All Star (Smashmouth cover) by Pupsi & The Melons. Watch the carving & tuning process, or jump to 1:44 for the song.
I heard a song years ago, lost the title and the band name, and after many failed attempts I gave up looking. After all these years I found it: Our Deal by Best Coast. Very cool 1960s reverb retro sound; there’s a live version here.
Clarence Gatemouth Brown (1924-2005) was a rare talent, played multiple stylesm and if you told him a 10 penny nail was a musical instrument, he could play it.
Guess that’ll do for a last-minute collection, so have a great weekend and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for more, you know, stuff.
Oh, and that song I’d been looking for since 2015? I found it here…
In 1932, Franklin Roosevelt ran against incumbent President Herbert Hoover for the presidency, hence the caricatures, and there are hints about the repeal of Prohibition in this cartoon. Hoover first shows up at 0:45. “Mr. Nobody” (1:12) probably refers to the other six candidates, including 3rd runner-up Socialist Party candidate Norman Thomas. Roosevelt’s nose and chin appear at 2:12.
The depiction of Congress at 2:28 is relevant today (as is Betty Boop twerking, promising everything for free). [Video found via here.]
Yep. That’s Penn Gillette (of Penn & Teller) on bass ca 1991. I first saw it in a movie theater as part of “Animation Celebration” or something, but I couldn’t find a link.

The late Justin Wilson was a national treasure, I gar-on-tee. I got ticked off today at a restaurant in Santa Barbara called “The Cajun Kitchen.” I ordered red beans and rice, and got a plateful of pinto bean mud on ricepaste with cornbread. No class.
Cajun music, live from Mulates, Beaux Bridge, Louisiana.
Freddy King and Clarence Gatemouth Brown, together for a little over a minute.
Whoa! Lookee here! T-Bone Walker, live! Dang, I’ll have to give our crack team of webminers a tip for finding this rare gem.
Have a great weekend folks, and be back here tomorrow for more fun.
I remember playing this for minutes on end.

THE classic hobo song performed by Harry “Haywire” McClintock. According to the Wikipoids, the song dates to a 1928 sheet music copyright by one “Billy Mack.” Prior to the widespread availability of recorded discs, most of the money to be made was in selling sheet music for parlor pianos.
McClintock sued for copyright infringement and lost, yet the song is usually attributed to McClintock anyway.
We’re gonna skip the history of country music, bluegrass and blues, and jump right into Clarence Gatemouth Brown’s “Okie Dokie Stomp,” originally recorded in 1954. (Song starts after a brief interview.) Not impressed? Then check out “Pressure Cooker” previously posted here.
