Saturday Matinee – The Leopards, Danny Rockabilly, Char & Tomoyasu Hotei with Brian Setzer

Saturday, 24 September 2016

The Leopards are from Finland. They appreciate tight skirts, Rat Rods and Rockabilly, but not in that order.
Annastiina Virmavirta – voc, bass
Aleksi Manninen – guitar
Paulo Poverini – drums

Danny Rockabilly and His Clan are from Budapest and they’re entirely awesome. From his FaceBook page:

Üdvözlök mindenkit a zenekar oldalán!
A nevem Danny Rockabilly! Sok próbálkozás után egy fix zenekar egyben tarása helyett, úgy döntöttem, hogy csinálok egyet fix tagok nélkül. így lehetőségem nyílik zenélni olyan emberekkel, és barátaimmal, akik tényleg szeretik, és szenvedéllyel játszák a Rockabillyt! Ez az én Klánom! Remélem élvezni fogjátok a zenét amit nektek játszunk, és hamarosan találkozunk a koncertjeinken! Folyamatosan töltünk fel képeket és videókat a munkánkról! Kellemes időtöltést kívánunk az oldalunkon!

That says it all. So what’s left? THIS:

Char and Tomoyasu Hotei jammed with Brian Setzer on a cover of Eddie Cochran‘s 1958 hit “C’mon Everybody” in 2009. Shredding starts at about 00:02:20. Wait for it.

Have a great weekend, folks. We’re gonna have some fun.

Saturday Matinee – Christmas Eve

Saturday, 24 December 2011

Monty Python’s Terry Gilliam’s 1968 Christmas Card is classic. [Found here.]

What a voice! Darlene Love sings her 1963 hit in 1993.

Brian Setzer rockin’ out from a few years ago with “Dig That Crazy Santa Claus.”

Three vids is enough for tonight. Have a Merry Christmas Eve.

Saturday Matinee – Hot Cats

Saturday, 25 September 2010

Cats and croissants. [via]

I loved the Stray Cats’ retrobilly thang, and this was one of their finest moments. (BTW,  “Fridays” was a much funnier show than Saturday Night Live IMO.)

Speaking of Eddie Cochran, here’s Gene Vincent’s  “Be-Bop-A-Lula.”

Vince Taylor beat out The Who with this cover of Johnny Kidd & The Pirates’  “Shakin’ All Over.”

And here’s one of the greatest latter day rock and roll love songs in my opinion. Have a great weekend, folks, and may you all have pleasant surprises.

Saturday Matinee: Christmas Present & Psst

Saturday, 20 December 2008

1906-st-nick

According to the source, this clip was found in New Brunswickeshire England, in the basement of a home once owned by one of the founders of the Salvation Army.  It’s bean carbon dated to about 1925.

Brian Setzer’s rockin’ version of Elvis’ rockin’ version of “Santa Claus Is Back In Town.”

Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride” choreographed with lights.

It’s not Christmas to Bunk unless he hears this version by the Ronettes.  (Note that in the video the horse is bustin’ butt and that he also has windshield wipers.)

Q:  What’s Christmas without the Ramones?
A:  Christmas.

[Update 22 December 2008–

Plane Tross has noticed and verified a significant congruence between this post and a previous one: “It’s amazing that when you play “The Ramones” song it’s in perfect sync with “Honka Chickm” below it.”

That’s gotta be one of the best comments ever on this blog. Thanks gobs, Plane. Comments like that are what make me wanna get out of bed almost every morning.]
