Saturday Matinee – Ella Mae Morse, Ray McKinley, Will Bradley, Daddy Slack, Maurice Rocco, Mabel Lee, Commander Cody, Jerry Garcia, Elvis Costello and Sammy Hagar… and Leon Redbone.

Saturday, 13 March 2010

I’d forgotten all about Ella Mae Morse until I restumbled upon her here. Freddy “Daddy” Slack, along with Ray McKinley and Will Bradley provided the backup. The Will Bradley Trio was a small big band that never quite found their niche, but left a big mark.

Never heard of  ‘em? Try this.

Here’s Maurice Rocco, a poundin’ on the whites and a slappin’ on the blacks in this version of McKinley & Bradley’s classic “Beat Me, Daddy, Eight To The Bar.” (See any influence on Little Richard or Jerry Lee Lewis there?)

Meanwhile, here’s Commander Cody, Jerry Garcia, Elvis Costello and Sammy Hagar, all in one pile of stuff that you’re probably glad you didn’t pay to see. Good god that’s embarassing.  I’ll tell you the truth, I didn’t listen to the whole trainwreck either. My heroes are gone… except for one.

Saturday Matinee: Black Friday the 13th

Thinly veiled political commentary follows.

Steely Dan was (is?) one of those bands that Bunk enjoyed listening to but never bothered to buy their albums. (Note that the band took it’s name from a stimulus package described by this guy.)

Couldn’t find a video of Talking Heads’ “The Swamp” but this’ll do. Hah.

Obama’s congress in action. Watch what happens to the U.S. economy.

On a lighter note, Happy St. Valentine’s Day!
