Saturday Matinee – Fool-Pitying Life Lessons, Fruit Sounds, The Beat Farmers & The HU Band

Saturday, 12 January 2019

“First name is Mister, middle name is a period, last name is T” [via].

Whoa. What’s that? Click on it to find out.
(Don’t worry, it’s not an advert. – Bunk)

Fruit noises [via]. It’s what my insides sound like at 3AM after eating the good stuff at 6PM.

The Beat Farmers was one helluva fun bar band, and “Blue Chevrolet” was one of my favorite roadtrip songs. I don’t recobanize the lineup except for the Jerry Raney lookalike on vocals and rhythm guitar, and it appears to be a tribute concert at the Belly Up Tavern in 2013. The legendary Country Dick Montana passed away in 1995 while playing drums on “The Girl I Almost Married.”

Never heard Country Dick?
This one’s for you, and so is the next one.


Mongolian folk metal blues band The HU is badass killer. Nope. Not gonna mess with them at all [via].

Have a great weekend folks. See you back here after the earth rotates 360 degrees.

Geese Teeth here.

Zoom Zoom Zoom” by Jimmy and the Barbarellos is great a capella.

It’s A Good Life” was a short story written by Jerome Bixby in 1953 that was turned into one of the creepiest Twilight Zone episodes ever.

Beat Generation was written by Rod McKuen.

The Late Country Dick Montana had a solo EP. Listen to snippets here (NSFW).

Wow. I’d never heard of “Action Park.” This amusement park was so dangerous the owners were forced to buy additional ambulances for the local hospital.  Lemur King mentioned it here, with additional links here, here and here.

Conway’s Game of Life is a fun curiosity from a few decades ago.

Saturday Matinee – Country Dick Montana Tribute, The Blasters, Levi & The Rockats, The Reverend Horton Heat, Johnny Carroll & His Hot Rocks

Saturday, 23 July 2011

Nice tribute to the late Country Dick Montana at The Belly Up in Solana Beach, CA, November 2010. From the Utoobage:

Dave Alvin sings the song “Beat Generation“, and is joined by members of the Beat Farmers, Candy Kane, Peter Case, Mojo Nixon, Cindy Lee Berryhill, and others…

Here’s Dave Alvin & The Blasters with “Marie Marie.” I saw them at the Whiskey in 1980.

Another band from the punkabilly scene: Levi  & The Rockats on the Mike Douglas Show, 1979. (That hepcat on bass is hilarious.)

Reverend Horton Heat’s “Psychobilly Freakout.” [Don’t watch if you’re epileptic…]

Johnny Carroll & His Hot Rocks “Rockin’ Maybelle” is the real deal from about 1957.

Too hot to handle and too cold to hold. Those should keep you jumpin’  jivin’ and wailin’ for a while. See you back here tomorrow.
