The Voluntary Butler Scheme video for ‘Tobasco Sole’

Tobasco Sole by The Voluntary Butler Scheme (featuring the Christal Connections Line Dancers).

‘Think of The Jackson 5s I Want You Back crossed with a Mellow Gold era Black County Beck through Jim Noirs psych tinged observations, and youre not far off the poptastic sound of this boombastic track.’

The video actually reminds me of this Muskoka resort I used to work at during the summers (from ’95 through ’99). It was one of the last family owned and operated resorts in this popular vacation area north of Toronto. Unfortunately, a couple years ago, the resort closed its doors. I still have many memories of this place, often using the movie ‘Dirty Dancing’ to describe what it was like up there during the summers. Dirty Dancing, minus the young, replaced with elder women crashing courses in line dancing.

In the end, some mementos were auctioned off, wish I had met up with the guys that day. But, I did manage to grab a souvenir from a building called ‘Terrace’. A wall mounted bottle opener.
