MUSIC - Zydeco

Just discovered "Buckwheat Zydeco"

"Though disputed, it is commonly suggested that 'zydeco' derives from the French phrase Les haricots ne sont pas sal├ęs, which, when spoken in the Louisiana Creole French, sounds as 'leh-zy-dee-co nuh sohn pah salay.'  This literally translates as 'the snap beans aren't salty' but idiomatically as 'I have no spicy news for you.'  The earliest recorded use of the term may have been the country and western musical group called Zydeco Skillet Lickers who recorded the song It Ain't Gonna Rain No Mo in 1929." - Wikipedia
