Saturday Matinee – Hot Cats


Cats and croissants. [via]

I loved the Stray Cats’ retrobilly thang, and this was one of their finest moments. (BTW,  “Fridays” was a much funnier show than Saturday Night Live IMO.)

Speaking of Eddie Cochran, here’s Gene Vincent’s  “Be-Bop-A-Lula.”

Vince Taylor beat out The Who with this cover of Johnny Kidd & The Pirates’  “Shakin’ All Over.”

And here’s one of the greatest latter day rock and roll love songs in my opinion. Have a great weekend, folks, and may you all have pleasant surprises.

    Man! You just can’t stop your feet from tapping when the Stray Cats fire up and Lordy, Lordy!!! What a voice Tom Waits has…. I wonder if Tom and Rod Stewart ever did Downtown Train together???? How crazy would that be!!!

    Ah tom Tom Tom… you’re the man for me. And someone please bring back the pointy bra – how sexy is that?

    Tattoo Jim– I read an interview with Tom Waits a long while ago. He was shooting for a Howlin’ Wolf sound, and deliberately messed up his vocal chords by screaming into a pillow, just to get the gravel.

    nursem– Bullets and zeppelin races!
