Episode Summary

Man Man
Right at the end of the ABC newspiece about the black cab sessions, Cynthia, the consummate, bubbly news anchor woman, seamlessly segued into the next section with the throwaway line: "pianists need not apply". Pianists. need. not. apply. As soon as she uttered them, those four words echoed around the marble corridors of Black Cab Sessions HQ. Cynthia had laid down the gauntlet. And we gamely took her words as a challenge. So meet Man Man. A band we love from Philly who are pretty special live and whose music is driven along by the piano playing - yes Cynthia, the piano playing - of lead singer Honus Honus. So with three band members and a cab-wide keyboard squeezed in the back, and the mighty power being sourced from the tiny acorn of the dashboard cigarette lighter, they launched - with a slightly dangerous look in their eye - into a very raucous and weirdly joyful rendition of rabbit habits tune 'Doo Right'. And the piano sounds a-ok. So Cynthia, this one's for you.moreless
