Saturday Matinee – Plympton, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, Iggy Pop, Tom Waits

Bill Plympton is one of the last of the great hand-drawn animators. Amazing stuff, his.

I know this is early, but when I saw the post at Weasel Zippers about Holdren telling the FCC to force broadcasters to air “population control” messages, I thought of Chairman Mao.
Which naturally made me think of this: A version I’ve never heard–no Lowell George, but another very good (recently) dead guitar player.

Tip o’ the tarboosh to cbullit of Soylent Green for that link and comment.

So what the heck. Little Feat with Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris and Jesse Winchester, all on the Midnight Special 1977.

Pure Three-Chord rock n roll from Iggy Pop. The perfect bass line cracks me up: bombombombombombombombom…

Haven’t posted any Tom Waits in a while, so here you go.  It’s all about the lies.
