Aussie Spoon lady goes viral
A talented Aussie spoon playing guru has taken the world by storm with her take on the smash hit Lonely Boy by the Black Keys.
On her website Deb 'Spoons' Perry writes she learnt basic percussion while at school, played in bands in Perth and then around the country.
"After being taught the spoons, she has developed her own entertaining and energetic approach when performing, playing on many parts of her body" the site says and we certainly agree!
Her version on Lonely Boy has reached almost 1-Million views on Youtube in less than a month!
Check out Deb 'Spoons' Perry rock 'n' rolling rendition here:
Neil is one of Australia’s most experienced journalists with success in newspapers, radio and television. He was one of the youngest editors of a daily metropolitan newspaper, The Herald. Enter Neil's highlights page for videos. replays and news.
Try playing spoons in different ways through the water. A slow, steady retrieval will cause a spoon to wobble gently through the water; while a fast, erratic retrieval will demand that the spoon be noticed, although such a brazen display of wanting to be eaten may scare off more timid trout and bass. And size also matters.plumbing supplies Tuesday 3 July, 2012 - 3:55 PM
