Saturday Matinee – Patches The Horse, John/Lee/Pop Mashup & The Reverend Horton Heat

Saturday, 27 September 2014

Meet Patches the Horse.

That’s  just bizarre, but it kept my attention for more than 15 seconds, so I’m posting the clever mashup featuring Iggy Pop and Peggy Lee. Little Willie John’s “Fever” will never sound the same. So where do we go from here? I’m stumped. Oh wait, I got it. Let’s slow it down a tad with some retroness.

It suits me, so it suits you. The Reverend Horton Heat‘s “Galaxy 500” makes the nut.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more of teh awesome.

Saturday Matinee – Alfred, Iggy, Tom, Billy & the Beat Farmers

1926 Hitchcock debut [via].

Posted this one before, but it’s one of my favorites, featuring Iggy Pop & Tom Waits.

Very pretty song by Billy Paul about adultery. I doubt he would have gotten a hit singing about Mr. Jones, but we’re not gonna go there. Mr. Jones was pissed enough.

The Beat Farmers are still around, and we’re going to be around for a while as well. Have a great weekend, see you tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Plympton, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, Iggy Pop, Tom Waits

Bill Plympton is one of the last of the great hand-drawn animators. Amazing stuff, his.

I know this is early, but when I saw the post at Weasel Zippers about Holdren telling the FCC to force broadcasters to air “population control” messages, I thought of Chairman Mao.
Which naturally made me think of this: A version I’ve never heard–no Lowell George, but another very good (recently) dead guitar player.

Tip o’ the tarboosh to cbullit of Soylent Green for that link and comment.

So what the heck. Little Feat with Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris and Jesse Winchester, all on the Midnight Special 1977.

Pure Three-Chord rock n roll from Iggy Pop. The perfect bass line cracks me up: bombombombombombombombom…

Haven’t posted any Tom Waits in a while, so here you go.  It’s all about the lies.
