Saturday Matinee – Allotria Jazz Band, Fats Waller, Leon Redbone & Captain Beefheart

Saturday, 19 May 2018

Die Allotria Jazzband ist eine Combo, die 1969 in München gegründet wurde und dem traditionellen Jazz verpflichtet ist. [Allotria translates to Monkey Business.] “Wolverine Blues” was written and recorded by Jelly Roll Morton in 1923.

Two decades later, Fats Waller was playing the same style.

Nice lip-sync of a pretty song. According to the UToobage:
“Myra Johnson voiced-over the girl “vocalist” sitting on the piano, who, according to trumpeter Eddie Henderson, is his mother.”

In 1975, over five decades later, Leon Redbone recorded his own version (and this isn’t it. Click the link). Mr. Redbone’s music is meant for eggs and coffee and a side of toast.

That’s a version of Blind Blake‘s recording from 1929.

Captain Beefheart recorded an entirely different song called “Diddy Wah Diddy” that was later covered by The Fabulous Thunderbirds.

Whoa. I just found out that “Diddy Wah Diddy” was written by Willie Dixon and Bo Diddley, and was recorded in 1956.

Now it all makes sense.

Have a great weekend folks and be back here tomorrow for more diddy wah diddy.

1930s Socialist Propaganda for a 4 Hour Work Day

Wednesday, 9 May 2018

Work less, get paid the same wages. Sounds like part time to me. That’s a way for a government administration to doctor the numbers to show unemployment decreasing while reducing the gross income of the work force. I’ll pass.

Saturday Matinee – The Skids, Linkin Bridge & Cinco De Mayo Madrid Flash Mob

Saturday, 5 May 2018

The Skids “Into The Valley” [via]. Nice Ramones influence.

Today is the start of The 2018 Kentucky Derby, and yes, it has a themesong.

Linkin Bridge‘s “My Old Kentucky Home” is killer

Oh, and Cinco De Mayo has everything to do with selling beer in the US and nothing to do with Mexican Independence Day.

This is kinda cool. Mariachi flash mob showed up in Madrid, but Mariachis originated in Mexico not Spain. Go figure.

Have a great weekend. folks, see you back here tomorrow.
