Saturday Matinee – 2020 Cast Interviews, Big Bug, Gatemouth Brown & Roy Clark, Ry Cooder w/ Buckwheat Zydeco & Lenny Kravitz, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds

Saturday, 12 September 2020

Well done satire, that.

Big Bug vid found here.

Clarence Gatemouth Brown & Roy Clark (with Leon Rhodes) do some serious pickin’ on Hee Haw (1979). If this ain’t roadtrip music, nothing is.

Ry Cooder, Buckwheat Zydeco and Lenny Kravitz, having some fun in New Orleans 2005.

The Fabulous Thunderbirds cover T-Bone Walker‘s The Hustle Is On (1950). Not sure of the date or location.

That’ll do for now. Gonna get some R&R and see you back here tomorrow as far as you know.

Saturday Matinee – HM Royal Marine Band, Kapua+Tatofi+Maoli, Redbone & Billy Preston

Saturday, 5 September 2020

Post Horn GalopThe Bands of HM Royal Marines. Amazing post horn fanfare duel.

Hawaiians Kaipo Kapua, Josh Tatofi and Nu’u Maoli. This medley should be named “See A Minor, Effin’ G.” Those vocals are tight.

Redbone had a nice run in the 70s, Witch Queen of New Orleans being one of my favorites for the swamp-rock sound. Very underrated band IMO, even if they did wander into the pop playpen occasionally. “Come and Get Your Love” (1974) was an earful of soul.

Billy Preston sported one of the greatest ‘fros in the business, and wrote one of the best instrumental jams ever – Outta Space. This version is from 1987.

Have a great holiday weekend, have some fun despite what the scolds say, and we’ll do more stuff tomorrow.

DEVO 1977

Devo, 1977

“I don’t think Devo would have hatched in a major city. We were surrounded by an anti-intellectual culture and antagonistic people in Ohio. By the time we came up on the radar of the tastemakers, our aesthetic was fully formed.”

Saturday Matinee – Little Remy & The Flying Rockers, Michael Kiwanuka & Willy DeVille

Saturday, 22 August 2020

Little Remy & The Flying RockersShadoogie (1962)
Indorock band uit Den Bosch
Ad Boeren – Drums; Rinus Huismans – Slag Gitaar; Guus Silooy – Solo Gitaar; Cees Vermeulen – Bas Gitaar.

Willy (Mink) DeVille had an unusual sound for the late ’70s scene, and Moon Martin‘s Cadillac Walk was one of my favorites. (I didn’t know that Mink DeVille was one of the original house bands at CBGB, but that explains a lot.) h/t Immortal Jukebox.

Michael Kiwanuka‘s One More Night is a cool groove with a quirky video stapled onto it. Can’t quite put my finger on what this reminds me of, but it’s a real smooth combination. Born and raised in London, Kiwanuka is the son of Ugandan parents who escaped the brutal Amin regime.

Have a great weekend, folks, stay cool and don’t let the ninnienannies get to you. Be back here tomorrow and we’ll do stuff.

Adapt.

Four Or Five Times, King Oliver’s Dixie Syncopators (1928).
Had trouble identifying this song (untitled file name) and King Oliver apparently recorded more than one version (perhaps with his Creole Jazz Band). Others recorded this song about the same time including McKinney’s Cotton Pickers, Jimmie Noone’s Apex Club Orchestra and Ben Pollack & The Whoopee Makers.

How bad is it? This bad.

First time hearing Phil Collins.

This is one bigass turtle mouth.

Everyone needs an inflatable monster maze.
