Saturday Matinee – Girl X, Roy Head, The Black Keys & Gary Clark Jr.

Twisted clay animation by Takena Nagaona:
“I began making clay animations at high school. I’m a huge fan of horror movies and metal music. My works are often renowned for violence and gore!”
[h/t Gorehound]

Roy Head (sans The Traits) showed off his JB moves  while lip-syncing on  Hollywood A Go-Go (a Shindig wannabe) in 1965. Too bad the vid fades out before the song is over.

The Black Keys are still at it.

Gary Clark Jr. set the surf on fire in 2016 with 10-1/2 minutes of pure awesome.

Have a peaceful Easter and take time to remember what it’s all about.

Saturday Matinee – Bench, Eric Bibb, Pepe Ahlqvist w/ the Wentus Blues Band, & the Sad Sam Blues Jam

Such a touching story. In clay.
[h/t Mme. Jujujive]

“America, for all of its associations with pain and its bloody history, has always been a place of incredible hope and optimism. To be American, and particularly to come from New York City, is to be blessed.” – Eric Bibb

Eric Bibb was interviewed in April 2019 by Charlie Heat at Kensaltown Live. Jump to 01:12 for some stompin’ blues.

Finnish blues rocker Pertti “Pepe” Ahlqvist & the Wentus Blues Band, live in Borås, Sweden (2004). Scandi blues at its best.

Let’s go one more. The Sad Sam Blues Jam features sisters Sadie Johnson (Vocals/Guitar) and Sam Johnson (Bass), with Krista Hess (Vocals/Guitar) and Matt McCarthy (Drums). Sam Motter is the wailin’ sax player. That’s what they sounded like in 2014 while still in high school!

Looks like that’ll do it for now. Gonna see if I can unclog the sidebar widgets that WorpDress arbitrarily farked up, but other than that, have a great weekend and we’ll be back tomorrow with more roughage.

Saturday Matinee – Pushing Hay, The Ballad of Holland Island House & The Tom Stormy Trio featuring Rhythm Sophie

Pushing hay [via]. Makes me itchy just watching it.

“The Ballad of Holland House” is based upon a true story.

Holland Island sits in Chesapeake Bay, near Wenona, Maryland. The five-mile-long island was settled in the 1600s, and at one time had a population of 360 people and 70 buildings. Erosion ate away at the island, which sat on silt and clay, and the residents moved away between 1914 and 1918. The island’s church was moved in 1922, and only one house remained standing. It was built in 1888. For decades, the water ate away at the island, and the last remaining house finally collapsed in October of 2010. What’s left of the island is now a marsh, home to hundreds of sea birds. See pictures of the island and the house -and the cemetery- at the Baltimore Sun [via].

How ’bout some retro rockabilly from Budapest?

The Tom Stormy Trio (featuring Leipzig’s Miss Rhythm Sophie) is just the thing to wrap up this edition of The Saturday Matinee.

Have a great Passover / Easter, folks.

Saturday Matinee – Happy Halloween!

I thought this was clever.  [Found here.]

Can Head by the same guy who did the classic Potato Hunter.

[Found on Plate O’Shrimp… nice new find by our crack team of webminers.]

Easy Dub Allstars’ reggae version of Pink Floyd’s “Us and Them.”  Nice riddim… [Tip ‘o the Tarboosh to “S&Dman” of Blogmocracy.]

And what is Halloween without Oingo Boingo? Danny Elfman’s band was tight and bizarre at the same time.  In 1980 or so, G-off and Bunk sat next to them at Madame Wong’s, buying them rounds and vice versa, without knowing who they were. Great show.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
