Saturday Matinee – The Great McGonigal, Super Chikan & The Sensational Alex Harvey Band

Saturday, 20 September 2014

The Great McGonigal, aka W.C. Fields, knew his cigar boxes.

Guy’s playing a Diddley Bow. Pure awesome, and here’s his website.

And since the sentient voters of Scotland wisely chose to postpone secession from Great Britain for now, here’s this:  my favorite Scottish band ever:

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band was oddly under appreciated in the US (except for a cult following in Cleveland) but was popular in the proto-punk theater-rock scene in Great Britain. Vambo Rools.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow for more inanity.

Saturday Matinee: Stuff (in no particular order)

Saturday, 25 October 2008

Pete Drake is kinda famous in a way you’d never suspect after watching this.  I love it. [Found here.]

Ms. Cellanea found this original version of Jurassic Park.

One of the prettiest but saddest Country Rock songs ever recorded:  “Melissa” by the Allman Bros.

On the other hand, the Allmans’ “Jessica” lifts the load. Roadtrip music at its best.

Okay. Y’all heard of Bo Diddley.  Here’s the Diddley Bo played by a master, Seasick Steve.  All rhythm; raw as y’all can get.

(That last one’s for Roo Skinner Phil.  Give him a howdy and tell him Bunk sent you.)
