(NYPost)   The New York City of old is well and truly dead, as there is only one remaining street-corner doo-wop group - and it sucks. And has an accordion player, to add insult to auditory injury   (nypost.com) divider line 37

This is a TMBG reference, isn't it.

Titty-pinches and bleeding nipples are part of the job for a female accordionist.

I was going to say there was a group in the subway, but this is them.

Dion is still badass, though.

I know the first thing that comes to my mind when seeking peace and quiet is "I'm going to move into an apartment on Bleeker Street. That's the ticket."

So many damn buskers in the Toronto subway system and on the street above. Don't know about a doo-wop group, though. Lot of violin players for some reason.

As long as I can still stop at a red light and get a handjob from the homeless guy who spits on my windshield and wipes it off with a newspaper, New York's OK in my book.

Farking beggars, they need a doo-wop vigilante to get medieval on the bastages

Adding an accordionist to your doo-wop group...that's so Portland, not NYC!

accordions are awesome and if you don't like them you should feel bad.

Get a real job you lazy free loaders!

If they can't sing to begin with then I understand the complaint. Then again you were stupid enough to want to live in NYC and expect peace and quiet.

Is there a music school nearby?

So...move to New New York.

I've seen a doo-wop group going around in the subways. So... maybe they just moved?

Wait, that was a barbershop quartet. NM. How about the Yellow Jacket Boys.

The definition of a gentleman is someone who knows how to play the accordion but doesn't.

Good acoustics, I'd imagine.

You're really missing out by not having him spit on your cock and wipe it off with a newspaper, too.

I wrote a Haiku:

Windshield, hand, or cock.
Homeless and spitting robots,
It's all good to me

I have grown to appreciate the use of a busket. Amazing what they can do.

That there hasn't been a widespread movement to recall this guy just shows what pussies Noo Yawkers have become.

No, they just see the likely successors and shudder. The older New Yorkers think back to the Dinkins/Koch/Beame years.

And somewhere, Al Sharpton is polishing his medallion and taking his old track suit in for alterations.

Everybody accustomed to having a snout or two in the trough will want to hop on the gravy train (he said, mixing metaphors or something), because it'll be a short run between Bloomberg leaving and Preet Bharara running in 2017.

I think it's more resignation than pussification. We fought and they ran roughshod over us. But you are right, there should have been a recall.

You know what? Sharpton is looking good right now. Hell, the old corrupt bosses are looking good right now. At least they gave the poor kids new shoes each year.

I seen these guys singing on the subway more then a few times, they are good but annoying. If you don't tip them they surround you and sing. Never seen the girl with them though, normally they have 2 or 3 other guys singing with them.

This is a true tragedy. NYC has had streetcorner doo wop groups for over 300 years. It has truly lost its identity now.

Best doo-wop song by an accordionist, ever.

You remember the Del-VanStuyvesants too? And the Schuyler-Tones? They were great.
