Kitty, Daisy and Lewis Durham are a quirky group of siblings from London who play a mix of R&B, blues, soul, punk, rock and roll, and West Indian music. This one sounds a bit swampy to my ear, and their version of Polly Put Your Kettle On is a good ‘un. More about them here.
Jerry Jeff Walker (1942-2020) in Austin, Texas, 2014. He had a successful run in the 1970s and never stopped having fun. (Anyone who can write a song about relieving yourself in the breeze has my vote.)
This obscure band from the UK has great potential, but damn are they ugly. Cool song, though.
That’s it for now, see you tomorrow, a/c or not.
Jerry Jeff Walker‘s re-recording of “Trashy Women” from 2014. Glad to see he’s still around (even if his rhymes still suck donkeys). Don’t remember him? He first came onto my radar with his cover of one of the greatest beer bar singalong songs ever.
[Bonus clip: Here’s Ray Wylie Hubbard asplainin’ the background story of the song he wrote.]
The Marcus King Band fires all 12 cylinders. Nice style mash IMO.
Rachel Mazer rolls a nice groove, wants me so bad she can’t let it go. (Rachel, get in line and be patient. I’ll get to you in time.)
If you didn’t notice, all three vids are from the same source, Jam In The Van (backed by Turtle Wax). Nice to hear some fresh air.
Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more fun stuff.
Harley-Davidson WTF courtesy of Jonco. Nice soundtrack.
Joey Smith won some kind of blues award without a backup band. I considered that cheating until I heard him shred the awesome.
(No Wiki page yet).
Jerry Jeff Walker can’t rhyme for crap, yet his songs are still awesome.
That does it for this edition of The Saturday Matinee. Come back tomorrow for new oddities.
Froggie payback in less than half a minute.
“I Wanna Go Home To The Armadillo.”
I’ve heard that song so many times without knowing the words, let alone the source. It’s the theme song to Austin City Limits, performed by Gary P. Nunn and Jerry Jeff Walker. (Oh and by the way, unless you’re sporting functional longrider hats, y’all just look silly.)
Red Nightmare is a must watch. Anything featuring Jack Webb is by default automatically awesome and true. [via]
Have a great weekend, folks. More great stuff is coming up, whether you like it or not.
