Saturday Matinee – Steve ‘n’ Seagulls, Little Feat & Buddy Guy

Saturday, 13 May 2017

Steve N’ Seagulls is a band from Finland that records bluegrass covers of various heavy metal groups (including AC/DC) and they’re entirely awesome.

Little Feat was (and is) an underrated band that didn’t get as much attention as they deserved, despite Jimmy Page’s endorsement. Here they are with Emmy Lou Harris and Bonnie Raitt on backup vocals playing their 1973 hit “Dixie Chicken.” Great swamp rock.  (Check out the lead-in to their 1979 album “Down On The Farm” for a grin.)

The embedded title says it all, but the vid starts late and cuts off too soon. Jimi Hendrix studied the masters, including Buddy Guy.

Buddy Guy paid tribute to complimented both Hendrix and Cream at the Byron Bay Blues Fest in April 2014.

Have a great weekend, folks, and don’t forget Yo Mama Day.

The Saturday Matinee Dixie Edition – Duane Eddy, Little Feat & The Band

Saturday, 11 July 2015

If this flag represents slavery, racism and oppression, then every flag of every nation in existence in 1776 did so as well. So what. This country abolished slavery over a hundred years ago, yet slavery still thrives in many parts of the world, most notably Africa and the middle east. Where’s the outrage over that?

There is none because the attack on the Confederate Flag has nothing to do with slavery or racism, and everything to do with attacking fiscally conservative southern politicians.

Let’s rock.

The late racist Dick Clark brings racist Duane Eddy onto American Bandstand to perform “Rebel Rouser” wearing Confederate garb.

The racist band Little Feat performs “Dixie Chicken” featuring racist vocalists Bonnie Raitt and Emmylou Harris.

The Band‘s classic racist song is a good wrap up for this racist edition of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, folks, and let’s STOP THE IDIOCY

 

Saturday Matinee – 4 Shorts, A Really Happy Dude, Captain Beefheart & Little Feat

Saturday, 8 March 2014

Four shorts in under 90 seconds, with balloon animals.

What a happy guy. After those two vids, we gotta walk it down.

Here’s Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band (1974) with “Upon The My O My.” We’re not quite at ground level yet, and since we neglected to honor Mardi Gras last week, let’s amend and repair the accidental and unintended oversight with this:

Little Feat performing “Dixie Chicken” with a lineup including Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt & Jesse Winchester on The Midnight Special in 1977. Very cool.

Have a great weekend, folks, and always remember.

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

Saturday, 17 October 2009

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.
