Saturday Matinee – Bench, Eric Bibb, Pepe Ahlqvist w/ the Wentus Blues Band, & the Sad Sam Blues Jam

Such a touching story. In clay.
[h/t Mme. Jujujive]

“America, for all of its associations with pain and its bloody history, has always been a place of incredible hope and optimism. To be American, and particularly to come from New York City, is to be blessed.” – Eric Bibb

Eric Bibb was interviewed in April 2019 by Charlie Heat at Kensaltown Live. Jump to 01:12 for some stompin’ blues.

Finnish blues rocker Pertti “Pepe” Ahlqvist & the Wentus Blues Band, live in Borås, Sweden (2004). Scandi blues at its best.

Let’s go one more. The Sad Sam Blues Jam features sisters Sadie Johnson (Vocals/Guitar) and Sam Johnson (Bass), with Krista Hess (Vocals/Guitar) and Matt McCarthy (Drums). Sam Motter is the wailin’ sax player. That’s what they sounded like in 2014 while still in high school!

Looks like that’ll do it for now. Gonna see if I can unclog the sidebar widgets that WorpDress arbitrarily farked up, but other than that, have a great weekend and we’ll be back tomorrow with more roughage.

Saturday Matinee – Pwnisher’s Render Challenge, Rex Race, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band & The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

Pwnisher hosted a competition that resulted in this mesmerizing compilation of entries based on the same “simple” animation:

It’s way beyond my capabilities, and I’m surprised no one walked the poor bastard up the stairs.

Nice find, Jonco.

The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is always a fun romp, and they have a new album in the works.
Rev. Peyton – Guitar/Vocals
Breezy Peyton – Washboard/Vocals
Sad Max Senteney – Drums/Vocals

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones don’t believe in anything anymore. It’s from their 11th studio album, When God Was Great (2021).

Yep, that’ll do for now. Have a great weekend, watch out for the bugbears and we’ll throw something on the floor to kick around tomorrow.

Got To Get You Off My Mind, Soloman Burke, 1965 Burke: “It was written in California the night of Sam Cooke’s death. I learned of Sam Cooke’s death after leaving him two hours prior to that. At the same time I learned about my wife wanting a divorce. A special delivery letter was at the desk waiting for me in the hotel.”

Background vocals include Dee Dee Warwick (sister to Dionne Warwick) and Emily “Cissy” Houston (mother of Whitney Houston and aunt to the Warwick sisters).
