Turkey Day Album Suggestions From Metal Odyssey

Happy Thanksgiving America! It’s been a weird 2011 thus far for weather, that is for certain. (I just had to blurt that out). There are many reasons for my being thankful this Thanksgiving. My family, friends, Metal buddies (worldwide) and of course all the bands I listen to and write about I give thanks for. I’ve decided to compile a list of ten “listening suggestions” for anyone who is in need of an album title with “turkey” in it for Thanksgiving.

No, this is not a list of Heavy Metal albums, instead these are diverse titles that I discovered and at times rediscovered while researching for this post. Honestly, how many Heavy Metal albums are out there with the word “turkey” in the title anyways? Hopefully you may find these suggestions beneficial for your turkey festivities. Without further delay, I am very happy to present to you, the following ten turkey album suggestions for your ears:

Terry Lieberstein – Turkey Burps And T-Ball

I dunno. I found this album cover and it looks kinda fun. Um, it may be geared towards toddlers I would imagine. Then again, any politician out there should find this as a listening adventure for it’s slightly above their intellect.

John Lee Hooker Jr. – Live In Istanbul Turkey

A multi-grammy nominee and son of the legendary/late John Lee Hooker. This album looks pretty cool. I don’t own it nor have I listened to it… and I’m sure I’ll track it down eventually.

100 Miles Per Hour – Backsliding Turkey Kuts

I have no idea. If someone does know, please share your knowledge on this mystery album. If you like to experience Turkey Day in the fast lane, this seems to be a logical choice.

The Arrogant Worms – Christmas Turkey

A musical comedy trio from Canada are The Arrogant Worms. Apparently they parody music genres too. Sounds like a cool party to me.

Wild Turkey – Battle Hymn

Formed back in 1971 by former Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick. Last I checked, Wild Turkey is still around too. By the way, any Wild Turkey album shall suffice as a suggestion. Drinking some Wild Turkey on Turkey Day is always another option.

Dre Towey with Sugar On Top – Turkey Bop

Once again, I dunno. Well, if you like turkey and want to bop, then I strongly urge you to give this one a serious listen. Metal be thy name.

Julia Marvel – The Turkey Sessions

Um, whatever. Is this a spoken word CD? A band? Stop the presses! I do know what “The Turkey Sessions” is all about! This is about the recent Deficit Reduction Committee! You know, those scholarly & economic versed politicians who were overpaid to find ways to cut U.S. government spending… and they accomplished… TURKEY!

National Lampoon – Gold Turkey (Radio Hour/Greatest Hits)

Obviously this album’s title sums up what you are going to hear. Comedy I imagine. Gold Turkey quality too. It must be pretty decent, as I have always enjoyed the National Lampoon movies over the years.

The Turkeys – Every Night’s The Same

This is the debut album from The Turkeys. The genre is Rock Americana. The Turkeys style: Bluegrass, Folk Rock and Blues. This album was released in 2007. That’s it, no more gravy about The Turkeys. I’ve given you enough information already and don’t want to spoil your turkey surprise.


All right now. Now we’re talking. Finally a suggestion I feel psyched about. I guess I’ve saved the best for last here. Beki Bondage and her solo album released in 2000: Cold Turkey. This album boasts 13 cover songs, from Thin Lizzy (The Boys Are Back In Town) to Nirvana (Smells Like Teen Spirit). Beki knows a thing or two about Rock ‘N Roll & Punk Rock. Take my Metal word for it…  the legendary Beki Bondage ROCKS. Beki is the singer, songwriter, guitarist and founding member for Vice Squad.

  1. Wow, I didn’t know Beki was still on the go. I saw her at a charity gig in a pub in West London back in 1986.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family

    • Metal Odyssey Says:

      Yup, Beki Bondage has paid her Rock ‘N Roll dues \m/ Very cool you saw her live back in ’86.

      Happy Thanksgiving to you as well… and thanks again for your past service to our country. 🙂

  2. Fun! 😀

    Mmm… Who is this Beki? 😉
