Oorutaichi is a “free-form, improvisational electropop artist from Osaka. Inspired by The Doors and The Residents,” he once had a band called Urichipang, and the Utoob description (via Google Translate) doesn’t help much:
PV of “Atlantis” from the album “Giant Club” by Urichipan-gun, which has been well received by UA, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Seiichi Yamamoto, and many other people as one of the masterpieces in J-POP history.
What a laid-back groovy groove. The Heavy Heavy is “a reverb-drenched collision of psychedelia and blues, acid rock and sunshine pop” based in Brighton, UK.
Transfiguration (2020) by Universal Everything is a remaster from their 2011 original. UE is a global collective of digital artists, architects and engineers, and there’s some very cool CGI animations in their portfolio.
Donks by Felix Colgrave: “The name comes from a box of miscellaneous plastic objects my child has. Things that are not categorically blocks or figurines or anything describable. I referred to them as ‘gonks’, which was pronounced by my then-2-year-old as ‘donks’. “

Matt “Guitar” Murphy, Memphis Slim & Billy Stepney on Jazz Prisma, Brussels, Belgium (1963).
Regarding Matt Murphy, one UToob commenter summed it up: “I’ve heard many a fine guitarist mention this guy as a major influence, from Jimmy Page to fellow blues legend Freddie King. He was Howlin Wolf’s lead guitarist before Hubert Sumlin came along, and played with Ike Turner, Buddy Guy, Etta James, Chuck Berry, Sonny Boy Williamson, Otis Rush, and of course the Blues Brothers. Underrated player.”
“After a little more than 2 months of work here it finally is! ‘The Drink’, a short film that’s 100% CGI. […] I really tried replicating the look of old 60s film photography and the almost dreamy Hollywood feel. I spent a lot of time researching lenses, different characteristics, how old 90s movies where filmed, how traditional film reacts to certain conditions, etc, and I’ve really learnt a lot during this whole process.”
“Anything that’s R’n’R is fine.” Mick Wigfall & the Toxics are a European power trio that most in the U.S. (including me) have never heard of – details at the link – and that’s a very nice 1955 Chevy Bel Air in the vid.
The band consists of
Mick Wigfall -double bass & vocals;
John Kuriak – drums;
Sébastien “Seb” Ailhaud – guitar.
It’s a wrap. Have a great weekend, ignore the bogeymen, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow just for the hell of it.
