Saturday Matinee – Red Skelton, George Thorogood, Chuck Berry (with Keith Richards & Linda Ronstadt) & Postmodern Jukebox

Saturday, 21 January 2017

The late comedian Red Skelton‘s greatest soliloquy is as relevant today as it ever was.

George Thorogood‘s excellent cover of the Hank Williams classic seems appropriate.

From the 1987 rockumentary “Hail, Hail! Rock ‘n’ Roll” on Chuck Berry‘s 60th birthday concerts. If I recall, the video has some amusing footage featuring Berry schooling Keith Richards on playing Berry and telling him to quit messing with the amp settings.

Postmodern Jukebox covers Cage The Elephant. I would have lost a bet on the origins of that song.

Have a great weekend, folks. Every little thing’s gonna be alright.

Saturday Matinee – 1922 Hotties, Grampa Shreds, 50 Blues Riffs & Jeff Healey with Dr. John

Saturday, 14 January 2017

1922 beauties and fashions in color [via].

Anonymous octogenarian walks into a guitar store and doesn’t play “Smoke On The Water.”

This guy nails the styles and acknowledges that there are caption typos in the vid. The Utoobage post has the entire list.

Jeff Healey (with Dr. John) had a killer jam recorded in 1988.

Have a great weekend, folks. Rock on wit yo bad sef.

Saturday Matinee – Sign Painters, Unsatisfying, PPAP, Chewbacca Screams; JJ Grey & Mofro

Saturday, 7 January 2017

Great Grampa Strutts and his sons were painters. I tried it once, but didn’t have the proper equipment.

“Unsatisfying” by Parallel Studio.

PPAP is mildly disturbing.

JJ Grey & Mofro cranked some swamp soul at the Peoria Blues Fest on 31 August 2013. Lotta recognizable influences, especially Joe Cocker.

Have a great weekend folks.

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Hot Links

Sunday, 18 December 2016

NOEL is LEON spelled backwards, so here is Mr. Redbone (with Dr. John) from the album “Christmas Island.”

Nice list of Christmas Carols organized by language.

Here’s a great title from 1553: “Un Flambeau, Jeannette, Isabelle” (“Bring a Torch, Jennette, Isabelle.”)  Basically, two girls are directed to create a fire hazard in a stable, someone bangs on the door to deliver cakes, but there’s a sleeping newborn so everyone better shut up.

The medieval Christmas carol, “Entre le bœuf et l’âne gris” (“Between the Ox and the Grey Ass”) as performed on 10 Theramins.

Q: What’s the oldest Christmas carol?
A: I dunno, but here’s a start.

Every Christmas Tree needs a Jingle Pug.
(That one’s for you Ms. Oops.)

The Story of the Crap Tree.

The missus showed me a coupon that included a turkey stuffing recipe using White Castle Sliders yesterday. Wow.

Every rock band has a Christmas song, including The Ramones.

Los Angeles Ex-Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, aka Tony Villar, grunts “Jingle Bells” [via The John and Ken Show AM640KFI].

Pah-Rumpa-Pum-Pum indeed. This is the best version ever.

Ever hear anyone say, “Now, bring us some figgy pudding?” Neither have I, but if someone does, this is what you gotta do.

Saturday Matinee – Vi Hart’s Eggs, Steel Forge, Tom Waits & The Magic Piano

Saturday, 17 December 2016

What a fun Singalong [via].

This fascinates me. No idea what they’re making, but it needs a Tom Waits soundtrack, like this:

Wow. Christmas is only week away, so we need a nice happy video. So many to choose from, and so many sappy ones that I don’t want to post, so here’s one that always makes me smile:

Such a simple brilliant fun idea. I wish there were more clips or an uncut version, but I haven’t found them… yet.

Have a great weekend, folks, and enjoy the holidays.

 

Saturday Matinee -Slidin’ in Montreal, John Popper with Eric Clapton, The Blues Brothers, John Lee Hooker & Aretha Franklin

Saturday, 10 December 2016

Self explanatory slippery wreckage with an appropriate soundtrack. (Here’s another version with a Canuck/Reggae/Punk soundtrack.)

Is it too early for a Christmas jam? Nah.

Yeah, I didn’t recognize Eric Clapton, but you can’t miss John Popper, and I can’t keep the image of John Belushi out of my head while listening to him.

Sorry about that, but I’ll make up for it. Lookee here:

Mitica scena del film “The Blues Brothers” in cui Jake e Elwood entrano nel ghetto per andare a reclutare Matt Guitar Murphy e Blue Lou Marini. Eccezionali le performance di John Lee Hooker (è proprio lui che canta il suo stesso pezzo Boom Boom Boom) e di Aretha Franklyn, che interpreta la moglie di Matt.

Vi auguriamo un grande fine della settimana, la gente. Ci vediamo di nuovo qui domani per più divertente.

Saturday Matinee – Crater Face, Postmodern Jukebox, Gunhild Carling & The Best Moth Joke You’ve Ever Heard

Saturday, 26 November 2016

Crater Face” is an animated short about two lonely moon pimples and a deranged astronaut (by Skyler Page).

Awesome RickRoll by Postmodern Jukebox on the RMS Queen Mary in 2016, featuring Gunhild Carling on vocals, trumpet, recorder, trombone & bagpipes. Really.

BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!

I knew a guy who could play two saxes at the same time (with rubber bands holding down a couple of keys) and I can believe that someone might be able play two trumpets simultaneously, but three? Had there not been a video I’d have never believed it.

The song is “El Manisero  (aka “The Peanut Vendor) and it dates to 1930s Cuba. Stan Kenton’s version is my favorite because of all the discordant stuff that he worked into it.

Classic Norm MacDonald delivery.

Have a great holiday weekend, folks. Enjoy the leftovers while you can, and don’t EVEN try to retell that moth joke because you’ll fail miserably.

 

Saturday Matinee – Gary Lewis & The Playboys, Joe Cocker & Tom Jones, George Benson, and…

Saturday, 19 November 2016

Gary Lewis & The Playboys‘ “She’s Just My Style” reached #3 on The Billboard Hot 100 in January 1966. The chicks dug it.

Joe Cocker‘s take on “Delta Lady” earned him a hit in 1969, and in 1970 he doubled down by performing it with Tom Jones. The chicks dug it.

George Benson‘s recording of “This Masquerade” was a soft jazz R&B hit in 1976, reaching No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 3 on the Hot Soul Singles charts [Wiki]. The chicks dug it.

What do those songs have in common? They were all written by this guy:

Yeah, another great rock/soul/jazz/country icon passed away this week. R.I.P. Leon Russell (1942-2016).

Have no worries, these things happen all the time, and nobody lasts forever. Let’s have fun while we can. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Nature Rx, Dan Martinez & Buckwheat Zydeco

Saturday, 5 November 2016

This is a Public Service Announcement, posted as required by the Federal Internet Content Control Act (FICCA) of 2017.

Dan Martinez aka the Piano Juggler is amazing [h/t Bunkessa].

The 1961 hit “Hey Baby” by Bruce Channel (featuring Delbert McClinton on harmonica) is one of those songs that’s almost impossible to do a bad cover of. DJ Ötzi’s version from 2000 is probably the best known, but Buckwheat Zydeco‘s take from 1994 is pretty good (and there’s a 1970 VW Karmann Ghia in the vid, too).

Have a great weekend, folks. More coming up.
