Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.


• Jack Turner recordings available here.
• Update on Les Randall acetate.
• Thanks to Bob more info on Bill Harris.

De Electronica's

The Electronicas (original: De Electronica's) was a Dutch polka band. Last week I was huntin' for something different to post here and I found some tunes of this band, which hit big with "Dance Little Birdie" (in Germany, we call it "Ententanz") in 1981 or so in nearly every european country. The song was written by a Swiss composer and recorded by the modern polka group I mentioned above (and pictured above). I know, this is something very different from my usual posts 'bout down south rural music, but I gotta post it here, because this music makes me dance! Hope you like it!


Track listing:
1. Dance Little Birdie (Ententanz)
2. Dans Van De Robot (in English: The Robot's Dance)
3. De Poesjes Dans
4. Immer Lustig
5. Kietel Polka
