Saturday Matinee – Geek Magic, Mad Goose, Goose Grease, Glad ‘N Greasy & Greasy Wheel

Nice card trick… heh. Story behind it here.

Goose! Guy shoulda wrung its neck and brought the catch home. Yum!

And after you clean it, save the goose grease.
The late Roy Buchanan tells why.

The Beat Farmers‘ “Glad ‘N Greasy” fits. Poor video from the early 80s(?) was part of a demo tape they circulated. (Two of the original members are gone: Country Dick Montana and Buddy Blue.)

The Bryan Beller Band‘s “Greasy Wheel” is a nice bit of groovy oddness. (Listen for the Zappa influence… there’s a reason for that.)

That’s five vids to make the set.  Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.
