Lord help me. I don’t think I’ve heard shakedown gospel this good since Sister Rosetta Tharpe. This is The Future Shape of Sound.

Past week so hot I was forced to dig out my official Steve Irwin Crikey Shorts, hose myself down and sit for hours in front of the Vornado. Thankfully, tropical storm Kay showed up and blew out the heat. I’d forgotten how nice it is just to stand in the rain – and listen.
Have a great weekend. Tomorrow we’ll mess with stuff.

Bangkok’s Trix ‘O’ Treat has a cool mix of retro flavors with a bit of punk thrown in, and Billy Move is now my favorite song so far today. [Nice shirt at 1:09].
“Dude’s bass is lower than my parents’ expectations for me.”

Wikipedia describes 1000mods as “a stoner metal band from Chiliomodi, Greece, formed in 2006. [..] The name of the group is a pun linked to the village in which they were formed, as ‘a thousand’ is pronounced ‘chillia’ in Greek.”
Have a great weekend, see you back here tomorrow for no reason at all.
Funbar, Deerpeople (2013)
I heard this song years ago (on Atomic Flash Deluxe Hi-Fi Radio) but didn’t know the title or the band name until recently. Formed in 2012 in Stillwater, Oklahoma, Deerpeople were described as psychedelic folk rockers. One day they just stopped performing and recording for no particular reason, but reunited to officially disband in 2019.
Love is All Right, Cliff Nobles & Co. (1968) Cliff Nobles recorded this A-side for the 45rpm, but the B-side, The Horse, was the instrumental hit. It became one of the most recognizable instrumentals ever, and EVERY high school band played it. The Horse was also the theme song for Radio Veronica, a popular dutch pirate radio station that broadcast from a ship on the North Sea in the 1960’s & 70s.
Steve Ripley & The Tractors were responsible for creating the highest selling album ever recorded in the state of Oklahoma. Ripley passed away at his home in Pawnee, Oklahoma in 2019. He was 69

Tony Spinner is probably better known as a background vocalist/guitarist for Toto. He owns owns a 1964 Chevy SS.
Have a great weekend, busy or not, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for, you know, whatever.
Thunderbirds, A. Aallon Rytmiorkesteri (2000) A. Aallon, also known as A. Aalto and A. Aalto’s Rhythm Orchestra, is an iskelmä (pop) music group from Ylöjärvi, Finland. Interesting mix of styles, but this particular space western surf instrumental struck a chord with me.
