Wendy Mc Donald, priceless 1996 song and video by Spookey Ruben, a Canadian alternative rocker from Toronto. Rather distinctive sound consisting of mixed acoustic and electric guitars and swapping between high and low vocals. His father was a space engineer, hence probably the shots in the video.

Little Green Bag will forever be linked to Quentin Tarantino's 1992 debut film Reservoir Dogs, one of my all-time favourites btw. It was the debut single of the Dutch pop group the George Baker Selection, which, apart from Little Green Bags, produced otherwise rather cheesy stuff. Old enough Dutchmen peeking in will remember Paloma Blanca, and their eartips are coloring red as we speak. George Baker is the artist name of singer and guitarist Johannes Bouwens. Either way, I can't think of a better intro for this brilliant movie. And whatever happened to Tim Roth? And Michael Madsen?
