Saturday Matinee – Tommy Burst, Stefan Ilic, Steyr 80A Sincrobulli & Robbie Robertson

Saturday, 21 March 2020

I had something similar that shot plastic pellets. Since there were no refills, you had to chase them down after spraying the playground. (Not sure, but I think the bad guy is Otis from The Andy Griffith Show.)

Serbian trio featuring Maestro Stefan Ilic on fiddle [via].

More tractor? Don’t know anything about this one except it’s an Austrian Steyr 80A Sincrobulli.

Robbie Robertson remakes The Band‘s classic The Weight, with performers from around the world. That song is one of my all-time favorites.

We have some tough times ahead, and the best thing to do is to ignore the newsmedia fear-mongers. The biggest threat is not the Wuhan v-word, but the overwrought government reactions to it, so work with what you got until the storm passes… and it will.

See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Hahn Beer, Ten Years After, Samantha Fish & Justin Johnson

Here’s another.

Okay, I think I see a pattern. Here’s one more.

Okay, I’ll stop, but not before I link to this Danier Leather commercial.

Alvin Lee & Ten Years After‘s “I’m Going Home” is one of the greatest speed metal rock tribute songs ever, and this live version dates to 1969 – Woodstock. TYA had only one Top 40 hit.

How ’bout some Samantha Fish?

Definitely dangerous. Hand her something with four wires nailed to it and she’ll jam it down your throat. I want to hear what she can do with a diddley bow.

That’s Justin Johnson playing classic Son House on a custom-made glorified diddley bow.

Have a great three-day weekend folks and please remember what Memorial Day is all about. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Xylophone Ad, Joey Ramone, New York Dolls, The Milenberg Joys, Red Nichols

Saturday, 16 April 2011

A wooden ball is set atop a long, wooden structure that might be a xylophone or a marimba, constructed in the middle of the woods. As the ball rolls downward, dropping onto each wooden “key,” it plays a note, and suddenly we are hearing Bach’s Cantata 147, “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.” .. “We did not add any artificial music at all,” Harano wrote (though they did adjust some levels to “bring out the sound of river and nature”).

Yeah, ultimately it’s a commercial, but it’s still very very cool. [via]

R.I.P. Joey Ramone  (d. 15 April 2001)

The New York Dolls were stuck between classic rock and proto-punk,  but they had that pseudo-tranny stuff going on that turned off a lot of potential fans, at least in my opinion.

[Deleted the video. Screw ’em since they’ve blocked embedded links.  If they don’t want free advertisement, then they shouldn’t post it on the Utoobage.]

The Katzenjammers. Nice trumpetingness. [h/t to Bunkessa]

So, in place of a cool video of the folks originally posted above, here are The Milenberg Joys. I think they had more talent than that Katzjamband anyway.

Red Nichols & His Five Pennies were awesome in their time.

Speaking of time, I’m out of it. Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more fun.
