Saturday Matinee – Chip Test, Unethical Football, Burnside & Woods, Rancid, and Buster Keaton

Memory chip testing WIN!

Awesome play. (Tip o’ the Tarboosh to Kitty.)

Country Blues, with Johhny Woods and R.L. Burnside. Woods teamed up with Mississippi Fred McDowell during the 60s blues revival.

Burnside learned from McDowell who lived in the next county over, but never got much attention until the 90s. Burnside and his family, tired of the life of sharecroppers, moved to Chicago in the early 50s. Subsequently his father, uncle and brother were murdered there.

In 1959 he returned to Mississippi, and was convicted for murder himself, and served time at the Parchman Penitentiary. He was freed after only six months… via a bit of chicanery.

Rancid‘s “Time Bomb” was a retro ska hit in the early 90s.

Buster Keaton, aka The Great Stoneface, was a classic. Grab a beverage and a snack and enjoy a blast from the early years of comedy. Have a great weekend folks, and be back here tomorrow.
