Saturday Matinee – Steve ‘n’ Seagulls, Little Feat & Buddy Guy

Saturday, 13 May 2017

Steve N’ Seagulls is a band from Finland that records bluegrass covers of various heavy metal groups (including AC/DC) and they’re entirely awesome.

Little Feat was (and is) an underrated band that didn’t get as much attention as they deserved, despite Jimmy Page’s endorsement. Here they are with Emmy Lou Harris and Bonnie Raitt on backup vocals playing their 1973 hit “Dixie Chicken.” Great swamp rock.  (Check out the lead-in to their 1979 album “Down On The Farm” for a grin.)

The embedded title says it all, but the vid starts late and cuts off too soon. Jimi Hendrix studied the masters, including Buddy Guy.

Buddy Guy paid tribute to complimented both Hendrix and Cream at the Byron Bay Blues Fest in April 2014.

Have a great weekend, folks, and don’t forget Yo Mama Day.

Saturday Matinee – Ice Stacking, Room Full Of Blues, Magic Slim & Buddy Guy

Saturday, 27 February 2016


Lake Superior pwns the ice [via].

13 February 2016
“Lake Superior put on a dramatic show with her recent ice in Duluth, Minnesota.
[…]
The seemingly endless ice sheets broke into large plates and stacked on shore, sounding much like breaking glass. The ice thickness ranged from about 1/4″ to about 3″ thick.”

Room Full Of Blues (AKA The Institute of Awesome). They’ve been around for decades and don’t get half the respect they deserve. I heard them live in the ’80s and my ears are still ringing.

How ’bout some Magic Slim? Nice bad boy groove, that.

Buddy Guy coached a young prodigy on stage, and displayed no condescension whatsoever. What a class act.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here to tomorrow, because I said so.

 

Saturday Matinee – Russian Love Bugs, Romanian Finger Flute, Buddy Guy & Stevie Ray Vaughan

Love Bugs in 1912 Moscow. [via]

„Digi Fonful” ieste un instrument muzical inventat de Ştefan Popescu, fost concurent la „Românii au talent .În ciuda numelui, instrumentul nu are nicio componentă digitală. Digi Fonful, care seamănă cu un fluier, este făcut să cânte cu ajutorul unui deget introdus într-un capăt al intrumentului şi al aerului suflat printr-un orificiu.În clipul de mai sus îl puteţi vedea pe cel mai mare „virtuoz” al Digi Fonfului, Ştefan Popescu, în acţiune.

Well, duh. [via]

Buddy Guy from February 2015, pushing 80 years at the time of that interview. He always looked like he had fun playing, as he did in this 1989 vid with Stevie Ray Vaughan:

That wraps it up for this edition of the Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, and we’ll have more fun tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – G.E. Smith, Buddy Guy & Danny Rockabilly

Saturday, 23 May 2015

The very underrated G.E. Smiths Top Ten Seconds on SNL.

We may have posted this one before, but so what. It’s awesome. Buddy Guy‘s “Damn Right I Got The Blues.

So let’s wrap up this bad baboso with Danny Rockabilly and His Clan. [Music is cool, vid might not be safe for kids.]

Have a great weekend, folks, and remember those who sacrificed their lives on this Memorial Day weekend.

Saturday Matinee – The Travelin’ McCoury’s, Muddy Waters & Buddy Guy / Robert Junior Lockwood / Koko Taylor / Charlie Musselwhite

Saturday, 27 December 2014

Keller Williams with The Travelin’ McCourys‘ “Pumped Up Kicks” made me laugh. Clever stuff that.

How ’bout some Muddy Waters? Here’s a jam from 1978. (Note that James Cotton is not the first harp blower on the vid.)

Killer blues tribute with a great lineup. 45 minutes of pure awesome.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Wingsuit Fail, Honey Cakes, Karen Marie (with Postmodern Jukebox) & Buddy Guy

Saturday, 16 August 2014

Wingsuit fail vid from Corcovado, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
[SFK. Yeah, as horrible and disturbing as it is,  it’s SFK.]

Bees in China [via].

Karen Marie‘s take on Little Willie John‘s “Fever” (done in 12 styles with Postmodern Jukebox). It kept my attention, even though the video erroneously credits Peggy Lee for the song. LWJ recorded it in 1956;  two years later Peggy Lee covered it.

Here’s the great Buddy Guy and his take on the song. And with that we’re out. Have a great weekend, folks. See you soon.

Saturday Matinee – The Spotnicks, The Specials, Bad Manners & Buddy Guy

Saturday, 7 December 2013

The Spotnicks’ “The Rocket Man” (1962). Pre-Devo awesome [via].

The Specials‘ “Ghost Town.” Too much fighting on the dance floor.

Ms. Wireways (?) a Jamaican radio DJ in Southern California in the ’80s, said this was the best reggae song ever. Bad Manners’ “Sampson & Delilah” fits the bill, even though the vid sucks donkeys. Close your eyes and listen instead – it is a pretty song.

Buddy Guy is one of the last original bluesmen. Here he is, backed up by G.E. Smith who is no slouch either.

That’s it for this edition. Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee: Chicago Transit Authority, Buddy Guy; Mike Welch, Kirk Fletcher & Josh Smith

Saturday, 25 May 2013

Chicago Transit Authority, the self-described “rock and roll band with horns,” from before they got all sappy.

Buddy Guy, one of the greatest living bluesmen, earned recognition the hard way. (I first heard this song on a freebee Tabasco promotional cassette in the 80s. Both sides were the same so you didn’t have to rewind it.)

This awesome 3-axe swamp-rock-blues jam featuring Mike Welch, Kirk Fletcher & Josh Smith should hold your attention for a while.
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend, folks, see you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – World’s Strongest Redneck, Derek, Bob, Gatemouth & Johnny, and Buddy Guy

Saturday, 31 July 2010

Redneck washing machine. When Steve McGranahan‘s not bending cast iron skillits for charity, this funny guy makes videos.

“Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?” was one of Derek & The Dominos’ greatest hits.

One of my favorite Wailers songs.

Here’s a 44 year old Clarence Gatemouth Brown with a 32 yearold Johnny Jones playing  “Chicken Fat” in 1968. [via]

Happy 74th Birthday to Buddy Guy, one of the last original bluesplayers.  Here’s a guy who left the south for Chicago and played for sandwiches to keep from starving.

Have a great weekend, folks. See y’all back here tomorrow.
