Saturday Matinee – All Your Bass Are Belong To Us

Saturday, 25 July 2015

Postmodern Jukebox‘s “All About That Bass” has just the right amount of slink with a cool bass stunt.

There’s some serious funkslappin going on in Marcus Miller‘s 2008 jam version of Tower of Power‘s 1973 hit “What Is Hip.”

This 6-string bass street jammer’s pretty good, too.

We’ve posted Willie Dixon‘s classic “Bassology” before, and it’s a good wrap up for this edition of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, folks.

Pat Reidy’s Contribution to the World: Coca-Cola Museum, Xalapa, Mexico

Coke 1

Hi, Pat. I see that your love for Coca-Cola is still alive and well. Why do you love it so much?

Pat Reidy: Well, firstly, I really like the flavor, but I also think that it represents one of the best publicity campaigns that there’s ever been in the world. It’s international, it’s intelligent, and uses everything to promote its brand. People see a T-shirt, a toy, a poster or whatever, and want to drink a Coke. Coca-Cola invented Santa Claus, and that says everything.

[…]

Yes, please. Tell me about the steps I need to follow in order to be a professional Coca-Cola drinker.
You should always drink it really cold; always from a glass bottle, or maybe from a can, but never, ever from a plastic bottle. The best Coke is the one that comes from the tiny glass bottle. I always buy the 355-milliliter glass bottle, though.

How many Cokes do you drink a day?
I don’t drink it much nowadays. I drink one 355-milliliter bottle a day and I really enjoy it—you have no idea. Unless there’s a party or a special occasion; then I drink more. But that’s what I do now, because for years, when I had to teach 12 hours a day, drinking Coke was my salvation. I used to drink 15 355-milliliter bottles a day.

Was it ever bad for your health?
Never. Back then there was no water. There was no purified water and they didn’t sell water gallons to keep at home. So between drinking boiled water or Coke, well, there is no contest, really. I also cook with Coca-Cola.

What do you cook with Coke?
You can cook many things with Coca-Cola. I even have recipe books. My specialty is a hamburger that I make with my secret recipe. I fry it on my grandmother’s pan—which is huge—with Coca-Cola instead of oil, a bit of English sauce, pepper, garlic salt, and onions. It’s wonderful. I call it Pat’s hamburger. I also use it in soups. I love it.

RT N’ THE 44s is Swimmy Webb, Brendan Willard, Leif Bunting, Johnny Sneed, and RT Valine. Featuring Timbo of Speedbuggy on slide can [via]. Awesome roots rock.

Speedbuggy USA cranks it. How about some more retro?

The Blasters were awesome and put on a great show when I saw them at the Whiskey in 1981 or so. (They were the warmup band for The Fabulous Thunderbirds.) Here are brothers Phil and Dave Alvin pickin’ and flickin’ in 2014.

Have a great weekend, folks.
Be back here tomorrow for more stuff.
