Saturday Matinee – Guitar Wolf, Robert Gordon & Wesseh Freeman

Guitar Wolf mixes The Ramones, Link Wray, rockabilly & 1977 punk and they call it “jet rock ‘n’ roll.” Don’t know how I missed these guys – they make some great noise.

Robert Gordon took Marshal Crenshaw‘s catchy tune and added just a pinch of psychobilly. The band includes Danny Gatton and Lance Quinn on guitars, Tony Garnier on electric bass and Shannon Ford on drums.

Wesseh Freeman from Monrovia, Liberia, was almost completely blind. He built his guitar from an oil can, a neck shaped with a machete, and strings from bicycle cables.  Amazing story despite a sad ending: he was 41 when he was struck by a car and died in 2018. [h/t Octopus]

That’ll do it for this episode. Have a great 3-day weekend, don’t drive through the deep water, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.
