Saturday Matinee – Bébé Chouette, TrollfesT & Irma

Saturday, 11 October 2014

“What the hell is dat?” Owls spot camera [via].

TrollfesT is a Norwegian folk metal band (according to Wiki) who want to party in Cabana, and “Solskinnsmedisin” translates to “Sunshine Medical” according to Mr. Google. Where the hell is Norwegia? Bunkarina’s boyfriend thought I might like it, and I did. If that was a bit much, here’s something a bit lighter.

Irma Pany is a singer-songwriter from Cameroon. “Save Me” is kinda catchy, and the video is kinda interesting [via].

Have a great weekend, and we’ll be back tomorrow with more blatant inanity.

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 – Patches The Horse, John/Lee/Pop Mashup & The Reverend Horton Heat

Saturday, 27 September 2014

Meet Patches the Horse.

That’s  just bizarre, but it kept my attention for more than 15 seconds, so I’m posting the clever mashup featuring Iggy Pop and Peggy Lee. Little Willie John’s “Fever” will never sound the same. So where do we go from here? I’m stumped. Oh wait, I got it. Let’s slow it down a tad with some retroness.

It suits me, so it suits you. The Reverend Horton Heat‘s “Galaxy 500″ makes the nut.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more of teh awesome.

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.

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.

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.

Saturday Matinee – Valerie June, Steve ‘n’ Seagulls & The Forbidden Pigs

Saturday, 30 August 2014

Valerie June plays “organic moonshine roots music.” More popular in Europe than the U.S., her recording of “Workin’ Woman Blues” was produced and engineered in Budapest. [via]

A Finnish redneck bluegrass band playing AC/DC with Irish influences and an anvil? Steve ‘n’ Seagulls cover of “Thunderstruck” is awesome. [via]

“Rake My Back” by The Forbidden Pigs (live at the Zoo Bar, Lincoln Nebraska 2001). The missus and I saw them in L.A. about 10 years prior by accident. We went to see The Paladins, and Jimmy & The Mustangs were there, too. The Paladins were great, The Mustangs were loud, but The F Pigs blew everyone away.  Best stunt was when the drummer got up on his stool, took a flip over his kit, landed on his feet and beat the strings of Bacon’s bass. Pure awesome.

Have a great Labor Day weekend, folks. We’re not going anywhere soon.

Saturday Matinee – Farmer Derek Klingenberg, The Fire House Five+Two & Trombone Shorty

Saturday, 23 August 2014

Calling cows with a bovine ‘bone by Farmer Derek Klingenberg.

The Fire House Five (plus Two)  play “Red Hot River Valley” (1951). The band was made up of members of Disney’s animation department and were fairly successful.

Trombone Shorty on trumpet with “Hurricane Season” (2010)  This New Orleans funk jazz mix works.

That should hold you for a while. More stuff coming down the pipe, so see you tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Wingsuit Fail, Honey Cakes, Karen Marie (with Postmodern Jukebox) & Buddy Guy

Saturday, 16 August 2014

Wingsuit fail vid from Corcovado, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
[SFK. Yeah, as horrible and disturbing as it is,  it's SFK.]

Bees in China [via].

Karen Marie‘s take on Little Willie John‘s “Fever” (done in 12 styles with Postmodern Jukebox). It kept my attention, even though the video erroneously credits Peggy Lee for the song. LWJ recorded it in 1956;  two years later Peggy Lee covered it.

Here’s the great Buddy Guy and his take on the song. And with that we’re out. Have a great weekend, folks. See you soon.

RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)

Tuesday, 12 August 2014

Robin Williams RIP

Here’s a classic Williams routine: “How The Scotts Invented Golf.” [Language warning - NSFK].

Heaven’s now got Robin Williams, Jonathan Winters, Sid Caesar and others, and you can bet that God is laughing his ass off right now… about golf.

Nanu Nanu, Mork.
