Saturday Matinee – The End, The Brothers Comatose w/ AJ Lee, Justin Johnson, Kingfish Ingram &

In 2020, the world stood still… in the movies too.
The End is an experimental narrative short film, in black & white and color, made only with movies gifs with a perfect loop, more than 500.

The End is also a tribute to the cinema, from silent films to now.

Music by Enrico Morricone. [h/t Mme. Jujujive]

The Brothers Comatose with AJ Lee covers Neil Young – and do it better.

Justin Johnson‘s style mashup works.

23 year old Kingfish Ingram has already recorded and/or performed with Rick Derringer, Samantha Fish, Eric Gales, Guitar Shorty, Buddy Guy, Bob Margolin, Keb Mo, Mr. Sipp and the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Amazing.

Whoa. It’s the weekend already. Lotta time flies these days and we’ll see you tomorrow sooner than you think.

In The Morning, The Mighty Marvelows (1968)
Formed in Chicago in the 1950s  as Little Satan & The Demons, later as The Mystics, the group landed a recording deal with ABC-Paramount in 1964 and became The Marvelows. They had little initial success (Billboard suspended its R&B listings in 1963) but scored with I Do in 1965. In 1968, to avoid being confused with The Marvellos, they became The Mighty Marvelows but disbanded the following year.

Saturday Matinee – The Crow, Samantha Fish & Unknown Hinson

The Crow (2022) is a film  short created by Glenn Marshall Neural Art.

In December 2017 Samantha Fish ripped into the classic Crow Jane.
“Its roots lay in the Piedmont region of Virginia and North and South Carolina. Rev. Gary Davis was known to perform it during the 1920’s, and the first recording was made in 1927 by guitarist Julius Daniels.”
Not sure what Crow Jane did to deserve being killed.

“Here come the dayum train, Bebeh!” – Unknown Hinson

Guess that’ll do for now.  Have a great weekend despite what they tell you, and tomorrow we’re gonna do stuff.

Marie, The Four Tunes (1953)The Four Tunes originated from The Brown Dots, a quartet started in New York City by Ivory “Deek” Watson  after he split from the Ink Spots in late 1944. Marie was written by Irving Berlin and first recorded by Nat Shilkret & the RCA Victor Orchestra (as The Troubadors) in 1928.

Saturday Matinee – Compact Living, Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and Die Häder Bänd w/ Linda Krieg

The tenants’ reviews are interesting [via].

Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro.

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings did a great cover of Gregg Allman’s Midnight Rider (even though it’s a commercial). Sharon Jones succumbed to pancreatic cancer in 2016 at the age of 60.

Acclaimed German blues group Die Häder Bänd covers Memphis Minnie. Can’t find the lineup, but that’s Linda Krieg is on vocals and harp.

Don’t know what happened, but I lost a day this week and missed the .Gif Friday Post. Maybe it’s because I got mask-shamed by a dwarf. Again.

Meanwhile have a great weekend and we’ll go on a link binge tomorrow.

Daryl Dixon takes a break..

Party Hard, Little Isidore & The Inquisitors (date unknown)Can’t find a date for this gem, could be 1993 or 2012, but I love it.  Little Isidore is/was the  alter ego of David Forman, a little known musician with a great resume; he fronts The Inquisitors, aka The Golden Inquisitors, aka The Mighty Inquisitors. Forman is 10 years younger than Little Isidore.

Saturday Matinee Christmas – Jason D. Williams, The Petersens, and Leon Redbone w/ Ken Peplowski & Dr. John

Jason D. Williams is a madman on the ivories, and the video was posted on the Utoobage just a few days ago.

The PetersensSleigh Ride [2:31] is a fun take on one of my favorites.

“Listen to how perfect this is…
The Doctor, Leon, and the heir to Benny Goodman…”

Leon Redbone, Dr. John and Ken Peplowski make a great trio, and Leon spelled backwards is, well, you know.

Have a great pre-holiday weekend, be back here tomorrow for some last minute shopping.
