Saturday, 4 August 2018

Very cool trio from Williams, Arizona, not to be confused with the Midnight Howlers of Madera, California.

Saturday Matinee – The Leopards, Danny Rockabilly, Char & Tomoyasu Hotei with Brian Setzer

Saturday, 24 September 2016

The Leopards are from Finland. They appreciate tight skirts, Rat Rods and Rockabilly, but not in that order.
Annastiina Virmavirta – voc, bass
Aleksi Manninen – guitar
Paulo Poverini – drums

Danny Rockabilly and His Clan are from Budapest and they’re entirely awesome. From his FaceBook page:

Üdvözlök mindenkit a zenekar oldalán!
A nevem Danny Rockabilly! Sok próbálkozás után egy fix zenekar egyben tarása helyett, úgy döntöttem, hogy csinálok egyet fix tagok nélkül. így lehetőségem nyílik zenélni olyan emberekkel, és barátaimmal, akik tényleg szeretik, és szenvedéllyel játszák a Rockabillyt! Ez az én Klánom! Remélem élvezni fogjátok a zenét amit nektek játszunk, és hamarosan találkozunk a koncertjeinken! Folyamatosan töltünk fel képeket és videókat a munkánkról! Kellemes időtöltést kívánunk az oldalunkon!

That says it all. So what’s left? THIS:

Char and Tomoyasu Hotei jammed with Brian Setzer on a cover of Eddie Cochran‘s 1958 hit “C’mon Everybody” in 2009. Shredding starts at about 00:02:20. Wait for it.

Have a great weekend, folks. We’re gonna have some fun.

Saturday Matinee – British Army Marching Band, The Wolfgangs & Devil On Wheels

Saturday, 4 October 2014

Nice BAMB flashmob work in Cardiff, Wales, 5 October 2013, playing “Colonel Bogey,” a march  written in 1914 and made famous in the movie “The Bridge On The River Kwai.”

Whenever I hear that popular tune, for some reason I think of psychobilly. Yeah. Let’s go there.

The Wolfgangs‘ “Cannibal Family” rocks it in this vid from 2011. Where do we go from here? How bout a hot rod / juvenile delinquent movie?

Devil On Wheels” dates to 1947, features some vintage rods and sappy lessons.

In addition to being the first film about street racing youth, it is also notable for being one of the first films to feature actresses (Terry Moore & Noreen Nash) wearing bikini tops. [Wiki]

Have a great weekend, folks. We’ll do something different tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Country Dick Montana Tribute, The Blasters, Levi & The Rockats, The Reverend Horton Heat, Johnny Carroll & His Hot Rocks

Saturday, 23 July 2011

Nice tribute to the late Country Dick Montana at The Belly Up in Solana Beach, CA, November 2010. From the Utoobage:

Dave Alvin sings the song “Beat Generation“, and is joined by members of the Beat Farmers, Candy Kane, Peter Case, Mojo Nixon, Cindy Lee Berryhill, and others…

Here’s Dave Alvin & The Blasters with “Marie Marie.” I saw them at the Whiskey in 1980.

Another band from the punkabilly scene: Levi  & The Rockats on the Mike Douglas Show, 1979. (That hepcat on bass is hilarious.)

Reverend Horton Heat’s “Psychobilly Freakout.” [Don’t watch if you’re epileptic…]

Johnny Carroll & His Hot Rocks “Rockin’ Maybelle” is the real deal from about 1957.

Too hot to handle and too cold to hold. Those should keep you jumpin’  jivin’ and wailin’ for a while. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – A Baboon, The Baboons, The Guana Batz, The Aquabats, The Skatalites

Saturday, 24 April 2010

How to get a baboon to tell you where the water is in the Kalahari. Amazing. [Found here.]

The logical follow up to that video is The Baboons‘ “Drinkin’ Gasoline.” (Don’t laugh, they were on Walker, Texas Ranger, and if Mr. N says they’re awesome then they ARE awesome.)

The logical follow up to that video is more Rockabilly. Here are the Guana Batz with “Streetwise.”  Following the Guana Batz we have:

The Aquabats! Here’s a live version of “Fashion Zombies.” One last one before we go:

The Skatalites‘ rock steady ska with “Lawless Street.” Have a great weekend folks, see y’all tomorrow.
