Saturday Matinee – The Great McGonigal, Super Chikan & The Sensational Alex Harvey Band

Saturday, 20 September 2014

The Great McGonigal, aka W.C. Fields, knew his cigar boxes.

Guy’s playing a Diddley Bow. Pure awesome, and here’s his website.

And since the sentient voters of Scotland wisely chose to postpone secession from Great Britain for now, here’s this:  my favorite Scottish band ever:

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band was oddly under appreciated in the US (except for a cult following in Cleveland) but was popular in the proto-punk theater-rock scene in Great Britain. Vambo Rools.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow for more inanity.

That’s Michelle Obama wearing something that no other mortal has ever worn. She strapped it on, laced it, and tied it up all by herself. TRUE.

Saturday Matinee – The Temptations & Edwin Starr, Eric Burdon & War, and Seasick Steve

Saturday, 13 September 2014

Edwin Starr lip-synched the classic song “War” in 1969. Good God, y’all. Originally recorded by The Temptations, their version was squelched and re-recorded with Starr on vocals. It made No.1 on the charts in 1970, and was one of 161 songs on the Clear Channel no-play list after September 11, 2001 according to Wiki.

Nobody wants war except our enemies, and to ignore their stated intents and stated goals is fatal. Seems to me that if they want to kill all of us, all Jews, all of Western Civilization, we’re going to have a very long fight.

Eric Burdon & WAR was awesome.

Seasick Steve jams pure awesome swamp rock with an electric Diddley Bow.

That’ll do it for today. Have a great weekend folks.

Controlling Your Every Movement

“Hey. I have an idea. Let’s go to the bathroom together and I’ll take a photo of you sitting on the toilet. Look all sultry and slutty, and we’ll post it on the internest.”

“Um. Okay. But you’re not really gonna post it, right?”

“Naw.”

Welcome to Freshman Year.

Saturday Matinee – The McCoys, The Gentrys & The Iguanas

Saturday, 6 September 2014

The McCoys had a hit with 1964’s “Hang On Sloopy” and Sloopy was a hottie in this vid. The Ohio State Marching Band (aka TBDBINTL) coopted the song, and did their version, a capella, followed by the instrumental version, and recorded it ca.1970 on “Buckeye Battle Cry.”

Nice mashup of 60s TV with The Gentrys‘ 1965 hit “Keep On Dancing.” The song was released about the same time I fell in love with Ronnie Specter who told me she wanted to be my baby whoa oh oh oh oh.

“Blues For Juarez.” Texas roadtrip vid featuring The Iguanas has a nice slow groove. I got the ice, you got the beer, and the tunes are locked and loaded.  Let’s roll.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow.

Two Horse Flies

Horsefly Wet

Horsefly Dry

Both are horseflies, and the top one is a liar. No matter how cute he looks covered in early morning dew, he’s gonna bite you, and the second one is going to laugh.

Yes, it’s true. Horse flies laugh and they know how to throw a trollface.

Update: Completely forgot The Friday .Gif Post last night. 12 hours of battling red tape at LADBS got me all bonky. Meanwhile, visit our .gif archives here.
