You Tell Her – I Stutter, The Georgians (1923).
The Georgians were a subset of the Paul Specht Orchestra. Specht had a gig at the Hotel Alamac in New York City in 1920. The orchestra played music for dancing in the ballroom and afterwards a smaller version of the group that went by the name of the Georgians played in the cocktail lounge.

Saturday Matinee – Igorrr, The Wise Guyz, Firebird Trio & Billy Strings

Saturday, 1 August 2020

“It feels satisfying that, after all those years on the internet, I still can be wtfed.” -YouTube comment

I don’t know what to make of that, so you’re on your own. Igorrr (aka  Gautier Serre) claims to have synesthesia and perceives music as colors.

Like Ukrainian rockabilly? The Wise Guyz do a damn fine job.

Too hot to handle and too cold to hold, Australia’s Firebird Trio takes the heart of rock and roll and nails it to your forehead.

“Looks 14, sings like a 40 year old and jams like he’s been playing for a hundred years.” -YouTube comment.

William Apostol, aka Billy Strings, was exposed to bluegrass at a young age, and it shows. I’ve got turmoil and tinfoil on my mind these days, too.

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll figure it all out tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Elise Trouw, Lake Street Dive, Billy Bacon & The Forbidden Pigs;

Saturday, 25 July 2020

Elise Trouw is kind of amazing – she’s capable on drums, vocals, guitar, piano, bass guitar and synth stuff. Pretty hyno, kind of a Wendy Carlos meets Laurie Anderson meet John Bonham thing.

Lake Street Dive (featuring Rachael Price) on a yellow couch in 2016. Price was born in Australia and grew up in Tennessee. The band formed in Boston, but it’s not clear to me where (or if) they’re anchored.

Billy Bacon & the Forbidden Pigs were a hoot in their heyday. Saw the Pigs in So. Cal in the late ’80s, and they blew me away. Bacon would climb up ON his bass and jam, or take it to the floor for a roll around, and never miss a beat.

There’s something for (almost) everyone in that mix. Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow whether you like it or not.

Saturday Matinee – Erecting Trajan’s Column, The Real McKenzies & Room Full Of Blues

Saturday, 18 July 2020

Trajan’s Column: ancient technology animated. Trajan was a good guy, at least as far as Roman emperors go, and was popular for his public works projects. (His cousin Hadrian succeeded him and built a famous wall to keep out Celts, Scots, Picts & other badass tribes.)

Scottish-Canadian band The Real McKenzies. Nice scenery, unfortunate animations, and echoes of the Ramones.

Beyond the best bar band in the world, Roomful of Blues has been performing since 1967 (with an impressive roster).

Have a great weekend, folks. We’ll post some stuff tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Asphalt Orchestra, Euphoria Brass Band & Mudcat

Saturday, 11 July 2020

Asphalt Orchestra (the ambulatory arm of Bang on a Can) is pretty good, but they’re downright amazing when they pull off Zappa’s Zombie Woof.

Euphoria Brass Band cranks out Sublime’s What I Got at the Tijuana Jazz and Blues Festival 2015. Lotta not-so-subtle influences heard in that jam, and I like it.

“i found a cd of this band in a abandoned ship on the coast of uruguay – montevideo, never heard nothing about this band. really a surprise. grettings. good shit.” [2016 YouTube comment]

The Mudcat Blues Band featuring Danny ‘Mudcat’ Dudeck hails from everywhere, but apparently is anchored in Atlanta. This vid is from 2013, Matildas, Music Under the Pines in Alpharetta, Georgia – jump to 1:34 for Whiskey.

Well that seems to sum up my attitude for today. Have a great weekend folks, don’t worry ’bout the ‘Rona, and do what you wanna do. See you tomorrow for something or other.

Saturday Matinee – Bimpson, Rory Gallagher, Dave Alvin & The Battle Hymn Of The Republic

Saturday, 4 July 2020

Bimpson (via). “Some guy taught himself 3D animation during quarantine and the result is this hilariously bizarre blog cartoon called Bimpson.” The comments on the UToobage are pretty good, too.

I just watched this at 2x speed and it’s like a whole new world of Bimpson. Bimpson goes Hyper-Bimpson. Highly recommend.

Well I played it back at 0.25x speed and it’s like a demonic Bimpson. Bimpson goes sacrificial. Whatever you do, don’t watch it repeatedly unless you want Bimpson to put a curse on your crops. It happened to me.

I went .75 and it’s was satanic enough. Every time you lower the speed, it’s like a new circle of hell.

Rory Gallagher “Shin Kicker” live at Montreux 1979.

Nice lineup: Dave Alvin sings 4th of July, with David Hidalgo, Flaco Jimenez, Pete Sears, Max Baca and Los Cenzontles, San Francisco, CA. February 16, 2017.

Happy Independence Day to all, and may this Glorious Country remain free from tyranny forever.
