from my book.

So there.

Wendy said...

Oh, how is your book going?? Did your readers provide good feedback??

DJP said...

Well, that book is the one coming from Kregel, The World-Tilting Gospel. I got back the editor's notes, worked through the whole manuscript, and am just about ready to send it back. Just needed to make double-sure I was using a phrase correctly.

The other one, I've only gotten one feedback back. It was positive, encouraging. Waiting on the others.

Wendy said...

Well, that's great! I can't wait for them!

In the future, when I think my work is hard, I can remember DJP channeling Superman and writing two books at once.

Well, if the drummer is wearing a kilt (and sitting down, like most drummers do), it's probably a good thing he is hidden behind the screen, given what's reported that Scotsmen wear (or don't) underneath their kilts.

But definitely an interesting arrangement of the song.

DJP said...

Deft point.

Mike Westfall said...

You mean, daft.

or should it be draft?

Halcyon said...

Perhaps phat?

Drafty.

I'm curious how you "stumbled" upon this in your research. Did you perhaps mistype your Google inquiry as "world kilting gospel"?

(word ver: comede)

DJP said...

LOL

Yeah, that's the Celtic edition!

No, it was that I used the phrase "off-kilter," and suddenly it sounded odd to me. I wanted to be sure I was using it correctly.

Then boom! Cool band!
