Saturday Matinee – RT & The 44’s, Speedbuggy USA, Dave & Phil Alvin

Saturday, 18 July 2015

RT N’ THE 44s is Swimmy Webb, Brendan Willard, Leif Bunting, Johnny Sneed, and RT Valine. Featuring Timbo of Speedbuggy on slide can [via]. Awesome roots rock.

Speedbuggy USA cranks it. How about some more retro?

The Blasters were awesome and put on a great show when I saw them at the Whiskey in 1981 or so. (They were the warmup band for The Fabulous Thunderbirds.) Here are brothers Phil and Dave Alvin pickin’ and flickin’ in 2014.

Have a great weekend, folks.
Be back here tomorrow for more stuff.

Saturday Matinee – Маричка, Lucero, Dave Alvin & The Guilty Ones

Saturday, 9 February 2013

“Blaxploitation style soviet funk! Фрагмент из музыкального фильма Софии Ротару – Песня всегда с нами 1975 года.”
Hit teh goggle translate. [via]

Lucero‘s “I Want Your Love.” Ben Nichols & Company rocks at the Memphis  Sun Studios in 2012. Jump to 1:10 for the good stuff. There’s a lot of influences in that song, something for everybody, and it reminded me of The Blasters.

Dave Alvin & The Guilty Ones “Harlan County Line” is pure badass grinding blues, and it’s just what’s needed to wrap up this episode of The Saturday Matinee.

Have a great weekend, folks and don’t sweat the weather. We’re working on it.

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.
