Saturday Matinee – Birdie Num Num, Death Pop, Favela Brass, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and Jimmie Vaughan

Saturday, 27 April 2019

A scene from The Party, a 1968 cult movie starring Peter Sellers.

I’m at a loss. Annoying death metal band lip-synchs to annoying pop band.

Favela means “slum” or “shantytown” in Portuguese. Awesome happens about 0:40 in. More here.

The Fabulous Thunderbirds were (and are) entirely awesome. Great lineup, including Jimmie Vaughan.

Yeah. Wait. That.

Have a great weekend, folks. Might have to go dark next week due to unfortunate family business, but don’t worry. We’ll be back soon enough.

Saturday Matinee – Subconscious Herd Mentality, THE Rope Trick, Kim Wilson & The Fabulous Thunderbirds (plus Flight 93 Trailer)

Saturday, 10 September 2016

Herd mentality experiment [via].
That explains a lot.

This is THE rope trick [via]. Now let’s rock and roll.

Kim Wilson has always amazed me. One of the best blues harp players around, Wilson doesn’t get the recognition he deserves, IMO. I’m no slouch on a Hohner chromatic with a Ham Radio bullet mic, but I sure as hell can’t pull off what he does.

Kim Wilson & The Fabulous Thunderbirds (featuring Jimmy Vaughan) jam with Stevie Ray Vaughan in a tribute to Ray Charles‘ classic “What’d I Say” circa 1984.

Have a great weekend, folks, and remember to put your Flag out on Sunday if only for the passengers and crew of Flight 93.


Saturday Matinee – Animals & Mirrors, The Doghouse, The Greg Johnson Set & The Fabulous Thunderbirds

Saturday, 6 June 2015

Animals and mirrors [via].

Beware of The Doghouse. Been there. I overlooked the first Valentine’s Day post-marriage as I considered it to be a dating holiday. I ate damp corrugated cardboard for months [via].

The Greg Johnson Set is a band from New Zealand, sounds like a traditional Irish band, performs “People Can’t Talk In This Town” from 1992. Somehow the concept of Freedom of Speech is being quietly vanquished [via].

Lets lighten it up a tad. How ’bout some great rippin’ by Jimmie Vaughan with The Fabulous Thunderbirds?

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

Saturday Matinee – Billy Preston, Little Milton w/ Jimmie Vaughan, Popa Chubby

Saturday, 6 July 2013

Billy Preston “Outta Space” 1973.

No info on that vid, except that Jimmie Vaughan introduced Little Milton and gave him the floor to play “That’s What Love Will Make You Do.”

Popa Chubby live at the Chesterfield Cafe (2006?) with his heavily-modified version of Chick Willis’  “Stoop Down Baby.”

From the Utoobage Comments:
“This guy rocks. I played at an open mic a few nights ago and right after I went off he walked in. He ended up doing a set with the house band for the next 3 hours, he used my gear! I hope some of his mojo rubbed off on my amp. He has one sick tone, I didn’t think my amp could sound as good as he did haha.”

Sorry for the late post, been kinda busy in meatworld. Have a great weekend.

Saturday Matinee – Rodent Gravitron, Tedeschi & Vaughan, and Ray Charles

Saturday, 22 December 2012

2 Gerbils 1 Wheel is the rodent equivalent of The Gravitron. [via]

“Let The Good Times Roll” – Susan Tedeschi with Jimmie Vaughan & Double Trouble, from Austin City Limits, 12 January 1998.

Crispness is clumping and the geezer’s getting fat. Here’s Ray Charles singing Mel Tormé‘s 1944 classic “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire).”

“Tiny tots with a nose full of snots” is my favorite line in that song. Although it’s been said that Barney loves Fred, Merry Christmas To You.
