More stuff about knots than what you learned in Boy Scouts. I can’t tell if this is brilliance, a spoof, or if someone in the UC Santa Barbara math department has gone scooters.

“Milk Cow Blues” was originally recorded by Sleepy John Estes in 1930. This version is a kinda late night early morning retro country thang performed by Wayne Hancock & Co. in 2008. Hoy hoy hoy, indeed. Here are two other versions:
Doc Watson was awesome.
Aerosmith did a nice cover of “Milk Cow Blues” that had nothing to do with the 1930 original that I can tell, but at least they worked in some Chuck Berry riffs.
Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll be back here tomorrow whether you like it or not.
[Note that the Utoobage link for Sleepy John Estes’ “Milk Cow Blues” is not the same song.]
Frank Zappa & The Mothers, Live at The Roxy, 1973. Wait for the slide trombone solo sans trombone. Early polyrhythmic jazz fusion, whether you like it or not.
“Mama Told Me Not To Come” was written by Randy Newman for Eric Burden and The Animals who recorded & released it in 1967. Very cool song sung partially in Ebonics. The best known version was by Three Dog Night in 1970.
There’s a little something for everyone on this post. Have a great weekend, and be sure too give your Mamas a great big hug tomorrow. If you don’t, I will.
Prior to his solo career, Ben E. King was a key member of The Drifters, a doo-wop group founded in 1953 and fronted by Clyde McPhatter. King replaced McPhatter as lead singer in 1958, and the New Drifters were born. Most of King’s hits were written by the team of Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller, prolific songwriters of the time.
Tribute to the B-52s by Full Blown Cherry. Yeah, it’s a crappy video, but watch what they pull off. They’re not amateurs, and by 02:50 a roadie has to hold the amp down. Any three-man band that can pull off a Rockabilly Tribute To The Ramones gets my full respect.
Have a great weekend folks, be back here in a few minutes.
Have a great weekend, folks, and for those of us who are self-employed, it’s time to cough up some b*ks to the IRS f*ks.
Saturday Matinee – Fritz the Dog, Rockabilly Speed Drawing, Billy Woodward & The Senders, The Howlin’ Brothers, Imelda May with Darrel HighamSaturday, 28 March 2015
Fritz The Dog finally gets it.
This vid is entitled “Rockabilly Speed Drawing.” It’s cool and fast and rockabilly. Not sure what the connection is besides the sound track, but it’s still cool and fast and rockabilly.
Billy Woodward & The Senders. Awesome retro sound.
The Howlin’ Brothers crank out some home-grown basics.
Imelda May is killer with “The Right Amount of Wrong.”
Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow.
“Hand Full of Keys,” performed here by Stephanie Trick, is a Fats Waller composition, circa 1938. Awesome stride piano style. Although I’m somewhat ambidextrous and have a basic understanding of music theory and chords, there’s no way I could cut those chops.
Tuba Skinny is my favorite band these days.
I had a conversation with some of my co-workers recently, and the topic of Yellow Snow came up. I tried to explain Nanook of the North and failed, so we’re forced into Zappa mode.
You can find Zappa’s “Nanook Rubs It” on the Utoobage on your own, but “Deathless Horsie” is amazing.
Have a great SuperBowl Weekend folks. Seattle sucks big green donkeys because Seattle sucks big green donkeys. Everyone outside of Seattle knows Seattle sucks big green donkeys and so does Seattle. Seattle sucks big green donkeys.
