Saturday Matinee – 6-Song Country Pop Mashup, The Cleverlys & Magic Sam Maghett

Saturday, 24 January 2015

This is why I could never stand Country Pop, but the mashup is clever and funny [via]. It reminds me of National Lampoon’s classic send up of CSN&Y.

The Cleverlys are pure country, and their take on The Bangles’ 1985 hit is pure awesome.

Let’s move on to something entirely different. How ’bout some Magic Sam?

Magic Sam Maghett graduated from a diddlybow to electric guitar. Pure country bluesman who travelled up the Mississippi to Chicago’s Cobra Records.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow and maybe we’ll discuss the many ways to secretly deflate footballs and turn them into a national crisis.

Saturday Matinee – Canadian Sprinkler, Norwegian Limbo & Swedish WTF

Saturday, 17 January 2015

Canadian lawn sprinkler.

Norwegian street limbo.

Swedish ooga chacka. Blue Swede‘s 1974 recording was based upon B.J. Thomas’ 1968 hit “Hooked On A Feeling” as corrupted by Britain’s Jonathan King in 1971.

Have a great weekend folks. We’ll be back here tomorrow to mess around some more.

Old-TV-with-test-pattern--facing-right-

Not so long ago, owning a black and white TV was a status symbol. Then color TVs came along, and someone invented a tinted screen with a parabolic lens that less affluent folks could attach to their b/w sets to simulate color – it had a brown tint on the bottom for dirt, blue on the top for sky, and a bizarre flavor of red/pink in the middle where the actors’ faces usually were – and it magnified the size of the screen. This cheap fixit was often better at rendering hues than the color TVs were, as the latter often gave the actors a distinctive fuzzy green complexion anyway.

At least Spock looked good.

Saturday Matinee – The Travelin’ McCoury’s, Muddy Waters & Buddy Guy / Robert Junior Lockwood / Koko Taylor / Charlie Musselwhite

Saturday, 27 December 2014

Keller Williams with The Travelin’ McCourys‘ “Pumped Up Kicks” made me laugh. Clever stuff that.

How ’bout some Muddy Waters? Here’s a jam from 1978. (Note that James Cotton is not the first harp blower on the vid.)

Killer blues tribute with a great lineup. 45 minutes of pure awesome.

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