Saturday Matinee – A Band of Bees, The Hi-Jivers & The Future Shape of Sound

A Band of Bees got a bit of swampy jug band in their blood.

Nashville retro-rockers The Hi-Jivers, filmed in the Torremolinos hills of Spain during the 2020 Rockin’ Race Jamboree.
Dawna Zahn – Vocals
Austin John – Guitar
Hank Miles – Upright Bass
Jason Smay – Drums

Lord help me. I don’t think I’ve heard shakedown gospel this good since Sister Rosetta Tharpe. This is The Future Shape of Sound.

Gonna get hot again this week, maybe get wet, maybe not. See you back here tomorrow for an in-depth discussion, or maybe we’ll do something else instead.

Show Stopper, The Cashmeres (HEM Records, 1965) There is little information about this soul group from Washington D.C. (not be confused with The Cashmeres, a doo-wop group from Atlanta GA, or The Cashmeres from Brooklyn NY, or The Cashmeres from Portland OR). A  45rpm copy of Show Stopper is a rarity; according to Discogs, prices range from $680 to $1800 depending on condition.

Hotshot.

THIS is a great idea.

Life as an LA Influencer.

Too bad he didn’t as me. 😀

Almost everything I forgot to post.

Awesome. Drone Photos of the Year.

Brickit is an app for Legos [h/t Miz Beth].

“I look like the Queen of England,” proclaimed Betty.

Saturday Matinee – Alen Tkalčec, Cee Lo Green via Jaleel White & The Dead South

Alen Tkalčec gets around. Travel clips are from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Italy, Greece, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia and Slovenia.

One of the happiest break up songs ever. Amazing how Jaleel White (aka Steve Urkel) sounds exactly like Cee Lo Green in this vid from 2011.

The Dead South, always a tad quirky, brings you back down to earth with a slightly disturbing version of a happy traditional.

Have a great weekend and we’ll be back tomorrow, whenever you decide to stop by.
