Saturday Matinee – Traffic Circle, Yes, Commander Cody & Bill Kirchen

Saturday, 13 July 2019

I have that record somewhere. I think it’s called “Roundabout.”
Oh wait.

YES, they did some some cool stuff to listen to while sitting in the dark at 2:30AM staring at a lava lamp and watching rotating light cylinder projections on the walls of your dorm bedroom and suddenly realizing that all your friends had gone to bed. C’mon admit it. They sang like musically talented prepubescent girls. Relayer was their last decent album IMO, but none of their stuff was roadtrip music.

Commander Cody‘s classic cover (of Charlie Ryan‘s 1955 recording of “Hot Rod Lincoln“) featured the King of Dieselbilly Bill Kirchen.

Check out what Kirchen did with some guitar mods over 60 years ago:

See what he did there? Now listen to this:

Be patient, there’s some awesome in that vid.

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll do something or other tomorrow.

Henri Lanos 1888 – Les Travaux de la Tour Eiffel – La Grande Echelle

Monday, 8 July 2019

Henri Lanos (1859-1929) was a French illustrator and painter whose work appeared in French magazines like La Caricature, L’Illustration and Je Sais Tout. He was member of the Société des Artistes Français (French Artists Society).

3-point perspective (1 point + zenith + right) is awesome. He even detailed rivets, and showed Paris’ 1855 Palais de l’Industrie in the distance.

Saturday Matinee – Strandbeest, Elvin Bishop & The Wailers

Saturday, 6 July 2019

Awesome mechanics.

Glad to see Elvin Bishop is still rockin’.
He won me over years ago when he shouted out a recipe for carp. [Dedicated to Retired Geezer.]

The Wailers‘ “Stir It Up” (1967) is possibly the best Reggae groove ever. This might be the 2nd best. Here’s the 10th best.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more aftershocks.

Saturday Matinee – The Iguanas, The Forbidden Pigs & The Paladins

Saturday, 29 June 2019

New Orleans band The Iguanas (Rod Hodges on guitar & accordion, Joe Cabral on sax & guitar, Rene Coman on bass, Doug Garrison on drums, and Eric Lucero on trumpet) live at Cafe Nine, New Haven, Connecticut on Oct. 19th, 2008. Nice vibe.

I have an Iguanas CD.

The missus and I saw them live. Billy would climb up on his upright bass, the drummer would leap over his drum set and hammer on the strings. Great show.

I have a Forbidden Pigs CD.

Glad to see The Paladins are still around. Saw them live – they were the warm up band for The Fabulous Thunderbirds at the now-defunct Golden Bear. Bass player was killer, looked like he was biting an invisible tennis ball while slapping.

I have a Paladins CD.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for stuff.
