Olive Crazy: All About Olives and Olive Oil
Nov 122011

My husband, Mr. Olive Crazy, shared my recent article “Bad Olives, Gaudiano Botulism Alert” on his Facebook page. His friend, Richard, wrote this comment: “There was a Punk band called “The Bad Olives” that headlined CBGB’s back in the 80’s. Their best song was ‘That’s Not No Pimento'”. Richard’s comment made me wonder about bands with the word olive in them. So, off to You Tube I went and here are some videos of songs I liked from bands named olive.

Oh yeah, I tried to find “That’s Not No Pimento,” but it was nowhere to be found. That’s probably a good thing. Thanks for the article idea, Richard.

Here is a video by the fusion band, OliVe. It is their farewell to college song and it’s pretty, darn good. OliVe is a group of Indian engineering students. The college they are singing farewell to is FISAT, the Federal Institute of Science and Technology, in Kerala, India. I wonder what they are doing now.

Here is “This Time” by the British band Olive, off their “Extra Virgin” album. The video is one of those static pictures but the song is good. They had several others, but I liked this one best.

May the sun shine through your branches.
