“Nice Weather for Ducks” by Lemon Jelly

“I think one of the core values of Lemon Jelly that span through this record is that all genres of music have worth in them; it’s just that 90% of every genre is shit. Let’s face it, 90% of House music is shit, 90% of Garage, or whatever you wanna call it. Punk, Funk music is shit, and 10% is usually great. I mean the proportions vary slightly obviously, but the same is true of chart pop. 90% of chart pop is shit, but 10% of it’s fucking great.” [cite]

The band: Lemon Jelly (two Londoners)

The tune: Nice Weather for Ducks (mp3 6:08) off the 2002 album “Lost Horizons”.

I found this via unfiltered delicious. [poster]

The vocal sample gets old a lot quicker than the rest.
