oldies week: SUNDAY

Johnny Washup and His Long Legs is a largely unknown hokum trio. Johnny, whose real name remains dubious, sadly passed away in 1937. This video was created in his honour, with music by Laura Schuster (motel aurora) and Johnny Keytar, for the Boijmans van Beuningen Museum’s 2012 Art Rocks! competition. It was inspired by Salvador DalĂ­’s “White Aphrodisiac Telephone” sculpture of 1936. Tap dance recording by Peter de Loor.
