Saturday Matinee – Harley Trikes, Joey Smith & Jerry Jeff Walker
Harley-Davidson WTF courtesy of Jonco. Nice soundtrack.
Joey Smith won some kind of blues award without a backup band. I considered that cheating until I heard him shred the awesome.
(No Wiki page yet).
Jerry Jeff Walker can’t rhyme for crap, yet his songs are still awesome.
That does it for this edition of The Saturday Matinee. Come back tomorrow for new oddities.

The Day Gravity Changed
Except for rotating and cropping the image and enhancing the colors, that’s not a photo shop. The original image [below the break] is even more bizarre. Continue reading “The Day Gravity Changed”

Saturday Matinee – Kaitlin Heller, Ike Willis with Sara Zimmerman & Johnny Winter
The viral Twerking Fail video, uncut. Jimmy Kimmel & stuntwoman Kaitlin Heller chumped the MSM.
Ike Willis‘s version of Zappa’s “Suicide Chump” with Sarah Zimmerman. Most of her stuff is acoustic, but she’s no slouch on electric slide guitar. The last line in the song is “All you can say as you run down the street is:” and Willis cuts it off. In Zappa’s version, it transmogrifies into “Jumbo Go Away.”
Let’s get back to the slide.
Johnny Winter‘s “Mean Town Blues” from 1970, and no, that’s not a cover – he wrote it. Awesome Texas boogie in the style of John Lee Hooker.
That’s it for this edition of The Saturday Matinee. Rock on.
