Revenge of Banjo

Sabata - Killer banjoGreg Cahill, the fearless leader of Special Consensus, sent along a link to a hilarious bit of video on YouTube. It’s a short clip from the 1969 spaghetti Western, Sabata, featuring William Berger who played a character named Banjo.

The clip brings a whole new meaning to the terms “killer banjo” and “machine gun right hand” as Banjo faces a quintet of gunmen who have called him out.

Watch the clip to see him triumph with his banjo – and get the girl.

Thanks to Keith Baumann of Uptown Rhythm Productions who first shared the link with Greg.
