Colder Than The Coldest Winter Was Cold Lyrics
by Dandy Warhols
By the end of the Great War the Dandy Warhols had progressed
Far beyond the traditional jug band sound, Zia had all but hung up
The washtub bass in favor of her new invention
Which she called the 'Synthesizer'
The Banjo was still there but now it was electrified
Through a flat microphone which Pete had wound tightly
With copper wire and called his 'Pickup'
And in turn, made it louder by what Fat Head jokingly called 'Petes Amp'
Well, the name stuck and by the time such luminaries
As Gene Vincent, Elvis Presley and B. B. King
Had heard this new Warhols sound
They were calling it 'Rock and Roll'
Dandy front man Courtney Taylor-Taylor
Would be quoted as saying
I know its only 'Rock and Roll', but I think I like it
Im Bill Curtis and youre listening to a piece of history
