A Musical Conversation with Saatchi and Saatchi's AdJam Band, Ampersand

Posted By Web Admin, Monday, September 25, 2017

Are you old enough to remember mosh pits? Can you tell me what a mosh was?
Mosh comes from “Nosh” – which is the Yiddish word for “eating” or “hungry”. A mosh pit resembles a traditional dance called “the hora” that is done at bar mitzvahs and jewish weddings. As the dance ends, attendees then “nosh” (eat the meal). At the Rainbow Theatre, London, on December 31, 1977, the Ramones recorded their live record “It’s Alive”. In between songs, Joey Ramone (who was Jewish) can be heard advising the crowd of rowdy punks “Ay youse guys, you gotta be careful in the nosh pit”. On the recording it sounds like “mosh pit”.

What else could the letters EDM stand for? Electro Dynamic Magnets (how do they work?)

Who ripped the holes in your jeans, you or someone in China? My dog ate my homework. And my jeans.
