Saturday Matinee – Turbulence, Laurie Anderson, MiniMall & The We Five

Saturday, 15 July 2017

This Is Your Captain speaking. We’re experiencing some minor turbulence and we ask that you stop screaming.” Wild rides were ridden on at the Birmingham Airport 23 February 2017 [via].

Okay, there’s a link to some surreal 1980s Laurie Anderson stuff above, so let’s go to 2010 live for fun.

Anderson was the Ken Nordine of the 80s (without the baritone voice).

MiniMall has a bit of a retro vibe and consists of:
Merced Stratton — composer, ukulele, vocals
Maral Ohan — composer, vocals
Allegra Rosenberg — composer, bass
Wynne Males — trumpet, vocals
Brennan Doyle — drums

[Merced & Wynne ate sandwiches on our rock-n-roll patio recently because Bunkessa knows them. They were all like harmonizing and musical and stuff.]

The “We Five” had this awesome hit in 1965, a cover of Ian & Sylvia‘s song “You Were On My Mind.”

Sylvia Fricker supposedly wrote it in a bathtub in Greenwich Village in 1962. Yeah it’s lip-synched, but it’s still fun as hell. One of these days I need to find out who the lead guitar on the left is because he rocks.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more of you-know-what.

Saturday Matinee – Miniatur Wunderland, Allotria, The Allotria Jazz Band, Oompah Brass & The Perch Creek Family Jugband

Saturday, 28 December 2013

I’m sure this vid was posted here before, but it still amazes me.  More info here: http://www.miniatur-wunderland.com/

While looking for something else I found this, and it kept my attention long enough to post it for your upcoming New Year’s Eve celebrations. If you can figure it out, enjoy it.

I was actually looking for these guys. The Allotria Jazz Band plays early American jazz and Dixieland. You may not have heard them or of them – they’re from Munich and they’re great.

Once the camera SsTFD this is pretty good stuff.  “Stairway To Heaven by the Oompah Brass.  Now for something completely different.

The Perch Creek Family Jug Band is an Australian group that performs American jug band music. Here they are, live in Edinburgh, Scotland, 2012.

That should hold you for a while. Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll be back tomorrow with brand new stuff.
