Ragpicker
A Rag-picker, or Chiffonnier, is term for someone who makes a living by rummaging through refuse in the streets to collect material for salvage. Scraps of cloth and paper could be turned into cardboard, broken glass could be melted down and reused, and even dead cats and dogs could be skinned to make clothes. The rag-pickers in 19th and early 20th Century did not recycle the materials themselves; they would simply collect whatever they could find and turn it over to a "master rag-picker" (usually a former rag-picker) who would, in turn, sell it—generally by weight—to wealthy investors with the means to convert the materials into something more profitable.[1][2] Although it was solely a job for the lowest of the working classes, rag-picking was considered an honest occupation, more on the level of street sweeper than of a beggar

Garage Rock
Garage rock
Garage rock
(sometimes called '60s punk or garage punk) is a raw and energetic style of rock and roll that flourished in the mid-1960s, most notably in the United States
United States
and Canada. The style is characterized by basic chord structures played on electric guitars and other instruments, sometimes distorted through a fuzzbox, as well as often unsophisticated and occasionally aggressive lyrics and delivery. The term "garage rock" derives from the perception that groups were often made up of young amateurs who rehearsed in the family garage, although many were professional. In the US and Canada, surf rock—and later the Beatles and other beat groups of the British Invasion—motivated thousands of young people to form bands between 1963 and 1968. Hundreds of acts produced regional hits, and some had national hits

magazine, with a unique Jack White-designed etching on the flipside of each record.[1][2] The song is told from the point of view of two rag and bone collectors, portrayed by both Jack and Meg White. The song's conventional verses and choruses are interspersed with a spoken narrative. The single version of the song is a different mix from the version that was later released on the UK LP 'Icky Thump' album. Sean Fennessey of Vibe called the song "the funniest and best track" on Icky Thump.[3] References[edit]^ NME

Ragtime
Ragtime
Ragtime
– also spelled rag-time or rag time[1] – is a musical style that enjoyed its peak popularity between 1895 and 1918.[2] Its cardinal trait is its syncopated, or "ragged", rhythm.[2] The style has its origins in African-American
African-American
communities in cities such as St. Louis.[3][4] Ernest Hogan
Ernest Hogan
(1865–1909) was a pioneer of ragtime and was the first composer to have his ragtime pieces (or "rags") published as sheet music, beginning with the song "LA Pas Ma LA," published in 1895. Hogan has also been credited for coining the term ragtime. The term is actually derived from his hometown "Shake Rag" in Bowling Green, Kentucky.[citation needed] Ben Harney, another Kentucky native, has often been credited for introducing the music to the mainstream public. His first ragtime composition, "You've Been a Good Old Wagon But You Done Broke Down", helped popularize the style

Original Rags
"Original Rags" (copyrighted March 15, 1899) was an early ragtime medley for piano.[1] It was the first of Scott Joplin's rags to appear in print, in early 1899, preceding his "Maple Leaf Rag" by half a year.Contents1 Publication history 2 Structure 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksPublication history[edit] The tune's copyright was registered on March 15, 1899,[1] and it was first published by Carl Hoffman of Kansas City, Missouri.[2] The original cover page showed an elderly black man picking up rags in front of a ramshackle cabin, and has been interpreted as a double pun, first on the activities of a rag (or junk) picker, and second on a slang term for ragtime, "picking the piano".
