Saturday Matinee – Pushing Hay, The Ballad of Holland Island House & The Tom Stormy Trio featuring Rhythm Sophie

Saturday, 4 April 2015

Pushing hay [via]. Makes me itchy just watching it.

“The Ballad of Holland House” is based upon a true story.

Holland Island sits in Chesapeake Bay, near Wenona, Maryland. The five-mile-long island was settled in the 1600s, and at one time had a population of 360 people and 70 buildings. Erosion ate away at the island, which sat on silt and clay, and the residents moved away between 1914 and 1918. The island’s church was moved in 1922, and only one house remained standing. It was built in 1888. For decades, the water ate away at the island, and the last remaining house finally collapsed in October of 2010. What’s left of the island is now a marsh, home to hundreds of sea birds. See pictures of the island and the house -and the cemetery- at the Baltimore Sun [via].

How ’bout some retro rockabilly from Budapest?

The Tom Stormy Trio (featuring Leipzig’s Miss Rhythm Sophie) is just the thing to wrap up this edition of The Saturday Matinee.

Have a great Passover / Easter, folks.

Saturday Matinee – Holton Rower’s Paint Spills, Jack Broadbent & Floyd Jones

Saturday, 21 February 2015

Interesting artsy spilly painty project [via].

Awesome slide by Jack Broadbent on the streets of Amsterdam in 2014 with a cover of Canned Heat’s “On The Road Again.”

On The Road Again” was penned by the late Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson and Floyd Jones. Wilson died of a barbiturate overdose in 1970 at the age of 27, within a few weeks of the similar drug-related deaths of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. So what about Floyd Jones? Let’s hear him.

Here’s Floyd Jones‘ “Stockyard Blues” with his own commentary.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – British Army Marching Band, The Wolfgangs & Devil On Wheels

Saturday, 4 October 2014

Nice BAMB flashmob work in Cardiff, Wales, 5 October 2013, playing “Colonel Bogey,” a march  written in 1914 and made famous in the movie “The Bridge On The River Kwai.”

Whenever I hear that popular tune, for some reason I think of psychobilly. Yeah. Let’s go there.

The Wolfgangs‘ “Cannibal Family” rocks it in this vid from 2011. Where do we go from here? How bout a hot rod / juvenile delinquent movie?

Devil On Wheels” dates to 1947, features some vintage rods and sappy lessons.

In addition to being the first film about street racing youth, it is also notable for being one of the first films to feature actresses (Terry Moore & Noreen Nash) wearing bikini tops. [Wiki]

Have a great weekend, folks. We’ll do something different tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Johnny Winter (1944–2014)

Johnny Winter 1944-2014

Johnny Winter, legendary guitarist and one of the most recognizable icons of Texas blues and rock passed away at the age of 70 earlier this week after a long career.

In a documentary released this year entitled “Johnny Winter Down and Dirty,” he laughed, “Made my first record when I was 15, started playing clubs when I was 15. Started drinking and smoking when I was 15. Sex when I was 15. Fifteen was a big year for me.”

According to Wiki, at age 10 he and his 8 year old brother Edgar played on local TV in his hometown of Beaumont Texas.  Johnny Winter performed for an astounding 60 years, and he died while on still on tour.



RIP, Johnny. You made our roadtrips a hellalotta fun.

The origins of Mad Magazine – 1954 Senate Subcommitee on Juvenile Deliquency, led by progressive Senator Estes Kefauver (D), moved to censor comic books.

Animatronic spider is amazing.

Public Service Announcement. Please watch.

How to save an uprooted tree.

What’s in Marcellus Wallace’s briefcase? I had to axe Mr. Google for the reference, found that it has to do with a scene in the movie Pulp Fiction. Now that I know, this kinda makes sense.

THIS was a clever prank.

“I told my brother he had a bug on him.”

You can’t see The Great Wall of China from space, but you can see this.

Not sure what this means, but it’s kinda cool.
