Saturday Matinee – Lecil Travis Martin, Steve Goodman & Little Isadore

Saturday, 12 April 2014

Boxcar

Boxcar Willie’s “Winds Of Yesterday” is pretty cool ol’ country.

Don’t laugh. Steve Goodman was the author of the greatest train song ever, except for the one by Tiny Bradshaw.

Not sure where we’re going with this, so let’s go retro with Little Isador and The Inquisitors.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be careful goin’ home.

Unfortunately some of these *ahem* styles drifted across the Atlantic. I remember A1, A2, B1, B2, B3, C1, C3, D1 & D2. Mine was a mix of A1, B4 and D3, and no, I’m not gonna post it.

Saturday Matinee – Fireflies, Pete Daily & Red Nichols

Saturday, 5 April 2014

Timelapse of fireflies by Vincent Brady [via].

Pete Daily‘s “Over The Waves” from 1951: Daily on cornet, Burt Johnson trombone, Pud Brown clarinet, Skippy Anderson piano, Len Esterdahl banjo, Bud Hatch tuba and Hugh Allison drums.

Red Nichols & His Five Pennies rocked your grandparents, assuming your grandparents were entirely cool and bitchin’. (Of course they were.)

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

Saturday Matinee – Postmodern Jukebox, Oh!Sharels & Molly Sue Gonzalez

Saturday, 29 March 2014

Postmodern Jukebox (featuring The Tee-Tones) does Pitbull‘s & Keisha‘s “Timber” in doowop style, and we love it.

Couldn’t make it through the original version. Then we thought we’d look for some recent retro bands and found this.

Japanese girl group Oh!Sharels cover the Chords’ 1954 classic Sh-Boom.

Contrary to popular belief, doowop (aka R&B aka Rhythm & Blues) was not the only form of early rock and roll, so let’s kick it up with some Retrobilly.

Molly Sue Gonzalez (And The Mean Mean Men) “Bad Example” is just the thing to wrap up this edition of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend folks, be back here tomorrow.

2014 Russia Olympics

How to make a wooden Viking beer mug with a hatchet and a knife. I’d use the rawhide method.

Better yet – how to scout and set up a whiskey still in the hills of Appalachia. The late Popcorn Sutton is his own live narrator on this 96 minute video, entitled, “This Is The Last Damn Likker Run I’ll Ever Make.” Take the time to watch it.

Interesting comparative photo essay of differing people of the U.S.

Large Brass Industrial Man Template is a great title for that post.

The True Story of The Simpsons.

Ohio State School For The Blind Marching Band accompanied the OSU  Marching Band for “script Ohio” September 2013.

Amy Oops has free tickets for something. Go for it.

Girls and whale sharks.

Top image refers to this story. KGB, NSA, what’s the difference.
