Saturday Matinee – Petting an Octopus, David Byrne, Cab Calloway & The Rutles

by

He might not realize it, but the octopus is tasting him. [Found here, via here.]

Everybody’s coming to David Byrne‘s house. Everybody. [via].

Nice lip synch & choreography to Cab Calloway‘s December1948 recording of “Everybody Eats When They Come To My House.” (Everybody eats, except for one guy).

Okay so now we’ve got a food theme going.

The Rutles were one great parody band (perhaps surpassed by but even that is arguable). The album “All You Need Is Cash” is so spot-on that those who don’t know it was a hoax think it’s the real Fab Four Try it. It really sounds like a Beatles Greatest Hits compilation.

Dylan Hears A Who is awesome, also. Lemme know if you want a .zip file that includes the CD liner notes.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow when we’ll discuss unprovable allegations from over 30 years ago attempting to destroy an honorable man’s career, family and life by people who have no ethics and want to eradicate the U.S. Constitution by fiat.

That octopus is awesome.

    I used to have a copy of ‘Meet the Rutles.’ I think my daughter has it now.

    Wheels– The album is awesome. Neil Innes and Eric Idle nailed the style. We’d play it during college beer parties, and stoners would ask “Wow. What Beatles’ album is that?”

  3. wheels Says:

    Yep. They definitely nailed it. Lotta fun.

  4. Bunk Strutts Says:

    wheels– I bought the album in college. We’d play it, and invariably someone would say, “Wow. Which Beatles album is that?”
